JPEL is pleased to announce that The Smithfield Group LLP ('Smithfield') has agreed to sell Innovia ("Innovia"), the global leader in specialty BOPP films and polymer banknote substrate, to CCL Industries Inc ("CCL"), a world leader in specialty label, security and packaging solutions, for CAD1.13 billion*.  The transaction is subject to regulatory and change of control approvals as well as customary completion conditions and procedures, with closing expected by the end of the first quarter, 2017.  

 

JPEL holds an indirect interest in Innovia.  The sale of Innovia is likely to result in a realised investment return of approximately 3.2x and a IRR of 50.2% for JPEL, on a Euro basis.**  Based on the sale price, JPEL is expecting to receive proceeds of approximately EUR 32 million, which is approximately EUR 16 million above current carrying value.**

 

At 30 September 2016, Innovia represented 3.6% of JPEL's total NAV and was JPEL's 10th largest underlying investment.  Innovia is currently valued at 1.6x JPEL's cost at 30 September 2016, on a Euro basis.

 

 

* CAD 1.13 billion (Canadian dollars). The exchange rate used was 1.4 C$ / Euro.
