Luxembourg, 28 May 2014 – Transcom today announced the divestment of its Czech Credit Management Services (CMS) business to Credit Express Group for €2.1 million. The transaction was simultaneously signed and closed.

On a cash and debt free basis, these two transactions are valued at €2.0 million, and will result in a capital loss amounting to approximately €0.5 million.  Further details will be given in Transcom’s Q2 2014 interim report.
