Nuance operates in 66 locations across 19 countries in Europe, Asia and North America. In 2013, Nuance generated a turnover of CHF 2.1 billion (USD 2.3 billion).

In 2013, the two businesses had a combined market share of close to 15% in the airport retail industry based on turnover. “The geographic presence of Nuance is complementary and strengthens Dufry’s positions in strategic key markets in the Mediterranean, North and Central Europe, Asia and the United States and Canada. As a result of the transaction, Dufry will emerge with a leading position in the Mediterranean in addition to its existing leadership positions in Latin America, Caribbean and North America. In addition, the acquisition will strengthen its diversified business in Asia with attractive locations that will provide a strong basis for further growth in the region,” said the Swiss group in a release.

The transaction is expected to close in 3Q 2014.
