Steinke wrote:

“We believe that management is interested in pursuing additional acquisitions in Latin America, both within countries where the company already operates (Brazil, Mexico and Chile), as well as expansion into new Latin American countries. ACCO is also interested in continuing to build its presence in the faster‐growing consumer and school product segments, as well as building and acquiring branded products that have demand driven by the ultimate end‐user. The GOBA Internacional acquisition fits these objectives, as ACCO noted that GOBA possesses leading brands in consumer and school products such as and Acme. As such, this acquisition is largely about growth opportunities as opposed to cost synergies.”
