GROUPE STERIA : Sale of Steria Iberica
Groupe Steria announces that an agreement has been reached with AURELIUS for the sale of 100% of its Spanish subsidiary. The closing of the transaction is scheduled to occur in the next few weeks.
Paris, France, 22/10/2012 - Steria Iberica generated 2011 revenues of €42.2 million (2% of Group revenue) and an operating margin of €(3.7) million.
On an annual basis, the transaction should be accretive by 30 basis points in the operating margin rate.
From an accounting perspective, the sale would generate a non-recurring charge after tax of around €10 million in the 2012 financial year (without any impact on the expected net financial debt). Moreover, the activity will be excluded in 2012 from the current activity of the Group.
The agreement reached with AURELIUS does not modify the Group strategy in Europe and has been considered as the best way forward for Steria Iberica and its employees.
