Dela

IRVING, Texas, April 10, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Exela Technologies, Inc. ("Exela") (NASDAQ:XELA), one of the largest global providers of platforms for business process automation ("BPA"), announced today that it had completed the acquisition of Asterion International Group ("Asterion"), a well-established provider of technology driven business process outsourcing, document management and digital data processing across Europe. The acquisition expands Exela's European business to over $200 million in annual revenue and will enable Asterion's customers to access Exela's full suite of BPA solutions. Exela does not intend to disclose financial terms of the transaction.

Asterion currently serves over 250 key customers in Europe from 13 operating locations and 30 customer sites.  The acquisition, which comes with minimal customer overlap, is also highly complementary to the business of Exela's document-management focused subsidiary, Exela Enterprise Solutions, Inc. (formerly known as Novitex Enterprise Solutions), which provides a similar set of solutions to customers in North America.

"With this acquisition we are poised to enhance Asterion's current customer offering with our BPA solutions, including front, middle and back office automation," said Ron Cogburn, CEO of Exela Technologies. "In addition, this acquisition is an exciting opportunity for us to address the needs of our multinational customers that are looking for a partner that can service them globally."

"We're excited about joining the Exela team and share Exela's vision for our industry," said Carsten Lind, CEO of Asterion. "By combining our capabilities, Exela will deliver even more value to our customers through a broader range of technology enabled solutions."
