Hendrickson sells stake in MBHA

Nov. 19, 2014

Following the agreement on the acquisition of the leaf spring and stabilizer segments of the Austrian Frauenthal Group in June 2014, which is expected to close at the end of 2014 / early 2015, Hendrickson has entered into an agreement to sell its 50% stake in Muelles y Ballestas Hispano-Alemanas, S.A. (MBHA) to the other 50% shareholder, InvestZiur, in November 2014. As a result, both Hendrickson and MBHA will be able to pursue a stand-alone strategy.  
Following completion of both of the transactions, MBHA will be wholly-owned by its founding shareholders, InvestZiur, and the Frauenthal Group’s leaf spring and stabilizer business will be wholly-owned by Hendrickson.
