Elexon was founded as a joint venture of SMA Solar Technology AG ("SMA") in 2019. Since then, the company has installed charging stations and e-charging parks for corporate/industrial fleets in the logistics sector in Germany and Europe. Elexon has now been sold with all shares to VARO, a leading European energy company.
With elexon, VARO will continue its growth trajectory, particularly in the e-mobility business, and further leverage the new synergies in the energy and mobility sector.
The takeover was comprehensively supported by a specialized M&A team from WTS. The tax team was responsible for preparing the tax due diligence and structuring the acquisition for tax purposes. They also negotiated the SPA tax clause.
Following the signing of the purchase agreement, the takeover is expected to take place in the first quarter of 2024. The parties have agreed not to disclose the purchase price.
