DUESSELDORF, Germany (Reuters) - The RAG Stiftung will likely pay less than 1 billion euros ($1.1 billion) as part of a consortium it has joined to bid for the elevator division of Thyssenkrupp (TKAG.DE), two people familiar with the matter said.

This will give RAG, a foundation tasked with bearing the costs for the country’s exit from hard coal mining, a minor role in the consortium led by private equity firms Advent and Cinven [CINV.UL], the people said.

A RAG spokeswoman declined to comment.
