Synergies are expected especially in the product range and market access, in the medium term also in the areas of development and production, with positive effects on the results.

In connection with financing this transaction, Jetter will increase its share capital from authorised capital . Bucher Industries AG, which is holding 20% in Jetter, shall subscribe a further 143,000 shares at EUR 14.00 per share, bringing their shareholding in Jetter to 23% and procuring EUR 2 Mio. for Jetter.
