Allen & Overy advises Triton on the successful IPO of its portfolio company Stabilus

23 May 2014

Allen & Overy LLP advised financial investor Triton on the successful initial public offering of its portfolio company Stabilus S.A. ("Stabilus"), a global automotive and industrial supplier.
Stabilus began trading today on the Frankfurt stock exchange at a price of EUR 22.75 per share, significantly over the issue price of EUR 21.50 per share.

Stabilus develops and produces electromechanical drives, gas springs and dampers. The company, which is headquartered in Koblenz and employs around 4,000 people worldwide, generated sales of around EUR 460 million in the 2012/2013 financial year. Triton acquired Stabilus in early 2010 in a challenging economic environment and, by investing fresh capital and making targeted investments in new products and growth areas, turned the company into a global market leader.

The Allen & Overy team was led by Frankfurt partner Gernot Wagner (US corporate finance) and also included partners Dr. Oliver Seiler (capital markets), Thomas Neubaum (banking and finance), Dr. Hans-Peter Löw (employment & benefits), Dr. Heike Weber (tax), counsels Dirk Eisel, Dr. Knut Sauer (both capital markets), senior associates Dr. Urs Lewens (banking and finance), Dr. Camilla Kehler-Weiß (capital markets) and associates Dr. Alexander Schlee (capital markets), Rebecca Emory (US corporate finance), Dr. Johanna Gerstung, Dr. Sebastian Schulz (both employment & benefits) and Yannick Adler (US corporate finance, all Frankfurt).
