Top ThyssenKrupp shareholder opts out of cash call

  • The balance of power shifts at ThyssenKrupp (TYEKY, TYEKF), as the Krupp foundation, which has controlled the company since the 1960s, sat out a capital increase today due to a lack of cash, diluting its stake and losing its veto right.
  • Cevian Capital Partners, an activist shareholder already with a 6%-plus stake and which has invested in several other European companies, purchased a "significant" part of the shares on offer but less than half of the entire placement volume, WSJ reports.
  • Germany's largest steelmaker has been undergoing a deep restructuring as it grapples with weak demand and overcapacity in the European steel industry.
