Outokumpu divests its pipe plant

Outokumpu is to divest its pipe plant in Wildwood, Florida, US to Ta Chen International Inc., a master distributor in the US and part of a Taiwan-based listed company Ta Chen Stainless Pipe, Ltd.

The divestment serves Outokumpu’s financial and operational interests, allowing Outokumpu to focus on its stainless steel production in the US in Calvert, Alabama and Richburg, South Carolina. Outokumpu’s other operations in the US remain unchanged.

The cash consideration of the transaction is approximately EUR 25 million, depending on the amount of the net working capital at the closing. The transaction reduces Outokumpu’s net debt by approximately the same amount.
