*HELLA sells relay business to Hongfa*

*Automotive supplier aligns electronics business even more strongly in line
with the automotive market trends of electric mobility and autonomous

*Lippstadt/Xiamen, 12 November 2019.* The lighting and electronics
specialist HELLA is aligning its electronics business even more closely

Against such a backcloth, HELLA will now sell its existing relay business to

expected to close by the end of the year, with the price being around EUR 10
million. As a result, approximately 280 employees will transfer to Hongfa.

"In the years to come, we want to concentrate even more strongly on the
central future topics of the automotive industry," explains HELLA CEO Dr.
Rolf Breidenbach. "We see these topics as being primarily those of electric
mobility and autonomous driving. So we are delighted to have found in Hongfa
an experienced partner who will successfully further develop our relay

Guo Manjin, Chairman of the Hongfa Group, explains: "The acquisition of
HELLA's relay business will enable us to further expand our market position
as one of the world's leading relay manufacturers. The transaction will
enable us to secure the established market and product advantages of HELLA
in the area of relays and combine these with our distinctive management and
technology expertise and more than 35 years of relay expertise."

Hongfa is one of the world's largest suppliers of relays. In 2018, the
company achieved total sales of around EUR 1.2 billion.
