Sale of Arjowiggins Security BV


Press release
Boulogne-Billancourt, 21 July 2017
 

Sale of Arjowiggins Security BV to Oberthur Fiduciaire

Publication of half-yearly results on 13 September 2017


Arjowiggins Security has entered into a binding agreement with Oberthur Fiduciaire concerning the sale of its subsidiary, Arjowiggins Security BV, covering the VHP mill in Apeldoorn (the Netherlands) and the intellectual property rights related to the production of banknote paper, for a gross amount of €22 million, (plus an earn-out). The transaction will complete on 31 July 2017.

Arjowiggins also sold the Charavines site to Fregata Hygiène in late June. This transaction will have no impact on either Arjowiggins' results or financial position.

Furthermore, in light of regulatory requirements concerning the planned issue of high-yield notes to refinance its subsidiary, Antalis International, Sequana will publish its half-yearly results on 13 September 2017.
