Sandvik targets Sandvik Materials Technology listing in Q2 or Q3 2022
The Sandvik Board of Directors has today confirmed its previous decision to proceed with the preparation to distribute Sandvik Materials Technology (SMT) to Sandvik’s shareholders and list the company’s shares on the Nasdaq Stockholm Exchange. The Board’s current target is to complete the listing on the Nasdaq Stockholm Exchange during the second or third quarter 2022, subject to approval by Sandvik’s shareholders. The intended distribution of shares is expected to meet the Lex Asea requirements.
“The internal separation of SMT is proceeding as planned and the previously communicated reasons for a distribution and listing remain relevant. We believe that both Sandvik and Sandvik Materials Technology can develop more favorably on their own”, says Johan Molin, Chairman of the Sandvik Board of Directors.
As previously communicated, The Board intends to formally propose the distribution and listing at a shareholders’ meeting next year.
