Outokumpu has sold 48 acres of surplus land in Sheffield, UK to a UK-based developer Peel Logistics Property. Outokumpu’s operations in Sheffield remain unchanged.

Martin Pinder, Vice President, Human Resources of Outokumpu in UK commented: “We are glad that we found a buyer for the redevelopment of this cleared and unused site located in the distribution and industrial area close to Sheffield city centre, creating business and employment opportunities in the Sheffield area.”

The cash consideration is approximately 10 million euro, and the transaction reduces Outokumpu’s net debt by the approximately same amount. Outokumpu does not consider the financial impact of the transaction to be material, and reports it as an adjustment in its second-quarter 2017 results.
