11/07/2019

Munich – A consortium comprising hagebau and five Bavarian companies associated with hagebau has acquired the 14 DIY stores and builders’ merchants depots belonging to the Danhauser Group. This move preserves the unity of the company, which will remain a member of the hagebau Group going forward. The transaction is currently awaiting approval from the competition authorities. Details of the transaction were not disclosed.

A CMS team led by Richard Mitterhuber advised on all legal aspects of the complex transaction. The in-house Smart Operations unit was also part of the team. This multi-location team of commercial lawyers uses proprietary legal tech tools to provide support for due diligence processes and similar checks.
