Termination of share purchase agreement..
13/04-2018 17:53:10: (BERGEN) Bergen Group ASA: termination of share purchase agreement with VITEK AS
Reference is made to a stock exchange announcement disclosed 28 February 2018,
informing about Bergen Group ASA (Buyer) and Tertnes Holding (Seller) having
entered into a Share Purchase Agreement (SPA) for the acquisition of the company
Vitek AS and its wholly-owned subsidiary Vitek Miljø AS.
The parties have not reached the necessary agreement on elements deemed
necessary in order to finalize a transaction acceptable for both parties. It is
therefore decided to terminate the SPA.
CEO Torgeir Nærø in Bergen Group ASA regrets that the parties failed to achieve
the goal of a transaction.
"Bergen Group recognizes VITEK as a company with a strong position in a
future-oriented market with large potential for further profitable growth. We
still see potential synergies that may be relevant for market based
collaboration, "says Nærø.

Syns det er greit at man kutter ut handelen når ting prises ut av rammene man hadde. Man skal ikke på død å liv vokse. Olje næringen vokser videre, samme med vindmølleparkene der ute i havgapet. Kontrakten med ferjeselskapet har begynt å rulle, og ny dokk med omsetning er anskaffet.
Ting ruller videre.
Ting ruller videre.
