Mondi to acquire Turkish corrugated packaging firm Olmuksan


Mondi has agreed to acquire 90.38% of the outstanding shares in Olmuksan International Paper Ambalaj Sanayi ve Ticaret A.S for €66 million. Olmuksan is a leading and well-established corrugated packaging player in Turkey, listed on the Istanbul stock exchange.

The implied enterprise value on a 100% basis would amount to around €88 million.

Olmuksan's network of five plants provides a diverse customer base with high-quality sustainable packaging for food, beverage, agriculture and industrial applications. For the twelve months ended 30 September 2020, the company produced 256 thousand tonnes of corrugated packaging and generated revenues of €150 million.

Mondi's current Turkish footprint includes four corrugated packaging plants and a recycled containerboard paper mill, as well as three flexible packaging sites. Leveraging its expertise and experience in this market, together with its global virgin and recycled containerboard portfolio, the firm expects to generate significant operational improvements and paper integration upside.

The transaction remains subject to competition clearance and other closing conditions and is expected to complete in the first half of 2021. Following the completion of the transaction, Mondi will launch a mandatory tender offer to acquire the remaining 9.62% of outstanding shares in the company held by minority shareholders.

Andrew King, Mondi's group chief executive officer, said: "We are excited by this unique opportunity to significantly strengthen our position in the fast-growing Turkish corrugated market and expand our offering to existing and new customers in the region."
