To put things into a perspective, the deal accounts for 28.2% of the company’s trailing 12m consolidated sales.
On Tuesday, Končar Group signed a Sale and Purchase Agreement with HŽ Passenger Transport Ltd. for 21 electric multiple units, of which 11 for urban-suburban traffic (UST) and 10 for regional traffic (RT).
The mentioned contract is worth HRK 844.7m in total, while the final deadline for delivery of all trains is December 2023. To put things into a perspective, the mentioned deal accounts for 28.2% of the company’s trailing 12m consolidated sales.
Production of new electric multiple units will be financed mostly by EU funds under the Operational Programme Competitiveness and Cohesion 2014 – 2020 (85%) and partly by the State Budget of the Republic of Croatia (15%). Deadline for delivery of the first electric multiple unit for urban-suburban traffic will be 24 months after the signing of the Agreement, after which 10 more electric multiple units for urban-suburban traffic will be delivered, followed by 10 units intended for regional traffic.
Končar Group added that the signing of this Agreement represents a continuation of cooperation between KONČAR and HŽ Passenger Transport in the modernisation and upgrading of railway vehicle fleet.
As a reminder, Končar’s Management expects to see a 5% increase in sales for FY 2020. The company recently published their 9M 2020 results, which you can read more about here.
