STOCKHOLM, Sept 18 (Reuters) - Telecoms gear maker Ericsson ERICb.ST said on Friday it would acquire Cradlepoint, a provider of wireless WAN solutions, in a deal worth $1.1 billion on an enterprise-value basis.
The Swedish firm said operating margins would be negatively affected by about 1% in 2021 and 2022, with half of it related to amortization of intangible assets.
Idaho, U.S.-based Cradlepoint had sales of 1.2 billion crowns ($137 million) in 2019, with a gross margin of 61%.
Ericsson said its 2022 group financial targets remained unchanged.
