Huhtamaki divests its operations in Russia

Huhtamaki has sold its operations in Russia to Espetina Ltd. Espetina is a holding company owned by Alexander Govor and Iury Kushnerov. The transaction includes four manufacturing units in Russia, employing 724 people.

On April 14, 2022, Huhtamaki announced its intention to divest its operations in Russia. This followed an earlier decision to stop all investments in Russia at the outbreak of the invasion of Ukraine.

“We consider that the current evolution of the situation and the long-term outlook in Russia will prevent the realization of our growth strategy and long-term ambitions in the country. We are pleased to bring to a close the subsequent review of our strategic options in Russia. As part of the process, we conducted extensive due diligence to find the best possible buyer and future partner for our local employees – the safety and wellbeing of whom remain important to us. We feel that Espetina will be a good and committed owner for the business and the future of our employees”, says Charles Héaulmé, President and CEO, Huhtamaki.

The cash and debt free sales price is EUR 151 million. As a result of the sale, Huhtamaki expects to book a gain of approximately EUR 15 million in its third quarter. The presented figures are preliminary estimates which are affected by, among others, changes in RUB/EUR exchange rate. The sale is not expected to have a significant financial impact on Huhtamaki in 2022.

Telenor etablerer fiberselskap i Norge7.10.2022 08:55:29 CEST | Pressemelding

(Fornebu 07 september 2022) Telenor inngår en transaksjon som skal støtte fremtidige investeringer i Norges telekominfrastruktur. Tidligere i år påbegynte Telenor en prosess for å vurdere etableringen av et eierselskap for passiv fiberinfrastruktur, med en medinvestor i en minoritetsposisjon. Telenor har nå kommet til enighet om å selge 30 prosent av det nye fiberselskapet til et konsortium ledet av det globale investeringsselskapet KKR, som investerer gjennom sin kjerneinfrastrukturstrategi. Konsortiet inkluderer Oslo Pensjonsforsikring som medinvestor. Det nyetablerte selskapet er et datterselskap av Telenor og vil bli en del av det nye forretningsområdet Telenor Infrastruktur. Selskapet vil eie de passive elementene i det norske fibernettet. Dette omfatter omtrent 130.000 kilometer med kabler som leverer tjenester til omtrent 560.000 husstander. Eiendelene vil bli skilt ut fra Telenor Norge før transaksjonen sluttføres. Telenor Norge blir selskapets eneste kunde og alle operasjonell
