Munich, 10th April 2019 - The audi­ting and con­sul­ting firm Ebner Stolz advi­sed ZIEG­LER GROUP on the com­p­lete acqui­si­tion of Engel­hardt & Geiss­bauer GmbH ("E&G GmbH") as well as on the acqui­si­tion of majo­rity sha­res in Schweb­hei­mer Hol­z­e­le­ment­bau GmbH ("SH GmbH") and on the acqui­si­tion of selec­ted assets of Engel­hardt & Geiss­bauer GbR ("E&G GbR"). Tran­sac­tion sup­port was pro­vi­ded in form of a Finan­cial Due Dili­gence.

The ZIEG­LER GROUP, head­quar­te­red in Plöß­b­erg (Bava­ria), is a wood­wor­king com­pany ope­ra­ting throug­hout Europe. Despite its size, the ZIEG­LER GROUP has remai­ned an owner-mana­ged family busi­ness.

Based in Burg­bern­heim, E&G GmbH has many years of expe­ri­ence in the assem­bly of pre­fa­bri­ca­ted woo­den hou­ses and was fully acqui­red as part of a share deal. In addi­tion, the ZIEG­LER GROUP also takes over the fixed assets of E&G GbR, which func­ti­ons as a hol­ding com­pany in the Engel­hardt & Geiss­bauer Group, as part of an asset deal. The sha­res were sold by the two pre­vious share­hol­ders.

As part of ano­ther share deal, the ZIEG­LER GROUP also acqui­res a majo­rity stake in SH GmbH, which acts as a pro­duc­tion com­pany for the above-men­tio­ned E&G GmbH. The pre­vious share­hol­der of SH GmbH reta­ins mino­rity inte­rest in the com­pany and con­ti­nues his role as a share­hol­der.

As the new owner of the Engel­hardt & Geiss­bauer Group and SH GmbH, the ZIEG­LER GROUP plans to expand its value chain in the field of pre­fa­bri­ca­ted woo­den hou­ses.

Ebner Stolz pro­vi­ded the ZIEG­LER GROUP with Finan­cial Due Dili­gence sup­port wit­hin the tran­sac­tion pro­cess.
