Closeout of Europe's Lighting Brands Continues - Osram Initiates Sale of Luminaire Business

Seven years after buying Siteco and after forming the Osram Lighting Solutions business unit, Osram's management board has decided to divest its luminaires business. Because of numerous measures, the earnings position of the Lighting Solutions business unit has stabilized significantly. That allows Osram to initiate an organized sales process of the LS business unit.

"The sales of the LS business will result in a more strategic focus with regards to applications with high growth potential,“ said Olaf Berlien, CEO of Osram Licht AG. Talks will be held with interested parties for the luminaires business. The management board will provide an update on the progress of strategic plans for the company at the Capital Markets Day in November.

As part of its strategic realignment, Osram is refining its positioning with an increased focus on the growth markets in high-tech fields. The financial figures of the Lighting Solutions (LS) business unit, combined with the contribution of the Digital Systems business unit, are captured within the Lighting Solutions & Systems (LSS) reporting segment. The largest LS location is Traunreut, Germany, where luminaires e.g. for industrial and commercial sites and street and stadium lighting are produced.
