Nordic Paper enters into agreement to sell minority shareholding in Åmotfors Energi AB
At the paper mill in Åmotfors, Nordic Paper manufactures highly specialized kraft papers that are used in a number of different areas, primarily within industrial applications with high demands on paper performance. In a plant adjacent to the paper mill, Åmotfors Energi AB operates an incinerator delivering steam, hot water and electricity to the paper mill and to other external customers. Nordic Paper has been a minority shareholder of Åmotfors Energi AB since the company was formed in 2008.
Nevel is a utility infrastructure company offering industrial and municipal solutions in Sweden, Finland and Estonia. Nevel operates more than 130 energy production plants and about 40 district heating networks. The company has an annual turnover of EUR 100m and 150 employees.
"We are very pleased to have reached this agreement with Nevel. With their broad experience in utility infrastructure, they are a perfect partner for further development of the cooperation between Åmotfors Energi AB and Nordic Paper. With the new supply agreement, we ensure long term stable energy supply to our kraft paper production in Åmotfors and we have a joint ambition to cooperate for reducing the climate impact", says Anita Sjölander, CEO of Nordic Paper.
"This acquisition fits our strategy to develop sustainable energy and infrastructure solutions to industries and real estate. We are excited to become a long-term partner with Nordic Paper", says Thomas Luther, CEO of Nevel.
The capital gain of about SEK 40m will be reported in the accounts for the fourth quarter 2022 as a result from shareholding in associated companies.
