Suominen Corporation’s stock exchange release on March 19, 2021 at 1:30 p.m. (EET)
Suominen divested its Flexibles business in 2014 to Lonsdale Capital Partners LLP and the Flexibles management team who continued the business under the name Amerplast. Suominen retained a minority shareholding of 19.9 percent after the divestment.
Suominen has on March 19, 2021 sold its minority share to Hanmere Polythene Ltd, a portfolio company of the UK private equity group Chiltern Capital. The parties have agreed that the transaction price shall remain confidential. The transaction will positively impact Suominen’s 2021 financial items by EUR 3.7 million and cash flow by EUR 11.6 million, consisting of a gain on the sale of the shares and the repayment of loans granted in the 2014 divestment as well as a reversal of credit loss provisions associated with the loans. The transaction will not have a material effect on Suominen’s result going forward.
