Siemens Energy Considering Full Acquisition and Delisting of Siemens Gamesa

The management of Siemens Energy AG is considering a cash tender offer for all outstanding shares in Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy S.A. with the intention to delist.

The outcome of this consideration is open, no decision has been made, and there is no certainty that a transaction will materialize, Siemens Energy said.

The move is seen as an expected next step after the German-Spanish wind turbine manufacturer recorded net losses of over EUR 300 million for two quarters straight.
