Düssel­dorf — A Deloitte Legal team led by Düssel­dorf-based corporate/M&A lawy­ers Michael von Rüden (Partner)and Thilo Hoff­mann (Coun­sel, both lead) advi­sed HM3T GmbH and its share­hol­ders on the sale of Dres­den-based tele­ma­tics company Yellow­Fox GmbH to a private equity fund mana­ged by ECM.

As part of the tran­sac­tion, the manage­ment and the previous share­hol­ders of Yellow­Fox were inte­gra­ted into the acqui­ring company in a way that was essen­tial for all parties involved.

Toge­ther, the part­ners aim to further drive YellowFox’s growth, parti­cu­larly in the area of modu­lar, cloud-based SaaS soft­ware solu­ti­ons for digi­tal fleet and property manage­ment, tele­ma­tics solu­ti­ons and other product inno­va­tions, acquire new custo­mers and expand sales partnerships.

In the imple­men­ta­tion of the project, the Deloitte Legal team was able to draw on the exper­tise gained in the course of accom­pany­ing a large number of tran­sac­tions in the IT and tech envi­ron­ment, thus contri­bu­ting to a success­ful course of the project for all parties involved.

The close coope­ra­tion with colleagues from BSKP and Deloitte Tax as well as the Berlin M&A advi­sor CARL enab­led compre­hen­sive inter­di­sci­pli­nary advice on all commer­cial, legal and tax aspects essen­tial to the transaction.
