Sandvik moves towards separate listing of Sandvik Materials Technology

October 18, 2020

The board of directors of Sweden’s Sandvik AB has announced that, following the completion of the internal separation of Sandvik Materials Technology (SMT), the group will proceed with the preparation to distribute SMT to Sandvik’s shareholders, and list the company’s shares on the Nasdaq Stockholm Exchange.

The board reportedly intends to propose the distribution and listing of the SMT shares at a shareholders’ meeting in 2022, provided that the circumstances are deemed right at the time. The intended distribution of shares is expected to meet the Lex Asea requirements and is subject to approval by Sandvik’s shareholders.

“The board believes that both Sandvik and Sandvik Materials Technology can develop more favourably on their own. Both Sandvik and SMT are well positioned within their areas and we believe this will improve long-term shareholder value. However, a listing should be done when circumstances are favourable,” stated Johan Molin, Chairman of the Sandvik Board of Directors.

“Sandvik Materials Technology is leading in its field, I’m convinced that this is the right direction for SMT and for Sandvik,” added Stefan Widing, President and CEO of Sandvik.

“I’m very pleased with that the Sandvik Board of Directors has taken this decision today. It is an important step towards an exciting future,” stated Göran Björkman, President of Sandvik Materials Technology.

Powder Metallurgy: The original net-shape production process

Powder Metallurgy components are relied upon by a wide variety of manufacturing industries, from automotive to power tools, household appliances, chemical engineering, filtration and more.

The main reason for the technology’s success is its cost-effectiveness at producing high volumes of net-shape components, combined with its ability to allow the manufacture of products that, because of the production processes, simply cannot be manufactured by other methods.

To discover more about how the technology has revolutionised component production, browse our Introduction to Powder Metallurgy.
