GOF advises Maxburg on its investment in acontis technologies

Munich, August 3, 2021 – Gütt Olk Feldhaus advised the Munich-based investment company Maxburg Capital Partners Maxburg Beteiligungen III on its investment in acontis technologies GmbH.

acontis technologies GmbH is a provider of EtherCAT OEM software. The company, which focuses on industrial communication and real-time systems, has developed into the global market leader in the 20 years after the company was founded, especially for OEM customers in the field of EtherCAT-based controls.

To further expand its excellent market position, the acontis founders Christoph Widmann and Stefan Zintgraf have included Maxburg to the group of shareholders. Both continue to be shareholders and will further develop acontis together with Maxburg. Heinrich Munz, a non-operational shareholder at acontis, sold his entire stake in the company to Maxburg as part of the transaction.

Maxburg Beteiligungen III, which is advised by Maxburg Capital Partners, is an investment company focused on the DACH region and concentrates on long-term corporate investments with the aim of permanent and sustainable increase in value. Maxburg invests in privately held and listed companies in various ways of capital structuring. The RAG-Stiftung is the anchor investor behind Maxburg Capital Partners, with capital commitments of €600 million.

GOF assisted Maxburg in all phases of the transaction process.
