from China for over EUR 400 m. The buyer was and is a Chinese consortium consisting of the lighting company MLS and the two financial investors IDG Capital Partners (IDG) and Yiwu State Owned Assets Operations Center (Yiwu).

MLS has now fully taken over the company shares from the previous two partners and is thus the sole owner of Ledvance. At the same time, it was agreed that IDG and Yiwu will become shareholders of MSL through a joint investment.
