AEQUITA to Become New Owner of the IFA Group


The successful restructuring of the IFA Group has laid the foundations for its takeover: The Munich family office AEQUITA is to acquire this automotive supplier from Haldensleben in Saxony-Anhalt. This financial investor will thus actively support the continuing growth strategy of the drive shaft and joint specialist.

Dr. Arno Haselhorst, CRO and CEO of the IFA Group, is delighted to have found such an ideal new owner in AEQUITA: “The successful restructuring measures of the past few years were an essential prerequisite in order to attract a new strategic investor. The IFA Group is very well positioned on the market, and AEQUITA will enable it to exploit its growth and innovation potential even more effectively.”

Christoph Himmel, AEQUITA’s managing partner with responsibility for the transaction, likewise expects to be able to consolidate the IFA Group’s leading global position even further: “The IFA Group is a long-established brand in the German automotive supplier industry. A large number of well-known automobile manufacturers rely on its technological expertise as well as its employees’ many years of experience.” The transaction is expected to be completed by the end of March.
