Luxemburg-based stainless steel and alloys producer Aperam SA (056997440.LU) said Wednesday that it has signed an agreement to purchase VDM Metals Holding GmbH from buyout fund Lindsay Goldberg for 438 million euros ($540.3 million).

Aperam said the deal will allow it to expand its premium specialty alloys portfolio and enlarge its geographical footprint.

The acquisition should generate about EUR20 million in synergies by 2020, boost competitiveness and spur development of new products and applications, Aperam said.

VDM Metals is Europe's second-largest manufacturer of high-quality nickel alloys and was previously a division of Thyssenkrupp AG (TKA.XE) before it was taken over by Lindsay Goldberg in 2015.

The company has six production facilities in Germany and two in the U.S., according to its website.
