Neles Corporation comments on Valmet Corporation's merger proposal

10/12/2020 | 02:31am EST

Neles Corporation Stock Exchange Release 12 October 2020 at 9:30 a.m.

Neles Corporation ("Neles") refers to the stock exchange release published by it on 29 September 2020 regarding Valmet Corporation's ("Valmet") proposal to Neles' Board of Directors to start discussions on a potential merger (the "Proposal"). The Board of Directors of Neles has carefully assessed the Proposal and, taking into account that the public tender offer by Alfa Laval AB (publ) (the "Tender Offer") is expected to expire on 22 October 2020, has urgently sought clarifying information on the Proposal. However, as the Board of Directors of Neles has not received requisite information, it cannot confirm that Valmet's proposal could be in the best interest of shareholders when compared with the currently ongoing Tender Offer. Valmet has not provided e.g. an indicative proposal for an exchange ratio for the merger. As Valmet's approach does not enable a meaningful comparison of the Proposal with the Tender Offer made at attractive valuation fully in cash, the recommendation by the Board of Directors of Neles published on 12 August 2020 regarding the Tender Offer made by Alfa Laval remains in place.

Board members Niko Pakalén and Petter Söderström have not participated in the decision-making by the Board regarding Valmet's Proposal.

Jukka Moisio, Chair of the Board of Directors of Neles Corporation:

"Neles' Board continues to recommend that the company's shareholders accept the public cash tender offer by Alfa Laval. At the end of September, Valmet made a proposal to Neles' Board on a merger between Valmet and Neles. Since then, we've worked tirelessly in accordance with our duty of care and duty of loyalty under the Companies Act to build a dialogue and to clarify Valmet's approach. Despite our efforts, there is no concrete proposal from Valmet's Board of Directors available to Neles which we could fairly assess from the perspective of Neles' shareholders. Naturally, the current situation has no impact on Neles' daily operations, which continue as usual in this fine company."
