McDermott advises Main Capital on acquisition for Blika Solutions
Frankfurt a.M. — Main Capital Partners acquires Audimex AG through Main Portfolio company Blika Solutions AB. The sellers are Audimex founders and board members, Stefan Berchtold and Markus Hövermann; both remain on the management team and retain a partial stake via Blika.
Main Capital Partners had acquired the Swedish software developer Blika in October 2021 and is now realizing its first add-on acquisition with the takeover of Audimex. The goal is to build an international software group specializing in solutions for governance, risk and compliance (GRC) processes.
Audimex AG has been developing and distributing software solutions for internal auditing and compliance since 1999. Blika Solutions AB offers a modular SaaS system that helps multinational companies comply with complex tax, legal and transfer pricing regulations.
Main Capital Partners is a leading software investor in Benelux, DACH and Scandinavia with over €2.2 billion in assets under management. Main has invested in more than 120 software companies to date.
The McDermott team, led by Norman Wasse and Dustin Schwerdtfeger, regularly advises Main Capital Partners on M&A transactions and financings.
