June 2 - BWB Partners has entered into an agreement to sell its shares in Scan Global Logistics (SGL) to US based private equity group, AEA Investors.
AEA acquires SGL after a competitive process involving several industrial buyers. The management of SGL along with SGL's strategic partner in the USA - TransGroup WorldWide Logistics - will reinvest alongside AEA to become significant shareholders in SGL.
"We are very pleased to welcome a new long-term, dedicated shareholder group with global reach and profound insight into the logistics sector. This enables us to continue the growth path we have experienced during the past several years," said SGL group ceo Jesper Nielsen.
Nielsen joined SGL in February 2016, having held various management roles at DHL Global Forwarding over the last ten years, most recently serving as ceo for the Nordics and Baltics.
