Cetis's single largest owner raises its stake to 79%


MSIN held a 75.19% stake in Cetis before publishing the takeover bid, as part of which it acquired 6,812 shares to raise its total number of shares to 157,183, the company says in today's Večer.

Initially, the company held a 65.86% stake, but then purchased another 9.32% stake from Kovinoplastika Lož.

The other major Cetis owners include Slovenian Sovereign Holding (SSH) with a 7.89% share, the state-owned KAD fund with 7.47% of stock and the company Optimus naložbe, which holds a 4.50% stake.

MSIN's moves are coordinated with the latter and the head of Optimus naložbe and one of its owners, Roman Žnidarič, is an executive director at Cetis.

MSIN and Optimus naložbe agreed that after the takeover, Optimus naložbe's share will rise to 5.65%.

Cetis has been classified as a portfolio investment by the state, which means that it is designated for sale.

In the first half of 2017, the latest period for which figures are available, the maker of Slovenian identification documents generated EUR 1.69m in net profit, down 16.6% year-on-year. Sales revenue dropped by 2.1% to EUR 29.21m.

On 14 February, Cetis traded at EUR 58.50 on the Ljubljana Stock Exchange.
