Divestment of Urbanista for MEUR 25

STRAX AB has, through its subsidiary STRAX Holding GmbH, divested its ownership of Urbanista AB for at total consideration of the equivalent of approximately MEUR 25 to P Capital Partners AB (“PCP”), with a potential future upside for the Group.
STRAX acquired Urbanista in 2014 and has since developed Urbanista to become a brand represented globally with a very relevant and solid product portfolio.
Urbanista has had a strong development the last couple of years but have been constrained because of financial challenges of the STRAX Group in general. Under new ownership Urbanista will have the chance to reach its full potential.
The consideration of approximately MEUR 25 will be fully assigned towards the outstanding loans under the facility agreement with PCP. The sale will also lead to a capital gain of approximately MEUR 15.
