Carner advises Ahlsell in divesting non-core subsidiary in Finland

In Short

Carner advises Ahlsell in divestment of non-core subsidiary in Finland. The non-core subsidiary was not in-line with Ahlsell’s current product and sales channel strategies. The unit achieved revenues of approximately 10 M€ in 2020.

”The divestment of the subsidiary is in line with Ahlsell Oy’s strategy to increase the focus on its core business. Carner ran a highly efficient sales process from start to finish and we are very happy with the outcome. The Carner team did an outstanding job in reaching a deal with a buyer that understands the full potential of the business and that we feel confident will provide a great new home for the subsidiary and its employees.“ -Lennart Sjöblom, Director M&A at Ahlsell Group
