Nuplex signed a Share Sale Agreement for its shares in Nuplex Medismart and its 50% shareholding in Daniels Sharpsmart Australia, through Nuplex subsidiary Medihold International.

The A$4 million sale will be settled in accordance with the conditions of a vendor finance agreement signed between Medihold and Stericorp. This agreement provides for payment of the amount loaned within a period of 18 months. The loan will be interest free for the first 12 months.
