Sandvik, which already owns a 12.4% stake in the company, said in a statement it will through the deal raise its stake to 72.4%, and that the enterprise value for the acquired stake is 189 million euros ($202 million).

The impact on Sandvik’s earnings per share, excluding non-cash amortization effects from business combinations, will be positive, it said.
