LEONARDO completes share acquisition in HENSOLDT
and becomes anchor shareholder

Taufkirchen, 03.01.2022 - LEONARDO S.p.A. today completed the acquisition of 25.1 percent of the shares in HENSOLDT AG.

HENSOLDT now has three strong major shareholders on its side: the Italian aerospace and defence group Leonardo, the Federal Republic of Germany with 25.1 percent and the world's leading investment company KKR with around 18 percent (via Square Lux Holding II S.à r.l.).

Thomas Müller, CEO of HENSOLDT, said: "We are delighted to welcome LEONARDO on board as a strong partner and long-term anchor shareholder. We are working together on a number of pan-European programmes in a spirit of trust, see multiple opportunities for further cooperation and share the ambition to play a decisive role in the necessary consolidation of the European defence market. Europe needs more political and industrial cooperation - with our current set-up we can make a significant contribution to a competitive European security and defence landscape and a strategically autonomous Europe."

In March 2021, the German government acquired 25.1 percent of the shares in HENSOLDT from KKR, thus underlining the importance of HENSOLDT as a key technology partner and strategic supplier for Germany.
