Same understanding of quality and Sustainability

Like low & Bonar, cordebo uses advanced technology in the development and production of fabrics and textiles, as well as in the finishing of textiles and materials. The products of both companies are famous for their excellent quality.

In terms of sustainable development, cordebo and low & Bonar adopt the same approach. Both companies aim to take responsible and sustainable action. Sustainability is integrated into the product cycle: from the use of raw materials and energy to the entire manufacturing process, not only in line with international standards, but even beyond.

Low & Bonar expects the acquisition to be completed in the first half of 2020. So far, the company has obtained irrevocable acceptance rights from about 442.1 million shares of the company, accounting for 64% of the total issued share capital of low & Bonar.

'I am pleased that FVB has made an attractive cash offer to acquire low & Bonar. During my short term at low & Bonar, the strengths of our staff, technology and market position are obvious, but the group is facing a challenging financial situation and a highly competitive market. ' Executive chairman Daniel Dayan said.

Dayan added: 'the company will provide low & Bonar's businesses and people with opportunities for development and growth, and enhance their value proposition for their customers.'

Also on Friday, low & Bonar said tough trading conditions in the first half of the year to the end of May continued into the second half, resulting in lower sales and profit than management expected for the third quarter to August 31.

Looking ahead, the company said it does not expect market conditions to improve in the short term, so low & Bonar is not expected to close the gap in the third quarter of this year.
