Publication of Inside Information in Accordance with Article 17 MAR.
Hamburg, July 30, 2021.
Muehlhan AG (Open Market; ISIN DE000A0KD0F7; WKN A0KD0F) hereby announces that it has today concluded a purchase agreement with Brand Energy & Infrastructure Services GmbH for the sale of all shares in Gerüstbau Muehlhan GmbH. The agreed purchase price (enterprise value) is approximately €28 million.
With Brand Energy & Infrastructure Services GmbH, a buyer has been found who intends to further expand its strategic position in European scaffolding projects through the acquisition of Gerüstbau Muehlhan GmbH. The conclusion of the purchase agreement remains, in particular, subject to clearance by the Bundeskartellamt (German Federal Cartel Office) as part of the statutory merger control proceedings.
Without the sale, the Executive Board and Supervisory Board of Muehlhan AG expect year-over-year revenues and earnings from operations to recover in 2021, as long as the coronavirus restrictions that have currently been largely lifted are not reintroduced in the short term. The revenues (€295.3 million) and results (EBIT of €12.4 million) of 2019 will not be achieved. The deconsolidation result from the sale of Gerüstbau Muehlhan GmbH of approximately €15 million to €20 million will be added to the operating result. The deconsolidation result is expected to be realized in the second half of 2021.
