In response to market rumours that Apollo and Swoctem GmbH are working on an indication of interest in the acquisition of up to 100% of the shares of the company, Klockner & Co SE said “Apollo & Swoctem had submitted a non binding indication of interest to the company, but have retracted confirming that they will not pursue the transaction further at this stage.”
Irrespective of these developments, Klöckner & Co continues to implement the successful Surtsey project, which is focused on accelerating Klockner & Co’s digital transformation and fostering restructuring initiatives.
