Cencorps Chinese subsidiary Savcor Face (Beijing) Technologies Co., Ltd has negotiated with real-estate investors on a sale-leaseback transaction regarding the plant building in Beijing. The transaction has not yet been finalized, but the company expects it to be realized during January 2012. The sales price is intended to be used to repay to Bank of China a loan of RMB 40 million, i.e. some EUR 4.9 million. Some RMB 13 million, i.e. EUR 1.6 million is due on 31 December 2011 and some RMB 15 million, i.e. EUR 1.8 million in November 2012.
