ADVANT Beiten Advises MYPOSTER on Takeover and Exit of JUNIQE

Dusseldorf, 18 January 2022 – The international commercial law firm ADVANT Beiten has comprehensively advised the Munich-based e-commerce group MYPOSTER on the acquisition of all shares in Kollwitz Internet GmbH (JUNIQE), a successful Berlin-based poster start-up, from due diligence to the closing of the transaction. The parties have agreed not to disclose the transaction volume.

Founded in 2014, the Berlin-based start-up JUNIQE specialises in prints and posters by artists and is excellently positioned in the market. Since its foundation, JUNIQE has received more than 20 million euros in capital from shareholders, including well-known names such as Vorwerk Ventures, High-Tech Gründerfonds and the Cewe Foundation. The founders of JUNIQE leave the operational management but remain closely associated with the company in an advisory capacity. The JUNIQE location in Berlin and the brand will be retained. The number of MYPOSTER employees increases by 70 to 350 with the takeover.

MYPOSTER was founded in 2011 and has experienced rapid growth in recent years. The MYPOSTER group includes the brands myposter, Kartenliebe, ArtPhotoLimited and its own production company Printhouse. The takeover of JUNIQE is MYPOSTER's largest acquisition to date and represents a milestone for the company. MYPOSTER will further develop JUNIQE's business model strategically and innovatively and thus expand it into an even stronger provider in European e-commerce.
