Management Board of IMS S.A. (“Issuer”, “Company”) informs that on 2 July the Issuer sold to a natural person all of its shares (constituting 73% of the share capital and giving the right to 73% of votes) in the subsidiary IMS events Sp. z o.o. The sale price was PLN 40 thousand.
IMS events is the business segment of the IMS Capital Group (“the Group”) most affected by negative economic effects caused by the coronavirus pandemic. The estimated revenues of IMS events for the first half of 2020 will amount to only approx. 10% of the revenues generated in the first half of 2019, and the equity of this company shown in the Group’s consolidated financial statement fell below zero at the end of the first half of this year.
The disposal of this subsidiary (and exclusion of its results from the Group’s consolidated statement) will allow to focus even more strongly on the most profitable segments of the Group’s operations.
