Leoni sells electrical appliance assemblies business to BizLink

Leoni will sell its business activities with cable assemblies and harnesses for household appliances and power tools.
The acquirer, BizLink, is a listed Taiwanese provider of interconnect solutions with headquarters in Fremont, California. The enterprise value amounts to EUR 50 million.

“Our Wire & Cable Solutions Division is transforming to become a more solution-oriented provider for its customers and to profit from the trend towards digitisation. For that reason, we have evaluated all elements of our portfolio if they fit into the future strategy. With the divestment of the electrical appliance assemblies business, we make a considerable step in focussing on core activities with profitable growth potential“, states Bruno Fankhauser, Member of the Board of Directors of Leoni AG in charge of the Wire & Cable Solutions Division.

Within this division, the business to be sold is bundled in the Business Group Electrical Appliance Assemblies which accounted for consolidated sales of EUR 130 million in fiscal 2015. It encompasses locations in Germany, Belgium, Slovakia, Serbia and China with approximately 2’000 employees. With this transaction, BizLink intends to gain a lasting foothold in the European market.

The proposed transaction is subject to regulatory approval and customary closing conditions. The closing transaction is expected to happen in the first half of 2017.
