Heuking Kühn Lüer Wojtek advised DATAGROUP SE on the acquisition of Hamburg-based IT service provider HanseCom Gesellschaft für Informations- und Kommunikationsdienstleistungen mbH and supported the client throughout the transaction.
HanseCom Gesellschaft für Informations- und Kommunikationsservices mbH was a joint venture of Siemens AG and Hamburger Hochbahnen AG. The company operates IT infrastructures for mid-sized enterprises and advises clients on developing their IT. The company provides managed services for all areas of IT operations. It has particular expertise in cloud and SAP services as well as in application management and thus strengthens DATAGROUP's full-service portfolio CORBOX. DATAGROUP also strengthens its on-site presence in Hamburg and northern Germany with the acquisition.
DATAGROUP, headquartered in Pliezhausen, is a leading German IT service provider. More than 1,700 employees at sites throughout Germany design, implement, and operate IT infrastructures and business applications.
This being already the company's 19th acquisition since its IPO in 2006, DATAGROUP has a long history of acquiring companies and business units. Including the current acquisition, DATAGROUP has regularly been advised and supported on these transactions by Dr. Rainer Herschlein, lawyer at the Stuttgart office of Heuking Kühn Lüer Wojtek, and his team.
