Baar (CH), Braunschweig (DE), 26.01.2022 - Patrimonium Private Equity ("Patrimonium") and Wille Finance AG ("Wille"), both based in Switzerland, acquire a majority stake in IT company Netzlink Informationstechnik GmbH, headquartered in Braunschweig (DE). This shareholding also includes the 100% subsidiary Grouplink GmbH. This shareholding additionally applies to 50% of the joint venture Netzlink Polska sp. Z o.o. based in Gdansk, Poland.

The aim of the participation is to consolidate and implement the further growth and strategy of Netzlink and Grouplink through national and international acquisitions, and to strengthen the organizational structure - jointly with all participants.

The previous owners of Netzlink and Grouplink, Harald Lies and Sven-Ove Wähling, will remain strong shareholders and the sole managing directors. In this capacity, they will continue to successfully steer and lead the companies strategically and operationally in a dynamically growing market with increasingly complex challenges.

The new partners Patrimonium Private Equity and Wille Finance AG have extensive know-how within the software and IT industry, strong experience in the successful implementation of acquisition strategies and an extensive network of relationships.
