17/10/2019

Cologne – Hamburg-based private equity firm GENUI Partners and entrepreneur Klaus Weinmann (acting through his PRIMEPULSE investment holding company) have acquired Mindcurv Group GmbH, an Essen-based technology consulting company specialising in digital commerce.

The aim of the acquisition is to significantly broaden the range of services and further strengthen Mindcurv’s position in a consolidating market. The parties agreed not to disclose the purchase price. The transaction is currently awaiting approval from the competition authorities in Germany, Austria and Poland.

An international CMS team headed by lead partner Klaus Jäger advised the Mindcurv Group shareholders on all legal aspects of the complex transaction. In addition to the actual transactional support, the advice included tax structuring of the transaction, the structuring of the reinvestment and competition law aspects. During the transaction, the team also drew on international expertise from the CMS jurisdictions in Spain and the Netherlands as well as support from Indian law firm Vaish Associates.
