Odewald KMU II acquires a stake in ctrl QS GmbH

10. Septem­ber 2021

Cologne/ Berlin — The invest­ment company Odewald KMU II has acqui­red a majo­rity stake in ctrl QS GmbH Roll­out Manage­ment for Digi­tal Projects. Odewald was advi­sed on this tran­sac­tion by Heuking Kühn Lüer Wojtek.

Toge­ther with the foun­der, Mirja Silver­man, who will conti­nue to lead the company as mana­ging part­ner, the successful growth course of the company is to be contin­ued. The parties have agreed not to disc­lose the econo­mic details of the invest­ment. Odewald KMU was thus able to realize the ninth invest­ment for the current second Odewald KMU Fund.

ctrl QS is a specia­li­zed service provi­der that advi­ses and opera­tio­nally supports multi­na­tio­nal corpo­ra­ti­ons and brands in process, tool and change manage­ment in the context of digi­tal projects. In its core market, ctrl QS alre­ady occu­p­ies a leading market posi­tion and, thanks to its exten­sive exper­tise, has a wide range of oppor­tu­ni­ties to expand its product range and conti­nue to grow successfully both natio­nally and inter­na­tio­nally. A key compe­ti­tive advan­tage of ctrl QS is its in-depth under­stan­ding of custo­mers’ proces­ses and chal­lenges, as well as its many years of expe­ri­ence in successfully hand­ling cross-system, digi­tal projects. In addi­tion, further growth is to be reali­zed through targe­ted add-on acqui­si­ti­ons. The Berlin-based company was foun­ded in 2009 and today employs over 100 people.
