STEAG GmbH and Bejing Capital Group Consortium Bid for EEW Energy, 2016

We represented a consortium consisting of STEAG GmbH and Bejing Capital Group in connection with the bidding process to acquire EEW Energy from Waste GmbH (EEW), the market-leading energy-from-waste company in Germany, from private equity investor EQT. We advised the consortium regarding the bidding procedure, due diligence, SPA negotiations, financing and merger control procedure. In the end, EQT has reached an agreement in principle to sell EEW to the competing bidder, Beijing Enterprises Holding, for approximately €1.4 billion.
