Frank­furt a. M. — KKR’s take­over offer for a total of 87,007,448 Enca­vis shares was accepted in due time on June 18, 2024. This corre­sponds to appro­xi­m­ately 87.41 percent of all outstan­ding Enca­vis Shares, inclu­ding the Enca­vis Shares which ABACON and other share­hol­ders have sold to the Bidder under binding agree­ments or which will be trans­fer­red to the Bidder by way of a roll-over.

KKR intends to complete the delis­ting of Enca­vis as soon as legally and prac­ti­cally possi­ble in order to bene­fit from the finan­cial flexi­bi­lity and long-term commit­ment of KKR and Viess­mann in private ownership.

On March 14, 2024, the bidder announ­ced a volun­t­ary public take­over offer for all outstan­ding Enca­vis shares. Viess­mann is inves­t­ing as a share­hol­der in the consor­tium led by KKR. The volun­t­ary public take­over offer is still subject to the condi­ti­ons set out in sections 12.1.1, 12.1.3 (ii), (iv), (v) and 12.1.4 of the Offer Docu­ment. The tran­sac­tion is expec­ted to be comple­ted in the fourth quar­ter of 2024. The offer docu­ment and further infor­ma­tion are available at

In March 2024, the family-owned company Viess­mann, toge­ther with KKR, announ­ced a new stra­te­gic invest­ment in Enca­vis, one of the leading plat­forms for rene­wa­ble ener­gies based in Hamburg. As part of the tran­sac­tion, Viess­mann inves­ted as a share­hol­der in the KKR-led consortium.
