Divestment of Sergel to Marginalen now completed
The divestment of Sergel Group to Marginalen has today, June 30, 2017, been completed. The deal was announced in June 2016 and has since then been reviewed by relevant regulatory authorities, with the final approval granted on June 14, 2017.
Sergel which was Telia Company’s Nordic and Baltic credit management services and debt purchase company, was sold after an internal evaluation deemed the business being non-core. However, as Sergel’s services will remain to be of high importance to Telia Company, Sergel has in connection with the transaction entered into a new partnership agreement with Telia Company regarding the continued delivery of CMS, debt purchase and clearinghouse services by Sergel to Telia Company.
The divestment results in a reduction of the net debt for Telia Company of approximately SEK 2 billion and the effect on net income from the transaction is expected to be approximately SEK 1 billion.
