CMS ad­vised the share­hold­ers of AL­PORA AG on the sale of a ma­jor­ity stake...
Zurich, Septem­ber 2021 | A team of CMS Switzer­land un­der the lead of Stefan Brunnsch­weiler provided com­pre­hens­ive ad­vice to the share­hold­ers of AL­PORA AG on all leg­al as­pects re­gard­ing the sale of a ma­jor­ity stake to Ger­man-based Ser­afin As­set Man­age­ment. Duff & Phelps, A Kroll Busi­ness, served as the ex­clus­ive fin­an­cial ad­visor to the share­hold­ers of AL­PORA AG in con­nec­tion with the trans­ac­tion. AL­PORA AG, which was foun­ded in 2013, is act­ive in the sale of in­nov­a­tion ana­lys­is-based in­vest­ment mod­els to as­set man­agers in Switzer­land, Ger­many and the UK. Based on these in­vest­ment mod­els, cli­ents set up equity funds that have his­tor­ic­ally been able to gen­er­ate a risk-ad­jus­ted ex­cess re­turn on equity in­vest­ments. The Ser­afin Group in­tends to enter a new seg­ment with Ser­afin As­set Man­age­ment and es­tab­lish a di­git­al as­set man­age­ment busi­ness. It is en­vis­aged to enter the mar­ket with ser­vices for third-party cus­tom­ers in the second quarter of 2022 after ob­tain­ing the BaFin li­cense. In ad­di­tion to de­vel­op­ing and selling its own in­vest­ment solu­tions, the aim is to grow by ac­quir­ing spe­cial­ized as­set man­agers. The ac­quis­i­tion of a ma­jor­ity stake in the Swiss-based AL­PORA AG is the first step in this dir­ec­tion. The parties have agreed not to dis­close the pur­chase price of the trans­ac­tion. Stefan Brunnsch­weiler, Lead, Man­aging Part­ner, Glob­al Co-Head of the CMS Cor­por­ate/M&A GroupSamuel Fe­lix Gang, As­so­ci­ate, Cor­por­ate/M&AFlori­an Jung, As­so­ci­ate, Cor­por­ate/M&APas­cal Stock­er, As­so­ci­ate, Cor­por­ate/M&AAndrea Relly, Seni­or As­so­ci­ate, Cor­por­ate/M&AM­ark Ca­gi­enard, Part­ner, Tax­Chris­ti­an Gers­bach, Part­ner, Em­ploy­ment­Dr Mat­thi­as Kuert, Seni­or As­so­ci­ate, Cap­it­al Mar­ket­sTarik Salkim, Train­ee, Cor­por­ate/M&A
