BEITEN BURKHARDT Advises Capitalmind on Strategic Transaction with Investec

Frankfurt am Main, 8 June 2021 – The international law firm BEITEN BURKHARDT has advised Capitalmind, one of Europe's leading independent M&A and corporate finance advisory firms, on the conclusion of a strategic transaction under which Investec Bank plc will acquire a landmark minority interest in Capitalmind. The parties have agreed not to disclose the transaction volume. 

The BEITEN BURKHARDT team, led by Frankfurt partners Dr Detlef Koch and Dr Mario Riechmann, once again demonstrated its extensive expertise in advising partnership-structured service entities. In addition to Investec entering as a minority shareholder, BEITEN BURKHARDT also assisted Capitalmind with the admission of further new partners to the advisory firm's shareholder base. 

With Investec as a minority shareholder, Capitalmind strengthens its international reach and sectoral M&A expertise and offers European medium-sized companies, among others, direct access to strategic buyers, financial investors and to target companies. In particular, German (mid-sized) companies with their traditionally strong international orientation will benefit in the future from a smooth service across the world's major economies. Through the transaction, Capitalmind can leverage the broader range of client solutions of the global Investec platform, such as international acquisition and growth financing, equity capital markets and debt capital markets, into its continental European client base. 

Advisors Capitalmind:

BEITEN BURKHARDT: Dr Detlef Koch and Dr Mario Riechmann (both in charge), Petra Bolle (all Corporate/M&A), André Suttorp (Tax, all Frankfurt am Main).
