The sale of fashion retailer Hess Natur to Capvis Equity Partners AG won’t be affected by workers’ opposition, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung reported, citing Matthias Siekmann, head of the Primondo Specialty Group, which is selling Hess Natur.
Capvis offered a higher price than HN Geno, a financial investor that was backed up by Hess Natur’s works council, FAZ said, citing people familiar with the transaction. There’s no reason to re-open negotiations with HN Geno, Siekmann was cited as saying.
