Kapsch TrafficCom has sold its interest in Q-Free ASA.
Kapsch TrafficCom held a 15.4% interest in Q-Free ASA (Q-Free), a provider of intelligent transportations services from Norway. Because the stake has become non-strategic, it has been for sale for a while. By selling over the stock exchange and, eventually, over-the-counter block trades the stake could be divested at an average price of about NOK 4.73 per share.
In addition to a cash inflow of more than EUR 5 million, this transaction has a positive impact on the financial result of Kapsch TrafficCom and reduces the financial risks of the company.
