Burkhalter Holding AG / Key word(s): Disposal

29-Apr-2022 / 17:40 CET/CEST
Release of an ad hoc announcement pursuant to Art. 53 LR
The issuer is solely responsible for the content of this announcement.

Ad-hoc announcement pursuant to Art. 53 of the Listing Rules

As part of a concentrated focus on its key area of expertise of electrical engineering/building technology, the Burkhalter Group is selling el-consult AG, based in Oberriet (St. Gallen), which it acquired in 2015 in connection with the takeover of the Kolb Group's electrical engineering department. Given that the ten or so Kolb el-consult AG employees are largely employed in the field of project planning, monitoring and expertise regarding electricity grid distribution equipment, which does not fall within the scope of Burkhalter's key area of expertise, the company will be sold back to its previous owners as of 1 May 2022.

This transaction will have minimum financial impact on the Burkhalter Group.
