Latvian Forest Company signs letter of intent with Svenska Cellulosa Aktiebolaget SCA with a view of selling the entire share capital of all its operating subsidiaries

Sale of the two subsidiaries, and thus indirectly the company’s total operations, is expected to be finalised around February 25, 2019, when the due diligence is completed.

The total sale price is estimated to 26 000 000 Euro, corresponding to the buyers estimate of the total value of the assets in the two daughter companies, mainly consisting of forest and agricultural properties. The final sale price amounts to the total value of the assets plus/minus the working capital of the daughter companies as per the day of admission, subject to any changes agreed by the parties in the share purchase agreement.

Since a sale of the shares in the two daughter companies indirectly means that the company’s entire operations will be disposed, the question of a sale of mentioned shares will be submitted to the shareholders on an extraordinary general meeting. The company board will call for an extraordinary general meeting as soon as a binding share purchase agreement has been signed, which will be conditional to the decision taken by the extraordinary general meeting and approval from the buyer’s board.
