Umicore completes acquisition of Freeport cobalt-processing assets in Finland

By Mary Page Bailey |

Umicore N.V. (Brussels, Belgium; www.umicore.com) has completed the acquisition of Freeport Cobalt’s cobalt refining and cathode precursor activities in Kokkola, Finland, for an amount of $203 million on a debt and cash free basis (including approximately $50 million of net working capital). All regulatory clearances in relation to the transaction have been obtained.

It is anticipated that the acquisition will be earnings accretive from 2020 and value accretive from 2021, after completion of the integration process and a reduction of the net working capital resulting from supply chain synergies.
