HISTORY

EUROMETALGROUP s.r.o. was founded in 2006 by the large Czech parent company M.A.T. Group s.r.o., which over the past decade has had a stable turnover exceeding CZK 700,000,000 and assets of more than half a billion Czech crowns.

For the organization of production, the building of the former textile factory was chosen, which the company acquired as property in the town of Krásná Lípa, located on a strategic location near the border with Germany (10 km) and Poland (28 km).

Since the first days of its existence, EUROMETALGROUP s.r.o., the parent company of M.A.T. Group has made significant investments in the purchase of modern equipment for the creation of competitive serial production of fireplace stoves and thick-walled chimneys.

Qualified management, production specialists and workers were selected, a marketing and sales department was created.
After the first year of operation, the company’s turnover amounted to 46,500,000 CZK, with 45 employees.

  • 2009: Sales turnover amounted to CK 89,354,000, with 88 employees.
  • 2017: CZK 92,000,000, with 98 employees.

Product Sales

The main part of the production of fireplace stoves in the amount of 95% is exported to Scandinavia, Germany and the UK.

A fairly significant part of the finished, as well as unfinished products is purchased by a well-known company from Denmark – LOTUS: www.lotusfires.com. In the future, this company sells EUROMETALGROUP products on the Scandinavian market under its brand LOTUS, at a price 3-4 times higher than the purchase price.

The management of EUROMETALGROUP tried to enter the Scandinavian market directly with cheaper prices and bypassing Lotus however, due to the fact that the LOTUS brand is known to customers and more prestigious – the attempt of EUROMETALGROUP was unsuccessful.

For many years, a scheme has often been used when the parent company MAT GROUP buys products from EUROMETALGROUP almost at cost (or with a very small margin), and exports or sells products at a full price to foreign and domestic markets already in its name, accumulating profits in its accounts.

Currently, EUROMETALGROUP products are represented in all the largest construction hypermarkets in the Czech Republic and Slovakia: Hornbach, OBI, Bauhaus, Mountfield, Baumax, but the supplier to hypermarkets is still the former parent company MAT GROUP, and EUROMETALGROUP does not even have contacts for purchasing departments.

The new owner and management in the near future will need to create their own direct contractual relations with each construction hypermarket and conduct an audit of export supplies to foreign buyers, and with some also conclude direct contracts bypassing MAT GROUP.

An excellent prospect may also be access to the markets of Russia and the countries of the former USSR. Prices, quality and products seem to be very competitive, and the old management of the company never made an attempt to enter this market.

Due to the fact that the former parent company used schemes to squeeze and accumulate profits in its accounts, in certain previous years, as well as continuously since 2017 – EUROMETALGROUP has an accumulated loss to be carried over to the profit of subsequent tax periods. This factor is reflected in the current sale price of the plant, which, subject to the reflected profit, would be much higher.

Prior to the sale of EUROMETALGROUP in September this year, the former parent company M.A.T. Group s.r.o. withdrew certain assets, including finished products, from the company in July and August.

As of 31.8.2020, the loss in the current year is 7,479,000 CZK.

The extraordinary financial report dated 31.8.2020 reflects the real economy of the company as of September 1, 2020.

Prospect of the plant after the transaction

For the new owner, the main value will be primarily a well-established production, in the equipment of which more than 70,000,000 CZK was invested (the last major acquisition – in 2017 – the Trumpf Trumatic L3030 with Loadmaster laser cutting system for 11,151,000 hours), the supply and sales system, as well as management, specialists and employees who are able to work skillfully and produce competitive products of high quality.

Provided that the new owner creates a competent system of management and delegation, the loss of previous years, which was formed as a result of the use by the former parent company of schemes to squeeze profits from a subsidiary, can be used to reduce taxable profits (a taxpayer who received a loss to be carried forward has the right to reduce the amount of the tax base in the tax return of future periods by the entire amount of the loss).

The plant’s products have a high added value and with competent management and marketing, the enterprise is able to be highly profitable, especially when realizing the possibility of entering new markets. In this regard, given the climatic conditions, the market of Russia, Belarus, Ukraine and Kazakhstan can be very promising.
