The Schleuniger Group is now part of the Komax Group: the combination of Komax Holding AG and Schleuniger AG was completed on 30 August 2022. The Komax Group will analyze the post-merger situation in the coming months and develop a new strategy.
The combination of Komax Holding AG and Schleuniger AG was completed on 30 August 2022 along with the associated capital increase. The 1,283,333 newly issued registered shares were allocated to Metall Zug AG in exchange for 100% of the Schleuniger shares. The new shares will be listed on the SIX Swiss Exchange as of 31 August 2022, thus increasing the number of listed registered shares of Komax Holding AG to 5,133,333. Metall Zug AG, the former owner of Schleuniger AG, now holds a 25% stake in Komax Holding AG.
Capital contribution reserves stand at a good CHF 200 million
As a result of the combination, Komax’s capital contribution reserves have risen from CHF 0.8 million to a good CHF 200 million. In the next few years, this will give Komax the opportunity to distribute half of the dividend tax-free to Swiss residents who hold their shares as private assets.
Development of new strategy
Komax will now analyze the post-merger situation in detail and develop new targets and an associated strategy. In this context, Komax will define new mid-term financial targets, which are expected to be communicated during the second half of 2023.
