Kronach - January 16, 2014 - A group of investors comprised of German
family-business entrepreneurs and former Apple and Bang & Olufsen senior
managers and the Executive Board of Loewe AG have today reached an
agreement to acquire significant parts of Loewe by way of an asset deal.
Thus, continuity of the Loewe traditional brand in German hands has been
secured. Alongside the new corporate head office in Munich, the development
centres in Kronach and Hanover, as well as central business functions at
the main site in Kronach, will also remain in place. A strong focus on
advanced home entertainment and digital lifestyle products as well as the
expansion of the strategic partnership with Chinese technology supplier
Hisense are part of the new owners' future strategy. The amount of the
agreed purchase price was not disclosed. Following the transaction, Loewe
AG shall be delisted and liquidated in due time.
