PwC advise on the sale of the traditional bakery Ebner in Regensburg to Gäubodenbäcker Hahn Group

Nuremberg, January 09, 2018

PricewaterhouseCoopers Legal AG Rechtsanwaltsgesellschaft (PwC Legal) and PricewaterhouseCoopers GmbH Wirtschaftsprüfergesellschaft (PwC) provided the owners of Ebner, a traditional Regensburg bakery, with full legal and tax advice on the sale of the entire bakery business to Gäubodenbäcker Hahn Group.

Founded in 1896, the bakery Ebner is seated in Regensburg. With more than 25 branches and approx. 300 employees, it is considered to be one of the leading commercial bakeries in the region. For generations under family management, the business has enjoyed consistent growth and the network of branches now ranges from Regensburg to Straubing. The Ebner traditional bakery has frequently been awarded with prizes for the quality of its products – both on a local and national level. In the course of the retirement of the owners Alfons and Charlotte Ebner, the bakery is now being taken over by an equally traditional bakery, the Gäubodenbäcker Hahn Group.

Gäubodenbäcker Hahn Group of Geiselhöring in Lower Bavaria has been active in the bakery business for around 100 years and nowadays has more than 50 branches with a total of approx. 400 employees. The company combines state-of-the-art baking technology with time-honored recipes and on this basis will also be able to continue providing the traditional products of the bakery Ebner.
