Group profit for the first quarter – the three months to the end of June – was in line with expectations and, as expected, well ahead of the previous year.
The company also announced two acquisitions: Stampede Global Holdings, a specialist distributor of professional audio-visual products and solutions, and Kondor, a provider of category management services for audio and mobile accessory products to the retail channel in the UK and Continental Europe.
The company was being coy about the prices paid but said the combined initial enterprise value of Stampede and Kondor is around £110mln.
DCC expects the acquisitions to generate a return on capital employed of roughly 15% in the first full year of ownership.
"The acquisition of Stampede significantly strengthens DCC Technology's position in the attractive and growing Pro AV market and also provides DCC Technology with a platform for growth and development in North America,” said Donal Murphy, the chief executive officer of DCC.
“The acquisition of Kondor further enhances both DCC Technology's service proposition and its market position, where it has grown to be a leading service provider to the retail channel in Europe," he added.
Shares in DCC were up 4.3% at 7,195p.
