Schellenberg Wittmer represents PIERER Mobility AG before Swiss Takeover Board in connection with Planned Opting-Out Clause


The Swiss Takeover Board confirmed in its decision of 2 February 2021 the validity of a planned opting-out clause exempting PIERER Mobility AG from an obligation to make a mandatory tender offer pursuant to the Swiss Financial Market Infrastructure Act. If approved in the shareholders assembly, such opting-out clause will help to avoid positive competence conflicts going forward regarding the public offer laws applicable to PIERER Mobility AG due to its incorporation in Austria and dual listing in Switzerland and Germany.

The PIERER Mobility Group is Europe‘s leading manufacturer of powered two-wheelers. Their world-famous motorcycle brands (KTM, HUSQVARNA Motorcycles, GASGAS) make them one of Europe’s technology and market leaders, especially in the premium motorcycle segment.

Schellenberg Wittmer represented PIERER Mobility AG as Swiss counsel before the Swiss Takeover Board. The team included Philippe Borens, Fabio Elsener and Tim Isler (all Banking & Finance / Capital Markets), as well as Pascal Hubli (Corporate / M&A).
