- increased leverage of holding company management team with deep functional expertise at all levels (strategic decision making and implementation, business development, R&D, supply chain management and organizational development)
- Increased financial strength
- Administrative simplification
- Greater operational risk diversity
Prior to this operation, the Company owned, directly or through its subsidiary Surongo America, 17,8% in Noël Group, 18,3% in Nomacorc and a USD 3 millions Nomacorc convertible bond. In addition, the company bought Nomacorc shares for USD 0,6 million prior to the operation.
