Brother Announces Tender Offer of Roland DGBrother Industries Ltd. announced its plans to acquire shares of Roland DG Corporation, a Japanese company providing world-leading digital printing solutions.

The tender offer is scheduled to commence in mid-May 2024 once all conditions for the transaction are fulfilled smoothly, including compliance with domestic and foreign regulations, no adverse occurrence to both companies and failure of the tender offer by other possible offers. The proposed price of the tender offer is JPY ¥5200 (USD $35.17) per share. Notably, this offer is 165 yen higher than a previous one made by XYZ K.K.

By acquiring Roland DG, Brother expects to gain product development and sales synergies, especially in the printer market.

Recently, Roland DG has embarked on a promising new digital transformation frontier. Brother’s aim aligns with Ronald DG’s transformation strategies, leading to this acquisition.
