BBregal Unternehmerkapital (“BU”) became a shareholder in Theobald Software GmbH (“Theobald Software”) on 01.03.2022. As part of the transaction, shareholder Patrick Theobald has taken a reinvestment and the management team has acquired an equity interest in Theobald Software. The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions and is expected to close by the end of February 2022.

The transaction process was completed in only two months from approach to signature due to the exceptional commitment of all parties involved. In doing so, Loy & Co’s mandate included structuring the divestment process, drafting transaction-relevant documents, researching and identifying suitable prospective buyers, valuing and negotiating the purchase price, structuring due diligence and assisting with contract negotiations until the transaction was successfully completed.

“With BU, we are pleased to have gained a shareholder whose values and ideas for the further development of Theobald Software are entirely in line with ours,” says Peter Wohlfarth, Managing Director of Theobald Software. “The goal of the partnership is to drive the growth, which has continuously evolved over the past nearly 20 years since the company’s founding, across additional target markets. In addition, the focus is on investing in research and development to further expand the technology leadership in the field of SAP interfaces.”

Patrick Theobald will retire from the management, but will remain involved in the company. In addition, Patrick Theobald will continue to contribute his technical expertise as a consultant.

“In the area of SAP interfaces, we already offer the technically leading product solution for our customers; at the same time, the increasing digitalization in the global economy still ensures excellent growth potential,” says Patrick Theobald. “I am convinced that with additional financial strength and expertise, Theobald Software can now take even greater steps towards growth.”
