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.
