William Demant Mulls Acquisitions

William Demant Holding A/S (CPSE:WDH) is seeking acquisition opportunities. Niels Jacobsen, President and Chief Executive Officer of William Demant, said, “On the M&A side, yes, of course, whenever there are big opportunities out there, we have to be ready. We also have the capacity, going forward, to be ready”. “We will never say no to a significant value-creating acquisition; then, of course, we will have to revisit, if needed, this program.
