The offer corresponds to a premium of 17.8 percent compared to Götenehus' last closing price on Wednesday.
Before the offer, EHF and Erik Hemberg privately own approximately 72 percent of Götenehus. In addition, the shareholders Karl-Johan Blank (via Nordea Liv & Pension) and Claes Hansson, with a total of approximately 9.1 percent of the shares in Götenehus, have unconditionally committed to accepting the offer.
The acceptance period is expected to begin on Friday 17 November and last until around 15 December.
The offer values the entire Götenehus at approximately SEK 398 million.
The press release states several reasons why Götenehus would be a better fit as an unlisted company. One of these is that all of its three business areas are facing challenges in the declining economic climate.
"It is EHF's opinion that Götenehus, and all three business areas, need to implement changes in order to create a more stable platform for future growth and profitability. The company's participation in a continued consolidation, of both the house manufacturing market and property management within Forshem, will initially have negative results effects and can be implemented both faster and more powerfully under private ownership," it says.
Another reason is that the company can save money by allowing the management to focus entirely on developing the business instead of having to deal with stock market issues.
Götenehus has implemented several savings programs during the year.
