News of disagreement between the management of Siemens and Osram and the deterioration of the relationship have been heard, and rumors of Siemens ’divestiture of shares have now come true. Osram expressed its gratitude to Siemens for its role as a core shareholder since Osram went public for many years.


Comment: The sale of equity by Siemens may be related to the management strategy of Osram ’s management, but more importantly, it focuses on its core business portfolio. In the future, Siemens should focus more on core businesses such as industry, energy, and medical services, and increase investment in electrification projects related to China ’s industrial development in China.
