Company Announcement No. 6, 2021
FLSmidth today announces that it remains in negotiations with ThyssenKrupp concerning an acquisition of ThyssenKrupp's mining business. Since FLSmidth's announcement of 15 January 2021 (company announcement no. 1-2021), the parties have progressed the discussions and entered the final stage of negotiations. However the transaction remains at a non-binding stage. Accordingly, there can be no assurances as to whether and when a transaction will transpire.
