STOCKHOLM--()--Regulatory News:

Dustin Group AB (STO:DUST)  

Dustin has decided to consolidate its financial offering to the corporate market in all Nordic countries through a partnership agreement with De Lage Landen Finans AB (DLL). In conjunction with this, the lease portfolio in Dustin’s financing activities will be divested to DLL. The sales price of the lease portfolio is estimated to correspond to the carrying amount. The transaction is scheduled to be finalised on 2 November 2015.

- The partnership agreement and divestment will enable us to offer an attractive financing offering to all our corporate customers in the Nordic region, and to fully focus on our core operation, says Georgi Ganev, CEO of Dustin.

At the end of September, the total contract stock of the leasing operation amounted to approximately SEK 260 million, the financial commitment to approximately SEK 180 million and accounts receivable to about SEK 30 million. The sales value of the lease portfolio is estimated to correspond to the carrying amount. The transaction is scheduled to be completed on 2 November 2015.   

At the same time, Dustin will sign a Nordic partnership agreement with the De Lage Landen Finans AB (DLL) that will initially extend for three years. Dustin will thus be able to continuously receive future income from the existing portfolio and part of the income from newly signed contracts.
