This post was originally published on this site

FRANKFURT (Reuters) – Thyssenkrupp (DE:) has agreed to sell its elevators division to a consortium of Advent and Cinven (), two sources close to the matter told Reuters.

The bidding group prevailed against a rival consortium comprising Blackstone (N:), Carlyle (O:) and the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board.

The decision, which followed a meeting of Thyssenkrupp’s management and supervisory boards, concludes the closely watched saga of Europe’s biggest buyout since 2007 and the world’s largest this year.

By far the German conglomerate’s most profitable business, Thyssenkrupp Elevator is the world’s fourth-largest lift manufacturer behind United Technologies Corp’s (N:) Otis, Switzerland’s Schindler (S:) and Finnish rival Kone (HE:).

Thyssenkrupp declined to comment.
