Schweizer reduces stake in SEC to 30%

The entry of WUS will strengthen SEC’s equity capital for the volume production of the embedding technology. The Schweizer embedding technology will thus be manufactured both at the plant in Schramberg and the plant in Jintan, a press release states.
The closing of the transaction (Closing) is expected to take place in three to four months. The purchase price for the shares in SEC to be transferred under the Share Transfer Agreement amounts to CNY 33,450,000 (EUR 4,5 million).
