‘We are delighted that Intex is joining the IRIS family,’ said Iris chief
executive Martin Leuw. ‘The business and cultural fit between IRIS and Intex is
entirely complementary and we will benefit considerably from their extensive

Capital, is looking at several more purchases in the near future to complement
its Iris’ offerings.
