LEMMINKÄINEN CORPORATION PRESS RELEASE 24 JUNE 2014 AT 10:00 A.M.
LEMMINKÄINEN DIVESTS REMAINING LEMCON NETWORKS' BUSINESS OPERATIONS
Lemminkäinen and Cygate Oy, part of TeliaSonera Group, have signed a business purchase agreement covering Lemcon Networks’ IT services in Finland, including WLAN, corporate networks and network data security solutions. In connection with the transaction, five permanent and one fixed-term employee will join Cygate. The parties have agreed not to disclose the purchase price.
In accordance with its strategy in 2013, Lemminkäinen began the divestment of Lemcon Networks, which is not part of its core business. The operation sold now was the last part of Lemcon Networks owned by Lemminkäinen.
In the future, Lemminkäinen will focus on infrastructure construction and building construction in Northern Europe.
Cygate is a leading Nordic provider of network and data centre services and an expert in data security. Cygate’s 2013 net sales in Finland amounted to approximately EUR 62 million and the company had 180 employees.
Lemminkäinen has previously announced Lemcon Networks' divestments on 30 January 2013, 30 April 2013, 4 April 2014 and 10 April 2014.
