The Ambassador of Sweden to Ukraine Martin Hagström visited Grain Alliance in Poltava region

On November 13, the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Sweden to Ukraine Martin Hagström made a working visit to Poltava region for the first time. In particular, the ambassador visited the grain facilities of Grain Alliance (Baryshivska Grain Company) and met with the Chairman of the Board of Directors of the company, Mr. Johan Damne. The enterprise applies energy-saving programs on grain drying, which is introduced into to Ukraine. For instance, the company uses an Italian dryer by BONFANTI that works on alternative fuels such as grain processing waste and sunflower husk pellets.

Baryshivska grain company has been operating for over 20 years in Ukraine. About 60 million dollars have been invested into the company development since the advent of the Swedish ownership. Today Baryshivska Grain Company is an agricultural producer with 100% of Swedish investments. The main policy and strategy of the enterprise is to process the European culture into the subject of organization of labor, both in the economy and in production, and in attitude to the land and to the human. Therefore, our strategy is intended for long-term cooperation with communities. Grain Alliance is a member of a group that has been steadily and confidently working in Sweden for 130 years. I think, such long-term cooperation will have a positive result in Ukraine as well, – says the executive director of Grain Alliance Yevgeniy Radovenyuk.

Our activity has been based on the principles of social and ecological responsibility for a long period of time. We have been investors in Ukraine for 12 years , and we look forward to further fruitful cooperation,-confirms the above-said the chairman of the Board of Directors of Grain Alliance Johan Damne.

Also those present at the meeting were able to see and evaluate the cultivation of soil on a corn stub with the high-tech cultivator TopDown by Swedish company Väderstad. Grain Alliance has acquired 3 such cultivators and 2 Tempo seeders. New aggregates will be released in the field the following spring. Grain Alliance fruitfully cooperates with Väderstad in the matters of quality soil cultivation and sowing of grain.

Besides, the Ambassador and the chairman of the Board of Directors of Grain Alliance discussed the problems and prospects for doing business with Swedish investments in Ukraine.

Today I saw the work of Grain Alliance. The embassy is working at expanding economic contacts between Sweden and Ukraine. The most important thing for new investors and businessmen is to see how companies with Swedish investments are working in Ukraine. I’m impressed: Grain Alliance is a large Swedish investment with modern technologies, environmental approaches to production, that are similar to those approaches in Sweden. The company investigated various aggregates at the opened tender and identified that the best are those of the Swedish company, which is also pleasing, -summed up Martin Hagström, the Ambassador of Sweden to Ukraine.

Catella divests Wealth Management operations in Luxembourg to VP Bank

Catella Bank S.A., a fully owned subsidiary of Catella AB (publ), has entered an asset transfer-agreement to divest its Wealth Management operations in Luxembourg to VP Bank (Luxembourg) SA as part of the previously announced strategic review, for approximately SEK 110 Million.
The Swedish Wealth Management division and the Card Issuing-operations is not part of this transaction and the strategic review is ongoing with regards to these two operations. As previously announced Catella aim to exit the consolidated situation due to the extensive regulatory framework and inefficient capital-structure it entails. Divesting the Wealth Management operations in Luxembourg is a step in that direction and an important part of this process has been to find a counterparty who can understand and meet our customers’ demands. Catella has evaluated various options and found the optimal conditions, for customers and employees, in VP Bank who is a partner and employer with a strong and long-term offering.

VP Bank has the ambition and capacity to further develop the private banking offer to Catella’s wealth management-customers in Luxembourg. Catella and VP Bank will also enter a distribution partnership to develop and provide products for the Nordic and European markets. This provides a great opportunity for Catella to distribute alternative products through a large and credible partner. The transaction is also an important step towards a more efficient capital-structure and less extensive regulatory framework,” Knut Pedersen, CEO of Catella Group, comments.

“The transaction with Catella Bank S.A. underscores the growth ambitions of VP Bank Group and contributes significantly to the expansion of our activities in the Scandinavian market. Due to the international orientation, strong balance sheet and comparable ownership of VP Bank, we have ideal conditions to rapidly integrate the acquired customers and employees”, states Alfred W. Moeckli, CEO of VP Bank Group.

The balance sheet total of Catella Group will decrease by approximately SEK 2 Billion as both assets and liabilities will be transferred to VP Bank due to the transaction which is structured as an asset deal. The consideration is depending on certain conditions related to assets under management upon closing. The transaction is expected to be completed the first of February 2019.
