Steinhoff International Holdings N.V. ("Steinhoff" or the "Company" and with its subsidiaries, the "Group").
On 28 March 2019, Steinhoff announced that it had reached in-principle agreement to dispose of a 74.9% interest in Unitrans Motor Holdings Proprietary Limited ("Unitrans"), its South African motor retail business, to CFAO, with the balance of 25.1% to be disposed of at a later date as part of a Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment transaction. Steinhoff is pleased to announce that the parties have today issued a joint announcement updating shareholders on the progress of the Unitrans transaction.
The full text of the joint announcement follows below.
CFAO Group and Steinhoff finalise Unitrans Motors Group deal, and have jointly selected with Unitrans, Kapela Holdings as its Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment partner (BBBEE)
Kapela Holdings, a South African majority black owned investment group, has executed a Share Purchase Agreement with Steinhoff for the acquisition of the remaining 25.1% interest in Unitrans share capital. The closing of this second transaction is expected in the upcoming weeks.
In a joint statement published today, Richard BIELLE, CFAO's Chairman and CEO, and Brynn STEPHENSON, Unitrans' CEO declared: "It is now time for Unitrans Motors Group to enter a new phase of its development, reinforcing its strategic position as one of the key leaders of the automotive retail sector. We believe there are strong mutual benefits for our two groups and we are looking forward to engage this new exciting period for our employees".
Louis du PREEZ, Steinhoff Group CEO said "Unitrans has very different business characteristics from the remainder of our retail portfolio. This transaction also provided the opportunity for Steinhoff to facilitate BBBEE which has been a strategic objective of the Board. Closing of the transaction is another successful step as we continue to simplify the Group's portfolio and deleverage our balance sheet. We are pleased that the transaction has been finalised and wish CFAO, the Unitrans management team and Kapela every success with the business."
