WEST FARGO, N.D., April 30, 2018 — Titan Machinery (TITN), a leading network of full-service agricultural and construction equipment stores, announced today it has entered into a definitive purchase agreement to acquire all interests of two companies, AGRAM Landtechnikvertrieb GmbH and AGRAM Landtechnik Rollwitz GmbH (collectively “AGRAM”), which consist of four Case IH agriculture dealership locations in the following cities of Germany: Burkau, Altranft, Rollwitz and Gutzkow. In its most recent fiscal year, AGRAM generated revenue of approximately $30 million. The acquisition is expected to close in July 2018.
Titan Machinery, the largest CNH dealership worldwide, already operates over 19 dealerships in Bulgaria, Romania, Serbia and Ukraine, where it handles both Case IH ag equipment and Case Construction products.
David Meyer, Titan Machinery’s chairman and chief executive officer, said, “We are excited to expand our international presence into the large, stable and well established markets of Germany. Founded in 1990, AGRAM has been a successful Case IH and Steyr dealership complex.”
Meyer continued, “The AGRAM market is populated with large acre farm units, similar to the progressive farms in our markets in the Balkans and Ukraine, and covers a territory stretching over 300 miles of quality farmland bordering Poland and the Czech Republic. We look forward to joining forces with the current AGRAM management team and employees to continue AGRAM’s long-standing commitment to successfully serve this important market.
