Divestment of Contex

Carnegie acted as exclusive financial adviser to Ratos

Carnegie acted as exclusive financial adviser to Ratos in the divestment of the Danish company Contex to Procuritas. Contex is the world's largest manufacturer of large-format 2D scanners with sales in more than 90 countries. Contex sells both under its own brand and as an OEM supplier to HP, among others.

In 2011 Contex A/S's sales totalled USD 46.1m and operating profit (EBITA) adjusted for costs affecting comparability amounted to USD 4.9m. Ratos acquired Contex Group in 2007 when the company consisted of three subsidiaries: Contex A/S, Z Corporation and Vidar Systems. The two latter companies were sold to the American company 3D Systems in 2011.
