Paragon Partners acquires majority stake in UNICEPTA

8. March 2018

Munich — Munich-based private equity firm Para­gon Part­ners has acqui­red a majo­rity stake in UNICEPTA. Pesca Private Equity initia­ted the exit through the previous group of share­hol­ders around the Ippen media group, former Bertels­mann execu­tive Hart­mut Ostrow­ski and other inves­tors in an inter­na­tio­nal bidding process. The manage­ment team remains invol­ved in the company.

UNICEPTA is one of the leading Euro­pean service compa­nies for stra­te­gic media moni­to­ring, media response analy­sis and intel­li­gent issue manage­ment concepts. UNICEPTA has achie­ved an average annual increase in sales of around 18 percent over the last ten years. In the 2016/2017 finan­cial year, sales amoun­ted to €31.5 million. The company works for around 300 custo­mers, inclu­ding two-thirds of the DAX compa­nies and nume­rous other multi­na­tio­nals. UNICEPTA is also the leading provi­der in Germany for so-called news­room solu­ti­ons in corpo­rate communications.
