Upward revaluation of interest in SIX Group
SIX Group AG informed its shareholders today that the divestment of its Payment Services unit to Worldline would result in a provisional gain of CHF 2.7 bn for SIX Group AG. Bellevue Group AG holds 1.175% of the shares of SIX Group AG through its subsidiary Bank am Bellevue AG. Applying a discount to reflect the lack of liquidity and taking into consideration deferred taxes, Bellevue Group AG calculates that this revaluation will increase the fair value of its interest in SIX Group AG by about CHF 23 mn to a total of CHF 43.8 mn. This remeasurement gain must be recognized directly in equity as other comprehensive income. Reported equity of Bellevue Group AG as of June 30, 2018 amounted to
CHF 170 mn.
SIX Group AG announced that it would finalize its calculations in January 2019. This may have an impact on the future measurement of our interest in the company.
The annual report for 2018 will be published on February 26, 2019.
