EG Group has entered into an agreement to acquire OMV's German network of 285 service stations in the South of the country. The deal is expected to close later in 2021 and will see the EG Group’s network become the third-largest in Germany. Success will be dependent on whether the heavily leveraged EG Group can extract the same level of value from its continental Europe network as it has done in the UK. For EG Group, could this be the end of a spate of debt-funded acquisitions and is an IPO next on the cards?
