BMH BRÄUTIGAM advises Genuine German on strategic investment of Melchers

BMH BRÄUTIGAM has advised Genuine German, a Berlin-based company, on its strategic investment of Melchers.

Melchers is a global services company based in Germany with several subsidiaries in China. With more than 200 years of experience and a long history in China, the company has a deep understanding of the Chinese consumer landscape and local customer behavior, as well as a well-established distribution network. This makes Melchers the ideal partner for Genuine's innovative approach to ensuring brands can compete in the fast-growing digital economy in China. The goal of both companies is to strategically collaborate and complement each other's services to expand their respective offerings to existing and new customers with a focus on China. Through this cooperation, Melchers is expanding its portfolio in China in the area of e-commerce. Conversely, Genuine will benefit from Melchers' long-standing expertise and roots as a service provider in Greater China.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        Background: In addition to investors, BMH BRÄUTIGAM also regularly advises emerging startups during the founding phase and in subsequent financing rounds.
