INDUS signs contract to sell TKI

Bergisch Gladbach, 13 September 2019


The contract has been signed: IPETRONIK Eichstätt GmbH, a portfolio company of INDUS Holding AG, is selling its minority interest in TKI Automotive GmbH to the majority shareholder Audi Electronics Venture GmbH. TKI Automotive GmbH specializes in thermal management, comfort electronics and interior air conditioning for conventional drives and electrified vehicles. On July 23, INDUS had already announced the agreement on the sale and the resulting positive impact on earnings and liquidity. The sale is still subject to the approval of the antitrust authorities.

As a medium-sized holding company, INDUS primarily acquires companies from industries of the future such as automation, measurement and control technology, construction and security technology, medical engineering and life science, infrastructure and logistics technology as well as energy and environmental engineering or acquires a majority interest in such companies. The company’s strategy is to hold and develop these companies. In addition, INDUS invests in younger companies. As in the case of TKI, this also includes minority interests or joint ventures, which are also developed on a long-term basis or resold in individual cases.
