Luxembourg, 28 August 2013 – Transcom has now agreed on the final terms and conditions upon which it will be released from any further liabilities with respect to the liquidation of its former French subsidiary. The cost of the agreement is fully covered by the provision booked in Q1 2013. The negative cash flow effect for Transcom – which impacted Q2 2013 results – amounts to €5.3 million.
Transcom WorldWide (France) S.A.S. has been excluded from consolidation in Transcom WorldWide S.A.’s Group accounts since March 1, 2013.
