SGL Group have completed the acquisition of a 10.8% stake in the listed Portuguese company Fisipefrom the previous shareholder, Quimifértil
As a result SGL Group now holds a 97% stake in the company. The transaction was approved by the Portuguese securities commission. The fact that SGL Group now holds a 97% stake means that the conditions for a squeeze-out procedure have now been achieved. Once the takeovers are complete, Fisipe will be wholly-owned by SGL Group.

The purchase price amounted to around €25 million and is one of the benchmarks applied by the authorities with respect to the compulsory offer.
