France's Norbert Dentressangle says it has completed the previously announced acquisition of all the shares of privately held U.S. third party logistics (3PL) provider, Jacobson Companies from Oak Hill Capital Partners.

The transaction was valued at $750 million (€560 million) in cash on a debt-free and cash-free basis, plus a capped earn-out relating to future performance. The acquisition is being financed through a combination of Norbert Dentressangle reserves and available credit lines. The deal has received all necessary regulatory approvals.

Herve Montjotin, Chief Executive Officer of Norbert Dentressangle, said, "We are very pleased to announce the completion of this deal. The closing of this acquisition will enable us to begin integrating Jacobson into the Norbert Dentressangle Group and to begin this new step in our development in the U.S., a strategic market for us."

The transaction increases the scale of Norbert Dentressangle, both globally with a +15% increase in annual revenue to $6.8 billion USD (€5 billion), and also in the U.S. logistics and transport market where the group becomes scalable with approximately $800 million USD (€600 million) of annual gross revenues in 2013.
