BMH Bräutigam & Partner advises Gutscheine.de in the sale to RTL interactive

BMH Bräutigam & Partner has advised the shareholders of Gutscheine.de HSS GmbH in the sale of their shares to the RTL subsidiary RTL interactive GmbH. After the acquisition by the media group RTL Germany, founder Marcus Seidel still remains Managing Director of the portal.

Gutscheine.de HSS GmbH operates one of the largest German coupon portals. Founded in 2009, the internet portal with headquarter in Berlin offers one of the largest selections in the German internet with several thousand online coupons, actions, as well as regional vouchers. Well-known partners are companies such as Otto, Neckermann, Adidas or Amazon. With the entry into the coupon-business, the media group RTL Germany strengthens their transaction-based business and is expanding advertising-independent businesses. According to their own statement, the media group will, through the acquisition, participate in the strong growing E-Commerce market. With the consulting leading up to the sale of a further internet start-up, BMH Bräutigam & Partner expands its network in the Berlin start-up scene, which gets meanwhile worldwide attention and is even compared with the Silicon Valley. BMH Bräutigam & Partner has now a solid client base of web developers. This includes, among others, Sven Lubek, who most recently was advised by us in the sale of the online games marketer Covus Games to ProSiebenSat.1 Digital, a subsidiary of ProSiebenSat.1 Group, as well as in the sale of the online games publisher Capital Games to Bob Mobile AG, also a provider in the online games sector.
