Elevator proceeds must stay with Thyssenkrupp – steel labour boss

DUISBURG, Germany (Reuters) – Proceeds from a potential sale of Thyssenkrupp’s <TKAG.DE> elevator division must stay with the group, a leading labour representative said on Thursday, rejecting the idea of a special dividend for shareholders.

The comments by Tekin Nasikkol, who heads the works council of Thyssenkrupp Steel Europe, come a day after Thyssenkrupp’s supervisory board reviewed first expressions of interest for the division, which some analysts say could be worth up to 17 billion euros (15.41 billion pounds).
