TRELLEBORG: Trelleborg's acquisition of CGS Holding finalized

Trelleborg has finalized the acquisition of CGS Holding a.s. - a
privately-owned company with leading positions in agricultural,
industrial and specialty tires as well as engineered polymer
solutions. The total cash consideration amounted to approximately SEK
10.9 billion on a cash and debt-free basis. CGS is headquartered in
the Czech Republic and generated sales of approximately SEK 5.6
billion in 2015 with an operating margin of 16.5 percent.

"It is highly gratifying to welcome CGS to the Trelleborg Group. The
company has long been on our list of interesting acquisitions. The
acquisition means that Trelleborg will almost double its sales in
agricultural tires, strengthen its leading position in industrial
tires and add new positions in complementary specialty tires
segments. CGS's engineered polymer solutions add new interesting
positions as well as strengthen Trelleborg's existing leading
positions in several of the Group's current business areas," says
Peter Nilsson, President and CEO of Trelleborg.

CGS Holding includes the businesses Mitas, Rubena and Savatech. Mitas
accounts for approximately two-thirds of group sales and has strong
mid-market specialty tires brands with a particularly strong position
within agricultural tires. The offering of specialty tires is
complemented by Rubena's and Savatech's niche engineered polymer
solutions businesses, including seals, sealing profiles, specialty
molded products, printing blankets and other engineered fabrics.

"We are convinced the agricultural market will recover, enabling us to
benefit from an attractive footprint when it does. Accordingly, we
consider the purchase consideration to be attractive considering the
expected synergies and the future recovery of the agricultural
market," concludes Peter Nilsson.

Mitas will be integrated into the Trelleborg Wheel Systems business
area. During transition, other operations will be independent from
Trelleborg's existing operations before being gradually integrated
into current business areas.

Following the acquisition, Trelleborg will have sales of about SEK 30
billion, with about 23,000 employees in 47 countries.

The transaction will be consolidated from May 31, 2016. Non-recurring
costs of approximately SEK 70 million, related to the acquisition,
will be charged to the second quarter of 2016. Of this amount, about
SEK 50 million will be charged against reported operating income and
about 20 million will be charged to net financial items. No PPA
effects are included in the above amounts.

The press release regarding the acquisition was published on November
9, 2015.
