The article reports on the sale of the Swiss operations of Samas, the Dutch office-furniture maker, to private equity firm Nimbus for 9 million euros. Because of the international downturn in which few businesses are furnishing new offices, Samas reportedly has faced a difficult 2008. The divestiture comes after a series of previous asset sales by Samas, including the sale of its French unit in October 2008.
