Hexagon Composites ASA: Hexagon Raufoss restructures the operating model

Hexagon Composites' wholly-owned subsidiary Hexagon Raufoss, restructures its
operating model to achieve profitable operations.
As a result of prolonged weak profitability, the decision has been taken to
implement a restructuring and downsizing process in Hexagon Raufoss. The
company has terminated all its employee contracts and has implemented a
modified operating model where operational services will be performed by its
sister company Hexagon Ragasco. The restructuring includes workforce
reductions through natural retirements, internal transfers and lay-offs.
Eight employees have found other positions outside the Group, eleven
employees will be offered employment in sister company, while 14 employees
have been laid-off. Employee representatives have been consulted throughout
the restructuring process.

"Given the necessity to implement the restructuring process the selected
operating model provides the best basis for healthy continuing operations,
"says Managing Director Ragnar Holthe at Hexagon Raufoss. "This is a
challenging situation for the company and our employees, and we regret that
good employees will have to leave the company."

Hexagon Raufoss, which is located in Raufoss, develops and manufactures fuel
tanks for gas-powered cars.
