Germany’s SGL Carbon SE doesn’t see a full takeover as likely by Bayerische Motoren Werke AG and the carmaker’s heiress Susanne Klatten, Chief Financial Officer Juergen Muth told the Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung.
While BMW and other shareholders including Volkswagen AG and Voith GmbH are interested mainly in carbon fiber, Klatten is interested in other SGL products, Muth said. “We thus see our independence strengthened,” he told the newspaper. BMW and Klatten together hold about 44 percent in SGL.
