On 20 March 2024, CPH Chemie + Papier Holding AG announced its intention to separate its paper business and real estate from its chemicals and packaging activities. The transaction is intended to further enhance the company’s long-term value and increase its attractiveness on the capital market. The spin-off will create two focused companies in their respective markets from the historically grown industrial conglomerate. The growth-oriented and high-margin Chemistry and Packaging divisions will remain in the listed CPH Chemie + Papier Holding AG, which will now operate under the name “CPH Group AG”. This opens up the possibility of substantially increasing the global market presence of the well-established Zeochem and Perlen Packaging brands and preparing CPH Group AG for the future. Geographically, the focus is on international niche markets with above-average growth opportunities in Asia, the USA and Latin America. The more volatile paper manufacturing business will be continued together with the real estate in Perlen in a newly established “Perlen Industrieholding AG”, whose shares will be traded over-the-counter. As an independent company in an off-exchange environment, the paper business can concentrate better on its strengths and the “last man standing” strategy. In addition, the real-estate assets of the Perlen industrial site offer long-term attractive commercial potential for Perlen Industrieholding AG.
