Nexans has announced the completion of its acquisition of La Triveneta Cavi, a European leader in medium—and low-voltage cables. The acquisition is a significant leap forward in Nexans’ strategy to become an electrification pure player. La Triveneta Cavi brings a rich heritage of innovation, cutting-edge manufacturing and logistics, and a seasoned management team to further accelerate Nexans’ value creation in electrification.

Based in Italy since 1965, La Triveneta Cavi primarily manufactures low-voltage cables for building, infrastructure, fire-retardant cable systems and renewable energy applications across 30 countries. The company operates a best-in-class, vertically integrated network with three cable production units featuring highly efficient logistic capabilities, in addition to a world-class “in-house” copper drawing facility. The company boasts a workforce of approximately 700 skilled employees and has generated current revenues of more than 800 million euros over the last twelve months.

The enterprise value of around 520 million euros represents a multiple of 5.6x 2023 EBITDA pre-synergies and 4.6x post-run rate synergies. It will be high-single-digit accretive to earnings per share (EPS) from year one. Nexans’ financing of the acquisition will have limited impact on run rate leverage to remain ≤1.0x.

Christopher Guérin, Nexans’ CEO said: “The acquisition of La Triveneta Cavi is fully in line with our vision of Nexans as a global electrification pure player. This move significantly strengthens our presence in the electrification segment , where we have successfully completed two acquisitions over  the past two years and it will further enable the acceleration of new sustainable offer launches in high-demand sectors. Last but not least, I cannot be more delighted to welcome the talented people of La Trivineta Cavi to the Nexans family.”
