Electrolux: new strategy for Sda North American



Electrolux Group announced its strategic decision to focus its North American small appliances business on its strongest categories, as part of a process to improve the global competitiveness of the business area. In line with this decision, the company will divest its North American vacuum cleaner brand Eureka to Midea Group Co. The agreement includes most of the assets related to the Eureka brand. Sales of products under the Eureka brand amounted to approximately 60 million dollar over the past 12 months. The transaction is not expected to result in any material net one-off effects on the Group income statement. The transaction is expected to close before year end.
«This move allows us to focus on our most profitable categories in the U.S., – said Ola Nilsson, head of Electrolux small appliances. “It also allows us to invest in innovation and strategic growth. The U.S. vacuum cleaner market remains important for Electrolux.»
