DGAP-News: Nemetschek SE / Key word(s): Disposal
- Value-generating investment: Sale of share of 22.4% leads to a significant one-off increase in earnings per share compared to the previous year
- Close collaboration between the Nemetschek brands and DocuWare continues
DocuWare solutions are successfully integrated in some of the brands of Nemetschek Group such as Nevaris and Crem Solutions. Following the sale of the interest, the close cooperation between DocuWare and the Nemetschek brands will continue.
The proceeds from the sale of the 22.4% share after the closing of the transaction will lead to a book profit, which will have a favorable impact on the 2019 earnings per share (EPS). In addition to the expected growth of the EPS as a result of the operating business, from today's perspective the sale will lead to an additional one-off rise in the EPS of about 40% compared to the previous year's figure.
The deal is expected to close over summer 2019, subject to receiving clearance from the relevant competition authorities in Germany and Austria and completion of the other customary closing conditions.
Patrik Heider, Executive Board Spokesman of Nemetschek SE: "We have made use of a market opportunity to divest ourselves of this interest in a value-driven manner. At the same time, it is ensured that we will continue to work closely together with DocuWare and our brands will also have access to the innovative solutions from DocuWare in the future."
