Noerr advises Tengelmann group on restructuring KiK and TEDi investment


With a team headed by Dusseldorf partners Rainer Wilke and Natalie Daghles, Noerr has advised the Tengelmann group on restructuring its reciprocal investments with the H.H. group.

As part of the transaction, Tengelmann will acquire the shares currently held by the H.H. group in textile discounter KiK, which was founded in 1994 with effect from 1 January 2021. In return, the H.H. group will acquire the Tengelmann group’s share in non-food discounter TEDi with effect from 30 April 2021.

After more than 25 years of successful cooperation, the two family-owned companies will go their separate ways in the future. The transactions are subject to clearance by the competition authorities.
