Lennox, a leader in energy-efficient climate-control solutions, announces it has entered into an agreement to sell its European commercial HVAC and refrigeration businesses, headquartered in Lyon, France, to funds managed by Syntagma Capital. The closing of the transaction is subject to obtaining required consents, works council consultations, and customary closing conditions. The transaction is expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2023.
Alok Maskara, Chief Executive Officer, Lennox, said, “The agreement to sell the European commercial HVAC and refrigeration business will be the best way to bring closure to our portfolio simplification decision announced last year. Our focus on North America will enable us to better serve our customers and achieve growth acceleration and margin resiliency.”
