BRAMPTON, ON, July 9 /CNW/ - Norwall Group Inc. (TSXV: NGI) ("Norwall") announced today that it has entered into an agreement of purchase and sale to sell its property located in Brampton, Ontario for $6,800,000. The estimated net proceeds to Norwall, net of real estate commission, repayment of the first mortgage and other costs are expected to be approximately $2,700,000. The transaction is conditional upon the satisfaction of certain requirements. The transaction is expected to close during the fourth quarter of 2010.
The sale of the land and building is consistent with Norwall's decision to outsource its wallpaper manufacturing in North America due to the continued erosion of the global wallcovering markets, the appreciation of the Canadian dollar and the fact that most of Norwall's sales are denominated in US dollars.
Norwall manufactures and designs quality residential wallpapers and borders and distributes them to thousands of home centers, specialty stores and mass merchants in Canada and through its wholly-owned operating subsidiary, Patton Wallcoverings, in the United States and in 52 countries worldwide.
