Shares of Siemens may edge higher after the company announced that its board of directors has decided to consider the distribution of 50% of the proceeds from the sale of its healthcare undertaking as a special dividend to the companys shareholders. The board will take the decision on special dividend at its first board meeting after the completion of the transaction. The transaction is expected to be completed by 1 July 2016. Siemens has approved the sale and transfer of the healthcare undertaking as a going concern on a slump sale basis to the subsidiary of its parent firm Siemens AG, Germany for total consideration of Rs 3050 crore. The unit clocked revenue of Rs 1424.80 crore in the year ended 30 September 2015 (FY 2015), accounting for 13.55% of the companys revenue for the year. The unit had negative networth of Rs 88.50 crore as on 30 September 2015. The transaction is subject to the approval of the companys shareholders through an ordinary resolution.

Regarding the rationale for the sale of the healthcare unit to the parent firm, Siemens said that it would allow the parent firm increased flexibility, greater entrepreneurial freedom and faster decision making to grow its India healthcare segment independently. The healthcare unit is highly dependent on the parent company and its subsidiaries for products and technical know-how and that significant long-term investments are required for localization of products and solutions of the unit, Siemens said. Siemens further said that currently there are limited synergies between the healthcare business and its other business segments. The sale of the unit will allow Siemens to increase its focus and capital allocation to power generation, transmission and distribution, mobility, industrial automation and Smart Cities segments. The transaction will be margin accretive for Siemens. The company made the announcement on the sale of the healthcare unit after trading hours on Friday, 4 March 2016.
