6. Decem­ber 2022

Stutt­gart — A Gleiss Lutz team has advi­sed Schalt­bau Holding AG on the sale of GEZ (Gesell­schaft für elek­tri­sche Zugaus­rüs­tung) Rail Solu­ti­ons GmbH (GEZ) to a group of inves­tors consis­ting of Nord West Manage­ment GmbH and Nieder­rhei­ni­sche Betei­li­gungs­ge­sell­schaft mbH. The tran­sac­tion is expec­ted to be comple­ted before the end of 2022. The parties have agreed not to disc­lose the purchase price or further details of the transaction.

Following the sale of SBRS Char­ging Solu­ti­ons to Shell Deutsch­land GmbH in Octo­ber 2022, which Gleiss Lutz also legally advi­sed, Schalt­bau Holding AG is now selling GEZ Rail Solu­ti­ons GmbH, the second company to emerge from the former SBRS GmbH, as part of its port­fo­lio focus.

With annual sales of appro­xi­mately €525 million and around 3,000 employees, Schalt­bau Holding AG is one of the leading inter­na­tio­nal suppliers of systems and compon­ents for the trans­por­ta­tion tech­no­logy and capi­tal goods industries.
