As a result, the Baden-Württemberg-based energy group is indirectly divesting 49.9% of its portfolio of a total of 16 PV parks with a total capacity of around 600 MW. The parties have agreed not to disclose the purchase price.
A five-member Baker Tilly team assisted EnBW with the tax structuring and the financial model of the deal, a vendor due diligence as well as tax and business advice regarding the main purchase agreements. In addition to Lead Partner Alexandra Sausmekat, Attorney-at-Law/Tax Advisor, (Tax), the following were also involved: Director Jan Diehm, Attorney-at-Law, Manager Lucia Balazova, Tax Advisor, (both Tax) as well as Partners Frank Leiber, German CPA/Tax Advisor, and Senior Manager Christopher Harzheim (both Finance).
“We are pleased to be able to demonstrate Baker Tilly’s expertise in these red-hot topics. The increasing importance of renewable energies during the course of the project due to the Ukraine war was additional motivation for us and at the same time qualified us for future projects," says Sausmekat about the work in the project.
Last year, Sausmekat already accompanied EnBW together with an interdisciplinary Baker Tilly team on its entry into the Austrian e-mob service and IT provider SMATRICS.
