Frank­furt a. M./Nuremberg — Deut­sche Betei­li­gungs AG (DBAG) invests in ProMik Program­mier­sys­teme für die Mikro­elek­tro­nik GmbH (ProMik), a leading global systems provi­der of programming and test systems for elec­tro­nics series produc­tion. A fund advi­sed by DBAG will acquire the majo­rity of the shares from the foun­ding family, who will remain as mino­rity share­hol­ders by means of a reverse share­hol­ding. Alex­an­der Rosen­ber­ger and Jens Rosen­ber­ger are members of the foun­ding family and will remain with the company as CTO and CMO, respectively.

A Cham­pion from Nurem­berg — ProMik Serves a Global Market

ProMik was foun­ded in Nurem­berg in 1995 and has since deve­lo­ped into a family busi­ness with global rele­vance based on more than 5,000 successful projects. More than 60 employees deve­lop sophisti­ca­ted soft­­ware-driven solu­ti­ons for a market with double-digit annual growth rates. The scope of appli­ca­tion is very broad and covers the mobi­lity sector, such as in the field of auto­no­mous driving as well as the energy manage­ment of battery elec­tric vehicles.

In addi­tion, ProMik is active in consu­mer goods, e‑bikes and white goods. Indus­trial appli­ca­ti­ons and solu­ti­ons for the produc­tion faci­li­ties of elec­tro­nic assem­bly manu­fac­tu­r­ers, which serve to opti­mize test and programming proces­ses, round off the company’s profile.

“ProMik is opera­ting in a thri­ving market, and we are plea­sed to have access to such exci­ting invest­ment oppor­tu­ni­ties through our network. The company offers an excel­lent product port­fo­lio and the poten­ti­als are accor­din­gly oppor­tu­ni­ties for stra­te­gic acqui­si­ti­ons, this is where our exten­sive M&A expe­ri­ence comes into play”, says Jannick Hune­cke, member of DBAG’s Manage­ment Board.

Winfried Rosen­ber­ger, foun­der of ProMik says: “We are looking forward to the coope­ra­tion with DBAG and the oppor­tu­nity to work toge­ther on the further deve­lo­p­ment of our service port­fo­lio. We have built up the company over the past almost three deca­des, and along­side DBAG we are opti­mi­stic about the future because we have found the ideal inves­tor for the succes­sion plan­ning of our company.”
