Metal Trade Comax Group acquires Oetinger Aluminium Group

Dear Sir or Madam,

on December 27, 2017, Czech Metal Trade Comax Group has acquired all shares in Oetinger Aluminium Group from investors advised by Orlando Management AG, Munich.

Metal Trade Comax is a Czech metals processing conglomerate headquartered in Velvary, just north of Prague. The company offers coil coating, profiling and slitting activities for hot-dip galvanized steel and aluminium sheet metal with a capacity of approx. 200,000 tons/year. In its metallurgy segment, Metal Trade Comax operates aluminium recycling facilities for secondary aluminium casting alloys. These activities, with a capacity of approx. 30,000 tons/year, will be combined with the activities of the Oetinger Aluminium Group.

The acquisition creates one of Europe's leading aluminum recycling groups with a total capacity of approx. 220,000 tons/year and a very well-diversified geographical profile. Both companies will continue their current business activities and intensify their cooperation in the weeks and months to come.

Under the new ownership, the Oetinger Aluminium Group will continue to operate as before. Oetinger's Management will stay unchanged, as well as all your contacts, account details and all legal agreements. We are convinced that the new strategic ownership will further strengthen our position in the aluminium recycling market and that we can offer an even larger range of products and services to our customers.

The Oetinger Group sees light on the horizon again in 2014. The remelter of aluminium scrap had to file for bankruptcy in July 2013, but even before the end of the year a strategic investor was found. In addition to margin pressure and low remelt ingot prices, the then high bank liabilities from the legacy of the Konzelmann acquisition had burdened the company. Roland Keller, Managing Director responsible for Metals Purchasing and Sales at Oetinger, set out the future priorities in conversation with NE-Metalle Monitor.
