    The settlement agreement provides for a total payment of EUR 9.1 million (94 MNOK) to be made by Nekkar to MacGregor in full and final settlement of the disputed purchase price. The payment is net of EUR 0.8 million (8 MNOK) previously withheld by MacGregor related to the fulfilment of Nekkar tax obligations in China following completion of the acquisition.

    The settlement amount will have an approximately EUR 7 million positive impact on MacGregor’s first quarter 2021 operating profit.
