Sdiptech divests Aufzüge Friedl GmbH and ST Lift GmbH

Sdiptech AB (publ) has today entered into an agreement to divest its elevator business in Austria consisting of Aufzüge Friedl GmbH and ST Lift GmbH (together Aufzüge Friedl) to founder and minority owner Jürgen Friedl. The purchase price for Sdiptech's holding of 51 percent amounts to EUR 6 million on a cash and debt-free basis.

Sdiptech's Austrian elevator operations Aufzüge Friedl specialises in the renovation, modernisation and service of elevators in Vienna. The business units are part of Sdiptech's business area Property Technical Services and currently have annual sales of approximately EUR 8 million and an operating profit (EBIT) of approximately EUR 1 million, of which Sdiptech's share is 51 percent. The sale is conducted at an EV/EBIT multiple of approximately 12.

"The divestment is in line with Sdiptech’s set direction to concentrate growth efforts to the Water & Energy and Special Infrastructure Solutions business areas. After the transaction, Croatian Metus is Sdiptech's remaining elevator business. With a unique service offering to global elevator companies, a proprietary product and production and a local service business, Metus has a strong market position. Sdiptech therefore does not expect any further changes in the elevator business”, says Jakob Holm, CEO of Sdiptech.

The divestment is expected to be completed within 30 days.
