Rautenberg & Company advises Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG on the sale of Docufy GmbH to Elvaston Capital Management.
Our team advised Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg) on the sale of Docufy GmbH to the private equity company Elvaston Capital Management. Both signing and closing of the transaction took place on 31 August 2021.
Heidelberg is a global market and technology leader in the printing industry with a turnover of around EUR 1.9 billion and more than 10,000 employees. The sale of Docufy took place in the context of the firm’s focusing on core activities. Thus, Heidelberg's future software focus will be on the expansion of cloud-based applications and platforms for the printing industry.
Docufy, based in Bamberg, Germany, develops high-quality and comprehensive information management software solutions for companies. The focus is on the Docufy software suite around the core product Cosima, which is currently being developed to an Industry 4.0 Info Hub. In addition, Docufy is expanding its strategic partner network and driving its international growth. Docufy was acquired by Heidelberg in 2017; software activities were transferred from Heidelberg in 2019, sensibly complementing the existing portfolio.
Elvaston Capital Management is an entrepreneur-led private equity firm specializing in medium-sized transactions in the technology sector.
Our team around Jens Moritz advised Heidelberg throughout the entire process and led the complete M&A process up to the successful closing of the transaction.
