(“CFT”) announces the closing of the acquisition of an interest equal to 25% of the share capital of its subsidiary ADR S.r.l., with registered office in Sala Baganza (PR) (“ADR”). Following the acquisition of said participation, CFT – which already held a stake equal to 75% of the capital of the company – has become the owner of the whole corporate capital of ADR.

The consideration for the acquisition of the stake is equal to Euro 580,000.00, plus applicable taxes. The payment of the consideration is regulated as follows: Euro 380,000.00 have been paid by CFT to the seller at the date hereof, while the remaining amount, equal to Euro 200,000.00, will be paid by CFT to the seller by the end of the twelfth month from the date hereof.

Alessandro Merusi, CEO of the CFT group stated: “The acquisition of ADR’s whole share capital is part of the integration and rationalization strategy of subsidiaries’ activities in the CFT group. This operation, as well as the spinoff of some activities from the subsidiary Levati, aims at merging all the manufacturing activities of the Group in one legal entity in order to reduce costs and to make their processes and operational structures more efficient while making them independent and, therefore, able to serve in a competitive way both the companies belonging to the CFT group and third parties.”
