Sistema completes transaction to become shareholder of pharmaceutical businesses Sintez and Biocom


Moscow, 8 August 2019 - Sistema PJSFC ("Sistema") (LSE: SSA, MOEX: AFKS), a publicly traded diversified Russian holding company, announces that it has completed the acquisition, together with a financial partner, of a 46.5% equity stake in Sintez Kurganskoe Medical Products Company ("Sintez") and a 75.1% equity stake in Biocom, through holding company Sinocom Investments Limited ("Sinocom"), from investment firm Marathon Group for a consideration of RUB 11.8 billion.


The 46.5% stake in Sintez was acquired by Sinocom for RUB 8.2 billion in a transaction financed jointly by Sistema and a financial partner. Subsequently, in order to combine the businesses, newly acquired Sintez purchased a 75.1% stake in Biocom from Sinocom for RUB 3.6 billion. The purchase of Biocom shares was funded with Sintez's own capital and funds borrowed by Sintez. The companies have complementary portfolios in terms of product types, have collaborated in the area of sales for many years, and are managed by a single executive team. The consolidation of the assets into Sintez will capture existing synergies and support the further growth of shareholder value.

HELMA Eigenheimbau: Klarer Kauf

Die HELMA Eigenheimbau hat mit dem Zugang weiterer Ferienimmobilienprojekte das potenzielle Umsatzvolumen um 150 Mio. € gesteigert. Ohnehin verfügt die Gesellschaft über einen umfangreichen Grundstücksbestand für das Bauträgergeschäft, womit in den kommenden Geschäftsjahren Umsätze in Höhe von über 1,4 Mrd. € realisiert werden könnten. Damit dürften unsere Schätzungen, in denen wir ein nachhaltiges Überschreiten der Umsatzmarke von 300 Mio. € annehmen, gut unterfüttert sein. Bei einem Kursziel von 65,00 € ist die HELMA-Aktie ein klarer Kauf.
