On 12 March 2010 Selena FM SA finalised its agreement with Boryszew SA to acquire 100% stake in Przedsiębiorstwo Materiałów Izolacyjnych “Izolacja – Matizol” SA of Gorlice. The contract was finalised following positive decision of the President of the Competition and Consumer Protection Authority issued on 24 February 2010. As previously announced, the value of the deal is PLN 18.5 m.
The company’s strategy for 2010, which is geared towards development of Matizol, assumes adding the acquired entity’s products to the product range and distribution network of Selena, initially in the domestic market and then internationally. Also, as the Management Board of Selena FM S.A. resolved on 8 March 2010, the production facilities of Matizol will be upgraded and their production capacity will be increased.
