Dutch Samas to go it alone

Monday 31 March 2008

Dutch office-furniture maker Samas Groep NV will continue operating as a stand-alone company, according to the review of its strategic options, Samas said in a statement Monday.
In a bid to restore its profitability, the firm will simplify its business model and will look for a new owner for its Swiss activities.

As part of its strategic review, the company has held talks with various unnamed parties \"given the present consolidation trend in the sector,\" but they have not generated any interest, said CFO Mark van den Biggelaar.

In addition, Samas intends to focus on bigger countries. It plans to reorganize its business model by making its units in various countries more independent and give them broader commercial, operational and financial responsibilities.

The structure of the markets in Europe for office-furniture is strongly determined by national and regional factors and that is why such an approach would work, the company argued. It added that the expected consolidation in the sector is difficult to predict and would possibly differ per country
