PARIS (Agefi-Dow Jones) - Building materials maker Saint-Gobain on Friday announced an agreement with the Burkard and Sika family to de facto relinquish control of the Swiss company and resolve a long-standing conflict. four years. In 2014, Saint-Gobain announced its intention to acquire for 2.75 billion Swiss francs the Sika shares of Schenker-Winkler, the holding company of the Burkard family, holding 16% of the capital and 52% of the voting rights of Sika. This operation was contested by the majority of Sika's board of directors, who tried by all means to defeat it. The agreement announced Friday finally puts an end to all disputes between actors of this long serial, said Saint-Gobain. The scheme is rather complex: Saint-Gobain has bought the Schenker-Winkler holding for 3.22 billion Swiss francs (2.7 billion euros), 500 million more than in the agreement originally passed in October 2014, to reflect Sika's appreciation on the stock market. In the process, Saint-Gobain transferred to Sika 6.97% of its own capital, via the stake acquired via Schenker-Winkler. This sale, which represents 23.7% of the voting rights of Sika, was completed for a total amount of 2.08 billion Swiss francs, which includes a premium of 795 million francs compared to the May 4th share price. . Following this transaction, Sika will convene an extraordinary general meeting on June 11, during which it will propose to cancel the 6.97% of the capital acquired from Saint-Gobain. It will also propose the abolition of the statutory limitation of 5% transfer of securities and the statutory opt-out clause, which in Switzerland allows a shareholder who acquires more than one-third of the voting rights of a company not to make a public tender offer on the rest of the capital. Above all, Sika will offer to convert all its shares into a single share class (called "one share, one vote") with a conversion ratio of 1:60 for bearer shares. Saint-Gobain and Schenker-Winkler pledged to vote in favor of all of these resolutions, with representatives of the Burkard family, Urs Burkard, Jürgen Tinggren and Willi Leimer having also resigned from the board of directors. At the end of this extraordinary general meeting, Saint-Gobain will hold 10.75% of Sika's share capital and voting rights. The two groups agreed that Saint-Gobain would keep this participation for at least two years without being able to exceed a ceiling of 10.75% for four years. This ceiling will then be raised to 12.875% for the next two years. "In the event that a transfer of shares would be considered by Saint-Gobain, the latter should propose them to Sika in priority, within the limit of 10.75% of the capital of Sika", have also indicated the two groups in a communicated. Sika and Saint-Gobain will also deepen their commercial relations "that they will seek to expand in areas that are mutually beneficial". "This is a very positive outcome, both from a financial and a strategic point of view, we have a positive net income of more than 600 million euros for our shareholders, we are also keeping a minority stake in a good company and we are going to increase collaboration between the two groups, "said Pierre-André de Chalendar, CEO of Saint-Gobain, quoted in a statement. -Julien Marion, Agefi-DowJones; 01 41 27 47 94; ed: VLV Agefi-Dow Jones The financial newswire (END) Dow Jones Newswires May 11, 2018 02:09 ET (06:09 GMT)

19/01/2018 | 6:48 p.m. Zurich (awp) - The recent sharp rise in the share price of Sika could help to find a solution to the dispute over the sale of the company. In an interview with Finanz und Wirtschaft, managing director Paul Schuler believes that this opens up an opportunity for all three parties to win, and that all needs are covered, "perhaps not always 100%". The heiress family Burkard holds the majority of the voting rights via the family holding company Schenker-Winkler Holding (SWH) and wants to sell to the French group Saint-Gobain. In the beginning, the French offer represented a premium of 80% compared to the course of the time. Currently, the share price is close to 20% above the amount offered. According to Schuler, the solution could be that Sika remains independent, that the Burkard family sells its stake and earns a good price. "This is the goal we pursue." The Board is ready to make an offer to the Burkard family to sell their stake in the company. The investors with whom the ECO speaks no longer believe that the transaction will end up as planned for a buyout by Saint-Gobain. In spite of that the action integrates a risk of 10 to 15%, without which the course would be even higher. The goal is to take the single action, which would make even higher the course, according to the boss. GEOGRAPHICAL EXPANSION TOUCHES ITS LIMITS Mr. Schuler also notes that the feud with the Burkard family and Saint-Gobain has virtually no influence on business. "Our results show that operational business is very little affected." The management and some other collaborators are naturally always occupied by the file, but this remains in the limits. Without this problem however, Sika would grow even faster. Geographically, the ECO believes that Sika's expansion is slowly reaching its limits. The group is active in a hundred countries. However, there is still enough potential to gain market share and grow further. In recent months and years, the group has made several acquisitions of small and large size. On the question of optimal size, Schuler notes that he is rather cautious with small companies that bring in only a few million dollars in sales. The good size is between 20 and 100 million CHF of turnover, but it can also be bigger. There are some companies that would fit well with Sika, he concluded. uh / cf / rp

In general, UBS welcomes Vinci's 'successful' investment strategy, including redeployment to airports. "Despite the significant competition from financial and industrial players, Vinci has proven that it is able to identify files where it is possible to generate value," says a note.
