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. www.deloittelegal.de
