Chinese interested in parts of Osram’s lamp business

According to information from the dpa, Chinese investors have apparently expressed interest in parts of the business of the lighting technology group Osram.

The company Feilo Acoustics has informed its shareholders of its interest in the acquisition in a letter, referring to the plans of the traditional group from Munich. Osram has announced its plans to outsource its lamps business by the coming spring, so that the Chinese company is considering the purchase of parts of the traditional lighting business and the LED division.

An Osram spokesman refused to comment any further on the matter, saying that no purchase process has been initiated for the lamp business. Should the interest actually refer to the Osram division which is to be outsourced, then this shows that there is a certain interest.
