In course of their business succession and a structured sales process, the families Inäbnit and Haag sell 70% of the Haag-Streit Group (HSH), with its 900 employees and distributors in more than 150 countries, to the Metall Zug Group which is under control of the Buhofer family, thereby not only ensuring the continued existence of the Group's sites in Switzerland but also of its approx. 300 jobs in the Berne region.
HSH is active in the ophthalmology, pneumatology, micro-surgery, optical and electronics segments. The transaction is subject to approval with respect to antitrust regulations.
Kellerhals Carrard (Team Brechbühl/Mosimann/Frésard/Emch/Bühler/Holdt/ Mirabi) advises the entrepreneurial families Inäbnit and Haag in the transaction.
