Mahindra Group acquires subsidiary Hisarlar’s farm equipment unit as it reshuffles business in Turkey
As part of the reshuffle, M&M subsidiary Erkunt Traktor Sanayi A.S. will acquire the complete agricultural machinery business of Hisarlar including select assets, intellectual property (IP) and brand use rights, M&M said in a statement on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, Erkunt and another Mauritius-based subsidiary of M&M sold their aggregate stake of 94.3% in Hisarlar for 6.6 million Turkish Lira (Rs 5.7 crores). With this, the Mahindra Group will exit Hisarlar’s metal fabrication business.
“Through this transaction, we have retained the core business of agricultural machinery and all the IP built over the years. This makes Erkunt Traktor a full range farm equipment OEM (original equipment manufacturer), ensuring that our dealers in Turkey and customers in Europe and other international markets continue to be serviced,” Hemant Sikka, president of the farm equipment sector at M&M said in a press statement.
Mahindra had acquired 75.1% stake in Hisarlar in 2017 to foray into the Turkish and European markets.
