Ferronordic postpones AGM to June 25
The outbreak of COVID-19 has so far had relatively limited impact on Ferronordic’s business and financial position. Customer demand in Russia and Kazakhstan has not been significantly impacted. However, although all workshops in Germany are operating, there has recently been a decline in demand in Germany. Demand in Russia and Kazakhstan may also be negatively affected. Further, as previously announced, the Volvo Group has closed down most of its production sites, causing significant disturbance to Ferronordic’s supply of products to sell to its customers. As a result of the increased uncertainty, Ferronordic is taking measures to reduce costs and to strengthen its financial position. Given the extraordinary uncertainty and the rapidly changing business environment, the Board has considered it in the Company’s and its stakeholders’ interest to allow more time to evaluate the Board’s dividend proposal to the AGM. The Board has therefore decided to postpone the AGM for 2020 until 25 June 2020. The Board’s revised dividend proposal will be presented as soon as possible, and no later than in the AGM notice.

Ferronordic sells its Russian business
Ferronordic has divested its Russian business. The purchase price corresponds to SEK* 1,320m. Approx. SEK 230m of this amount has been used by Ferronordic AB to repay debt to the sold Russian subsidiaries. The remaining part of the purchase price has been received in euro on Ferronordic’s account in Austria. For the Group, the divestment thus entails a cash inflow of approx. SEK 1,090m. Ferronordic’s other operations in Germany and Kazakhstan are not directly affected by the transaction.
