Elanders will have a positive impact on the result of some MSEK 50 from merger of associated company
Press Release from Elanders AB (publ) 2022-06-20
In 2018, Elanders’ subsidiary, LGI Logistics Group International GmbH, entered into a strategic partnership with Addeco, whereby LGI divested 51 percent of the shares in its staffing firm LOGworks to Adecco Group Deutschland. Adecco is now planning to merge the operations in two of the companies they are majority owners of, LOGworks and ProServ. In connection with the merger LOGworks will become part of ProServ. Elanders will have a 14 percent ownership in the merged company. The Michelin Group, which was previously a minority owner in ProServ, will have a 35 percent ownership and Adecco 51 percent.
Now when the merger takes place, it will have a positive effect on the Elanders Group’s operating result in the second quarter of approximately MSEK 50. This effect will occur when Elanders’ shares in the merged company are revalued from book value to fair value in connection with the transaction. The transaction will, however, not have any effect on cash flow.
