Kongsberg buys almost half of Patria

Finnish state-owned defence manufacturer Patria announced a plan to privatize a portion of the company by selling it to Norwegian partially state-owned defence company Kongsberg.

Patria, in a written statement said, “The competition authorities have granted their approval concerning sale by State of Finland of 49.9 percent of the defence company Patria Oyj to Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace AS"  Patria said the value of the deal was 283.5 million euros ($316 million).

Patria, was a profitable business until 2008, when the company was linked to bribing scandals in sales to Slovenia, Egypt and Croatia. Eventually, after seven years, all charges were dropped against Patria and its bosses. The company has managed to recover from the reputational damage it suffered as a result, but in 2014 Finland's government decided to seek a new minority owner to the company. Half of Kongsberg is owned by the Norwegian state and the rest by international investors.

On March 17th, the Ownership Steering Department in the Prime Minister’s Office has released information about Patria’s new minority owner and ownership structure.
