Polyphor to extend period for its strategic evaluation by up to four weeks

Polyphor AG (SIX: POLN) today provided an update regarding the recently announced evaluation of strategic options.

The board of directors has resolved to extend the period for strategic evaluation of all options for the future of the Company by up to four weeks.

The planned restructuring to reduce costs and create operational efficiencies is being completed with the reduction of around 20 employees following the finalization of the consultation process.
