ARQIS advises Agile Robots on acquisition of Yu Cobot

10. August 2022

Munich — ARQIS advi­sed Munich-based Agile Robots AG with its subsi­diary Agile Robots Hano­ver GmbH on the acqui­si­tion of the “Yu” cobot with all asso­cia­ted tech­no­logy compon­ents as part of an asset deal. The seller was voraus robo­tik GmbH in Hanover.

voraus robo­tik is active in the field of soft­ware deve­lo­p­ment of func­tio­nal soft­ware for robot systems and had acqui­red signi­fi­cant assets of the insol­vent YUANDA Robo­tics GmbH, based in Hano­ver, from its insol­vency admi­nis­tra­tor. YUANDA had deve­lo­ped, produ­ced and distri­bu­ted the colla­bo­ra­tive robot “Yu”. Now that voraus robo­tik wants to focus on the deve­lo­p­ment of soft­ware for robots, Agile Robots has acqui­red the hard­ware area as well as the soft­ware area regar­ding firm­ware and func­tio­nal safety, in parti­cu­lar all areas around the deve­lo­p­ment, produc­tion and distri­bu­tion of the cobot “Yu”.

Agile Robots Hano­ver GmbH is part of the global robot manu­fac­tu­rer Agile Robots AG. A spin-off from the Insti­tute of Robo­tics and Mecha­tro­nics of the German Aero­space Center, Agile Robots has been deve­lo­ping robots for a wide range of appli­ca­ti­ons from indus­trial manu­fac­tu­ring to logistics and medi­cal robo­tics since 2018.

Agile Robots once again relies on ARQIS. The Munich-based team led by Dr. Chris­toph von Einem has already suppor­ted several finan­cing rounds, advi­sed on the company’s global IP stra­tegy, and helped set up employee incen­tive programs and stra­te­gic part­ners­hip agree­ments with major companies.
