Cramo has completed its acquisition of German rental company Theisen Baumaschinen.

As part of the transaction, Cramo has issued 374532 new shares which have been transferred to Arrex Beteiligungs-GmbH, the owner of Thiesen. The major shareholders of Arrex are Alexander Renner and his brother.

Under the purchase agreement, the new shares are subject to a "lock-up" arrangement under which 50% of the stock cannot be cashed within a year and the remainder within two years.

Mr Renner will remain as a part-time consultant, with Cramo's chief executive officer, Vesa Koivula, acting as interim managing director of Theisen.
