BMH BRÄUTIGAM advises on investments of € 248 million capiton Quantum fund in two high-tech companies
BMH BRÄUTIGAM has advised financial investor capiton in the context of the newly launched € 248 million fund "capiton Quantum" on the acquisition of shareholdings in the leading German high-tech companies Raith and AEMtec.
Both companies were originally acquired by the capiton V fund. Raith, a leading equipment manufacturer in the nanotechnology sector, has already been part of the capiton portfolio since 2016, while capiton invested in AEMtec, a full-service provider for state-of-the-art micro- and optoelectronic systems, in 2019.
In addition to existing and new capiton investors, high-profile blue-chip secondary investors led by Eurazeo and Unigestion have also invested in capiton Quantum. capiton Quantum is providing additional capital to the two companies so that strong organic and inorganic growth can take place. During the existing ownership capitons, Raith and AEMtec have already expanded their capacities and advanced internationalization and technology expansion.
Background: BMH BRÄUTIGAM has been advising capiton for more than two decades on transactions and investments as well as regular leveraged buyouts and strategic acquisitions - with capiton Quantum now also for the first time in the context of a continuation fund project. The BMH BRÄUTIGAM team has previously advised on the acquisition of Raith by capiton V and has also been advising Raith and AEMtec on an ongoing basis.
