Guggenheim Partners, LLC and Landesbank Baden-Württemberg (LBBW) today announced that Guggenheim has agreed to acquire LBBW Securities, LLC, the U.S. broker/dealer of LBBW. The transaction, subject to FINRA review, is expected to close at the beginning of April 2010. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

“In LBBW Securities we saw a great opportunity to acquire a firm that complements our current business and broadens our reach," said Paul Friedman, chief operating officer of Guggenheim Securities, the investment banking and capital markets unit of Guggenheim Partners. “Our team has been working closely with LBBW to ensure a seamless transition, and we look forward to fully integrating and growing this business line.”

LBBW Securities was founded in 2007 as a wholly-owned subsidiary of LBBW, specializing in repurchase agreements, securities lending and other financing transactions. It is widely recognized for its dealings in U.S. government bonds, U.S. agency debentures and mortgage related securities, with a growing presence in both U.S. corporate and equity securities.

Robert Boyd, head of LBBW Securities, commented: “Guggenheim is known for its client focus and deep expertise, making this a great fit for LBBW Securities. Joining Guggenheim is an exciting development for our organization and our clients.”

LBBW will maintain its branch in New York and continue to support German companies and their subsidiaries in the United States and Canada; the branch will also remain active in U.S. commercial real estate finance. The product range of LBBW’s New York branch includes loans and interest rate and currency derivatives. LBBW’s Letter of Comfort, which was issued in favor of LBBW Securities, will terminate upon the closing of the transaction with Guggenheim, and LBBW Securities will be renamed Guggenheim Liquidity Services, LLC following the close of the transaction.
