Sursee (Switzerland), 28 July 2022


The Board of Directors of the CALIDA GROUP has been informed by the Kellenberger family, founding family and anchor shareholder of the CALIDA GROUP, that they wish to initiate the arrangement of their succession as anchor shareholder. There is no successor for Erich Kellenberger with the necessary industrial expertise available within the family in the foreseeable future. Against this background, the Kellenberger family intends to sell its 33.5% shareholding in the CALIDA GROUP. The Kellenberger family is aiming for a constructive solution for all stakeholders and intends to pass on its shareholding to responsible shareholders.

The Board of Directors and the Management have taken note of the intention of the founding family. Their goal is to successfully further develop the CALIDA GROUP as an independent listed company. The ACCELERATE 2026 growth strategy presented in November 2021 will continue to be implemented as planned.
