Düssel­dorf — A Deloitte Legal team led by Düssel­dorf M&A part­ners Michael von Rüden and Dirk Hänisch (both lead part­ners) advi­sed SIX Swiss Exch­ange-listed Imple­nia Group, one of Switzerland’s leading cons­truc­tion and real estate services compa­nies, on the plan­ned sale of German-based Imple­nia Instand­set­zung GmbH to Karrié Bau GmbH & Co KG. As a result of the tran­sac­tion, which was signed on April 16, 2021 and is expec­ted to be comple­ted on May 31, 2021 (closing), all sites and ongo­ing projects with a total of 199 employees of the Main­ten­ance divi­sion will be trans­fer­red to Karrié Bau.

Imple­nia is dispo­sing of the main­ten­ance busi­ness in order to focus further on the defi­ned core port­fo­lio in line with its stra­tegy. Karrié Bau plans to assume respon­si­bi­lity for ongo­ing projects after the acqui­si­tion is comple­ted. As part of the tran­sac­tion, the condi­ti­ons were crea­ted for a seam­less carve-out of the main­ten­ance busi­ness and its successful conti­nua­tion by Karrié Bau.

In the imple­men­ta­tion of the project, the Deloitte Legal team was able to contri­bute to the success through a combi­na­tion of first-class legal advice, tran­sac­tion expe­ri­ence and goal-orien­­ted commu­ni­ca­tion. The close coope­ra­tion with colle­agues from Deloitte Corpo­rate Finance and Deloitte Tran­sac­tion Services Switz­er­land and Deloitte Tax Germany enab­led compre­hen­sive inter­di­sci­pli­nary advice on all commer­cial, legal and tax aspects mate­rial to the tran­sac­tion.
