Lindab International AB (publ): Lindab assesses strategic alternatives for its non-ventilation related businesses
As communicated earlier, the Board of Lindab has decided to accelerate the strategy with a clearer focus on the ventilation business. As a result, the Board has decided to assess structural alternatives, including a potential divestment, of its non-ventilation related businesses. The non-ventilation related businesses include the Building Systems segment (representing 11% of 2016 sales) and other construction-related businesses with limited strategic value for the ventilation business. In total, the aforementioned businesses under review are estimated to represent approximately 30% of Lindab Group sales.
To support in this review process, Lindab has appointed SEB Corporate Finance as financial advisor.
