Highlights

  • Bajaj Auto owns 48 per cent stake in KTM AG
  • Bajaj manufactures a range of KTM RC and Duke models in India
  • The KTM 125 Duke to 390 Duke and RC range are all made in India

Bajaj Auto has restarted talks to transfer its stake in KTM AG to the Austrian motorcycle brand's parent firm Pierer Mobility AG. The move is being considered to simplify the shareholding pattern by transferring the stake to a new holding company. Currently, Pierer Mobility AG (PMAG) and Bajaj Auto's 100 per cent Netherlands subsidiary, Bajaj Auto International Holdings, have 51.7 per cent and 48 per cent stake respectively in KTM AG. Pierer Industrie AG holds over 60 per cent stake in Pierer Mobility AG. As part of the proposed transaction, Pierer Industrie AG and Bajaj will move their stakes in Pierer Mobility to a new company PTW Holding AG.

"The proposal envisages Bajaj swapping its 48 per cent stake in KTM AG for a stake in PMAG and both Pierer Industrie and Bajaj moving their stakes in PMAG to a new 'Holdco' between them," Bajaj Auto said in a regulatory filing.

If a decision is taken to execute the transaction, Pierer Mobility AG will consider the legal and economic requirements and conditions of capital increase by contribution in kind from the existing authorised capital of the company. The discussions though are at a very preliminary stage and the disclosure is being made only by way of abundant caution, the company said in the regulatory filing.
