With a team led by Hamburg-based partner Dr. Jörg Schewe, the commercial law firm of Heuking Kühn Lüer Wojtek advised the founders and sole shareholders of Syntela IT-Dienstleistungs GmbH (Syntela), Thomas Metzger and Rando Trapp, on the sale of shares to Hamburg Caldec Holding GmbH. The shares were sold in the context of a structured search for a suitable strategic shareholder partner. The parties agreed not to disclose the purchase price.
As part of arranging ownership succession, the founders and previous sole shareholders will continue to have substantial holdings, while the general managers, Rolf Boddenberg and Jens Hafner, will also join the circle of shareholders.
With more than 100 employees, Leipzig-based Syntela IT-Dienstleistungs GmbH is one of the leading providers of settlement services for statutory health insurance companies and has customer relations with more than half of the statutory health insurance companies. Caldec is a holding company specializing in services and bundles the business activities of the three shareholders Florian Wendelstadt, Hermann Wendelstadt, and Markus Metyas. Caldec actively supports Syntela in the expansion, be it by expanding the product portfolio, developing the organization, or developing new markets. Florian Wendelstadt and Markus Metyas together with the founding shareholders Rando Trapp and Thomas Metzger put a focus on continuity - both in relation to customers and to the staff of Syntela.
