Menold Bezler advises Globus Group on sale of tire centers

10. Febru­ary 2020

Stutt­gart — Globus SB-Waren­­haus Holding GmbH & Co. KG and other compa­nies of the Globus Group St. Wendel has sold 19 tire centers to GmbH. The sale took the form of an asset deal. Menold Bezler advi­sed Globus SB-Waren­­haus Holding on this tran­sac­tion. — The parties have agreed not to disc­lose the purchase price. The closing of the tran­sac­tion is subject to appr­oval by the rele­vant anti­trust authorities.

The family-owned Globus company based in St. Wendel opera­ted the tire centers on the premi­ses of the Globus SB depart­ment stores. As part of the take­over, this space will be leased to the buyer on a long-term basis and the tire centers will conti­nue to operate under the “pits­top” brand. The Essen-based company Pits­top, which is also family-run, is further expan­ding its network of around 330 auto­mo­tive service work­shops through this transaction.

In the past, Menold Bezler has frequently acted for Globus Fach­märkte, which also belongs to the Globus Group St. Wendel, in tran­sac­tions in the DIY sector. The mandate by Globus SB-Waren­­haus Holding for a tran­sac­tion in the hyper­mar­ket sector, which has now taken place for the first time, builds on this successful cooperation.
