Eltel sells its business operations in Latvia
In 2016, these operations generated net sales of EUR 4.7 million, were marginally loss-making and currently employ 91 people. The transaction, which is signed and closed today, is estimated to have a negative impact on Eltel’s Group EBITA in the third quarter 2017 of approximately EUR 1 million.
In February 2017, Eltel decided that its strategic focus will be on the Group’s core businesses in Power and Communication with the geographical markets being in the Nordics, Poland and Germany and non-core operations will be divested or ramped down.
