POELLATH advises Vodafone on squeeze-out at Kabel Deutschland under corporate transformation law

Vodafone Vierte Verwaltungs AG, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Vodafone GmbH, has executed a squeeze-out of Kabel Deutschland Holding AG under transformation law and has become the sole shareholder of Kabel Deutschland Holding AG upon registration of the ne-cessary resolutions in the commercial registers of the companies involved. The minority shareholders, who most recently held 5.99% of the share capital of Kabel Deutschland Hol-ding AG, have left the company in return for compensation of EUR 93 per share.

Vodafone has thus successfully completed the integration of Kabel Deutschland into the cor-porate group after acquiring a majority stake in Kabel Deutschland in 2013 as part of a public takeover bid and concluding a domination and profit and loss transfer agreement in 2014.

Vodafone Vierte Verwaltungs AG was subsequently merged into Vodafone GmbH.

POELLATH advised Vodafone on all corporate law matters in connection with the squeeze-out under transformation law, as well as advising them comprehensively on the preparation and support of the shareholders’ meeting of Kabel Deutschland Holding AG with the following team: 

  • Dr. Eva Nase (partner, lead, corporate and capital markets law, Munich)
  • Dr. Kay-Uwe Neumann (counsel, corporate and capital markets law, Frankfurt / Munich)
  • Emanuel Trotta (associate, corporate and capital markets law, Munich)
