Osram confirms talks with Bain and Carlyle

At the shareholders' general meeting of Osram Licht AG on 19 February, the shareholders wanted information on the status of a takeover by third parties. The board blocked in order not jeopardize ongoing talks.

But it is an open secret that Osram has conducted intensive discussions with the investors Bain Capital and the Carlyle Group. The audits continue: a decision on whether and how many percent will be taken is expected to fall by the end of March.
