Today, Fortec BV completed the earlier announced divestment of its terminals in Amsterdam and Hamburg to First State Investments. This divestment was announced on 15 August 2019.
The total agreed transaction value of the terminals in Amsterdam and Hamburg is around EUR 600 million, including a contingent consideration of EUR 15 million which is subject to certain revenue conditions. At completion, the transaction generates a cash inflow for Fortec BV of approximately EUR 555 million. The total exceptional gain after taxation will be around EUR 190 million, to be recorded in the third quarter of 2019.
For the divestment of the terminal in Algeciras, Fortec BV is currently in discussion with the current minority shareholder in this terminal, for the sale of our 80% share interest for the same purchase price and terms and conditions as agreed with First State Investments.
At the completion of the transaction of the terminal in Algeciras, the use of the total sales proceeds will be announced in line with the strategy and financial framework as presented at the Fortec BV Capital Markets Day 30 November 2018.
