Report on Post-Balance Sheet Date Events
As a result of a technical incident on January 24, 2023 at the Italian subsidiary Comet SpA in Solbiate con Cagno/Lombardy, parts of production at this site had to be shut down. Comprehensive measures were immediately initiated to compensate for possible supply shortfalls. We currently expect maintenance costs to be in the single-digit million range. According to initial analyses, production of a large proportion of the products can be relocated to other tesa production sites without any supply restrictions. A complete relocation is not expected to be possible. Despite the introduction of compensatory measures, sales shortfalls cannot be ruled out, although their amount cannot be quantified sufficiently at the present time.
