Noerr advises BTV Multimedia Group on takeover of FIONIS GmbH
Noerr has once again advised BTV Multimedia GmbH on a strategic takeover, with Munich-based private equity expert Holger H. Ebersberger acting as lead partner.
BTV Multimedia Group is taking over the majority of shares in Austrian company FIONIS GmbH as part of a buy-and-build strategy. FIONIS is a system integrator in the fibre optics sector and supports its customers with a complete range of products and services, covering the planning and delivery of components to assembly, documentation and network operation.
BTV Multimedia GmbH, a portfolio company of the DBAG Expansion Capital Fund advised by Deutsche Beteiligungs AG, is now consolidating the activities of eight well-known international service providers, distributors and manufacturers from the broadband communications industry and is continuing its growth by acquiring FIONIS GmbH. This takeover was preceded by a number of other acquisitions that were also assisted by teams led by Holger H. Ebersberger. Last year, BTV Multimedia Group acquired the Danish broadband equipment supplier DKT A/S, Hamburg-headquartered Holm GmbH and Berlin’s ANEDIS GmbH. Holger H. Ebersberger had already provided the DBAG Expansion Capital Fund with legal advice on its investment in the BTV Group.
