Schoenherr, working with Pinsent Masons and Wenger Vieli, has advised Kontron on selling parts of Kontron Group’s IT services business to Vinci Energies during a competitive auction process, for approximately EUR 400 million. Reportedly, Baker McKenzie’s German office advised Vinci Energies. Loloci & Associates advised Kontron on Albanian matters.

The transaction remains contingent on regulatory approval.

Operations in eleven countries were included in the transaction. According to Schoenherr, “Vinci Energies, through its brand Axians, is a global information and communications technology group belonging to the listed French group Vinci.
