Dr. Haldor Topsøe to be sole proprietor of Topsøe

The Topsøe family has acquired all of its Italian partner Saipem's shares in Haldor Topsøe A/S for EUR 340 million.

94-year-old Dr. Haldor Topsøe recently acquired Italian Saipem's share in Haldor Topsøe A/S so that the Topsøe family now owns the entire Haldor Topsøe. The shares which represented 50 per cent have been acquired for EUR 340 million, informs the company in a press release.

"Haldor Topsøe A/S and Saipem will continue their commercial relationship - notably in the areas of ammonia and fertilizer and with both Snamprogetti and the broader Saipem and ENI groups," says Dr. Topsøe.

"We are fortunate that the company's competences within engineering, catalysis and nanotechnology play an increasing role in solving today's energy and environmental problems," continued Dr. Topsøe.
