- Complete integration of the E-Bike Division PEXCO GmbH into the listed company PIERER Mobility AG
- Expansion of the Management Board
Complete Takeover of the E-Bike Division PEXCO GmbH
After setting out the entire legal framework and after the approval of the responsible antitrust authorities, the structures have already been created to carry out the complete integration of PEXCO GmbH into PIERER Mobility AG and to take the next step in growth.
Today, the supervisory board has resolved to take over the remaining 60% of the shares in PEXCO GmbH from Pierer Industrie AG at its acquisition value, with PEXCO now becoming part of the PIERER Mobility AG consolidation group already at the end of 2019. This is a further step of the group towards internationalization in the two-wheeler-electro mobility. For the coming year sales of around EUR 100 million are expected in this business field.
Together with the publication of the preliminary financial figures for the 2019 financial year, also the guidance for the 2020 financial year will be published, which will also take into account the expected contribution of PEXCO.
Expansion of the Management Board
With immediate effect, Viktor Sigl, MBA, Member of the Management Board of KTM AG, is also appointed to the management board of the listed company PIERER Mobility AG.
