A Deloitte Legal team led by Düsseldorf-based Head of Dutch Desk and Corporate/M&A Partner Felix Felleisen has acted as legal advisor to Main Capital Partners in the context of their recent acquisition of German mid cap b+m Informatik AG from Allgeier Group.

For over 20 years, b+m Informatik AG has been successfully offering business solutions for the financial sector, where the company offers both standard products and professional services for banks, savings banks, insurance companies and other undertakings. The current management team of b+m Informatik AG around long term director Frank Mielke will stay on board and continue to propel the company forward. In this process they will be supported by the experts of Main Capital Partners who possess extensive know-how in the IT industry and the respective market setting from their earlier acquisitions.

Allgeier Group, headed by Allgeier SE (ISIN DE0005086300, WKN 508630) is one of the leading IT companies for Business Performance. The sale of b+m Informatik is in line with Allgeier Group’s increased focus on core areas.

The Seller and the Purchaser are convinced that the continuation of the successful business activities of b+m Informatik with its new owner offers an optimal environment for the company’s further development and growth.
