Fiskars plans to divest its European plastic pottery business

Fiskars Corporation has entered into an agreement to divest its European Ebertsankey plastics pottery business to Good(s) Factory BV, a member of the Elho Group, European market leader in synthetic pottery and related products.

Fiskars Group continuously simplifies structures and increases focus on selected businesses and brands. This divestment, subject to customary closing conditions, will allow Fiskars to continue to strengthen its focus in its core businesses and drive the company forward as an integrated consumer goods company.

The sale is not expected to have a significant impact on Fiskars Corporation’s financial position or result during 2016.

Elho Group is a family-owned company with over 50 years of experience in making synthetic pottery and related products, and is well positioned to further invest in the Ebertsankey brand and business to bring value to customers and consumers. It is the intention of Fiskars Corporation and Elho Group to complete the transaction and transfer the business before the end of the year 2016.
