GÖRG advises Zeitfracht Group on the acquisition of a substantial stake in VEMAG Verlags- und Medien AG

Cologne, 28.01.2021

Led by GÖRG Partner Dr. Michael Dolfen, the Berlin-based Zeitfracht Group has acquired a substantial stake in the Cologne-based publishing group VEMAG Verlags- und Medien Aktiengesellschaft ("VEMAG") from several shareholders. The transaction has already been cleared by the German Federal Cartel Office. Through this transaction, Zeitfracht will gradually take control of VEMAG. The parties involved are keeping the details of the transaction confidential. 

VEMAG owns well-known book brands such as Delphin (picture books, non-fiction, children's books), Naumann & Göbel (cookbooks, guidebooks, gift books) and Schwager & Steinlein (children's books). VEMAG also holds a stake in CE Community Editions, in which Bastei Lübbe also has a stake. Most recently, VEMAG achieved total sales of around EUR 62 million. 

With this transaction, Zeitfracht is continuing its steady growth. As in the past, Zeitfracht has again been advised by GÖRG on this transaction.

Only recently, GÖRG’s Associated PartnerChristopher Schiller also advised Zeitfracht on the conversion of its legal form into a partnership limited by shares (GmbH & Co. KGaA).
