Lantronix Completes Acquisition of Electronics and Software Reportable Business Segment from Communications Systems, Inc.
August 2021 by Marc Jacob
Lantronix, Inc. announced that it has completed its previously announced acquisition of Transition Networks and Net2Edge, which comprises the majority of the Electronics and Software reportable business segment of Communications Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: JCS) (“CSI”).
The transaction will bring immediate scale to Lantronix, with revenues from the combined company expected to total more than $100 million on an annual basis. The acquisition will bring complementary IoT connectivity products and capabilities, including switching, Power over Ethernet (PoE) and media conversion and adapter products.
Lantronix sees significant operating and product development synergies in the combined company and expects significant day one synergies will drive immediate non-GAAP earnings accretion upon closing, and the company further expects to realize $7 million in annual run rate synergies over the course of the first 24 months. Lantronix will release guidance for its fiscal year 2022 on its fourth quarter fiscal year 2021 earnings conference call, with that date to be named shortly.
Silicon Valley Bank, the bank of the world’s most innovative companies and their investors, along with SVB Capital, provided acquisition financing.
O’Melveny & Myers LLP served as legal advisor to Lantronix.
