MPower products business acquired by Legend

Legend Corporation has reported an agreement that will see it acquire 100% of MPower Group’s product distribution business for $4.6 million.

The acquisition includes emergency and evacuation lighting (Bardic), and off-grid renewable power systems and industrial batteries (to trade as M+H Power Systems). The Bardic and M+H Power Systems brands are distributed throughout Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific region.

“This is a really exciting first acquisition for the Legend business, under the new ownership, and represents a unique growth opportunity into new and growing end markets. Following the transaction, Legend will have a market-recognised emergency lighting range, and can provide customers with a fully-fledged off-grid renewable power solution and an industrial battery product offering,” said Legend CEO Gary Uren.

“Bardic and M+H Power Systems are two iconic Australian businesses that are well entrenched in the marketplace and will deepen Legend’s value proposition for existing and new customers build further scale and provide a platform for further innovation.”

M+H Power Systems’ off-grid solar and industrial battery business provides reliable off-grid solar power systems that help clients to achieve energy independence in areas of the country where the grid is a less viable option. M+H Power Systems’ industrial batteries are part of the off- grid solar solution and also used in utility, telecoms other critical standby applications. The electronics engineering capability housed in Legend’s Hendon business will further enable development of emergency evacuation systems as well as off-grid solar products.

“Legend will continue to drive new opportunities that increase our distribution here in Australia and New Zealand, whilst broadening our customer and distribution network. Today’s acquisition is just one of many opportunities in Legend’s pipeline that can accelerate innovation in core markets as well as service new end markets to the benefit of all our customers,” said Uren.

The transaction is expected to complete at the end of February 2020.
