Together with GEH, which is held by the company’s founder Dr. Thomas Gerhold, the Swedish financial investor EQT Infrastructure III (“EQT”) sells the Magdeburg-based energy service provider G+E GETEC Holding GmbH to the Infrastructure Investments Fund (“IFF”), the infrastructure arm of JP Morgan.

The agreement is still subject to the customary regulatory approvals. The transaction is expected to close at the end of the first quarter of 2022. POELLATH previously advised EQT on the most recent acquisition of a 75% stake in 2017 for the management participation.
