SCA’s previously announced divestment of its packaging business, excluding the
two kraftliner mills in Sweden, has been completed.
The buyer is DS Smith and the purchase price amounts to EUR 1.7bn on a debt-free
basis. SCA’s two kraftliner mills in Sweden are not included in the transaction
as they are well integrated with SCA´s forest products operations.
The divested operations have approximately 12,000 employees.
