Noerr advises AURELIUS on transformation to SE & Co. KGaA
With the legal advice of Noerr, the parent company of the AURELIUS Group has changed its legal form. Aurelius AG will in future operate as a German partnership limited by shares (AURELIUS SE & Co. KGaA).
The transformation is completed upon entry in the German Commercial Register effective 1 October 2015. The shareholders of the company approved the proposed change of form at the ordinary shareholders’ meeting on 15 June 2015.
An investment company, AURELIUS specialises in taking over and restructuring enterprises with development potential. Its current portfolio consists of 22 entities with total revenues of € 2 billion from many different industries. After the change of form, the shares of AURELIUS will still be listed in the m:access segment on the Munich Stock Exchange.
Noerr provided comprehensive corporate law advice to AURELIUS on developing the new structure and implementing the transformation. The team led by Dr. Gerald Reger and Dr. Ralph Schilha also prepared and assisted in the execution of the ordinary shareholders’ meeting.
