GÖRG advises software specialist ifesca on a financing round of EUR 7.2 million
GÖRG Partnerschaft von Rechtsanwälten mbB advised ifesca GmbH from Ilmenau in Thuringia on a financing round. In total, the IoT company, which develops and offers software products for industry and the energy sector, raised around EUR 7.2 million.
With Linde Material Handling GmbH, a subsidiary of KION GROUP AG, ifesca has won one of the world's leading suppliers of forklift trucks and warehouse logistics as an investor. With a stake of around €5 million and close to 20 percent, the intralogistics group will become the second-largest owner as well as a strategic partner of the software specialist. The KION Group plans to offer ifesca's AI-based software to its own customers as a holistic solution for their energy management.
ifesca's largest investor, bm-t beteiligungsmanagement thüringen, is participating in the current financing round with almost €2.2 million. bm-t invests profitably in start-up teams and companies in Thuringia and thereby finances innovation and economic growth in the Free State.
A GÖRG team led by Munich-based partner Dr Christian Schröder successfully advised ifesca on corporate and antitrust law matters during the financing round.
