Weitnauer has provided legal advice to the shareholders of FMB Feinwerk- und Messtechnik GmbH on the sale of all shares to the listed company SAES Getters S.p.A. based in Milan. The purchase price of the shares in FMB Feinwerk- und Messtechnik GmbH, a leading international system provider for equipment for research with synchrotron radiation based in Berlin, amounts to EUR 8 million and is subject to any adjustments.

A Weitnauer team under the co-leadership of Prof. Dr. Hans-Eric Rasmussen-Bonne and Andreas Michael provided comprehensive legal advice in connection with the transaction.
