Closing of AMI (Advanced Magnetic Interaction) acquisition

Clichy, France – September 06, 2022 ‐ BIC announces today that it has completed the acquisition of AMI (Advanced Magnetic Interaction). The company’s financial results will be consolidated from Q3 2022.

Created in 2014 by Jean-Luc Vallejo, Tristan Hautson, and Timothée Jobert, AMI uniquely leverages magnetometric technology to enable highly accurate, real-time position tracking without the need for embedded electronics in devices, addressing the increasing consumer need for user-friendly, sustainable, and secure digital accessories.

This acquisition strengthens BIC's R&D capabilities in Digital Expression, one of the pillars of BIC's Horizon strategic plan, and will accelerate the deployment of AMI's patented technology, notably through B2B activity in Digital Creative and Consumer Electronics applications.
