A team led by Cologne-based Private Equity lawyer Dr. Andreas Lenz, Partner at the Cologne office, advised Lenbach Equity Opportunities I SCSp (LEO I), a Luxemburg-based PE fund, on the sale of MMC group in Cologne.
MMC group was sold as part of a structured process, with Frankfurt am Main-based investment company NOVUM CAPITAL prevailing in the bidding process.
The core company of MMC group is MMC Studios Köln GmbH, which offers services for national and international TV, movie, and media productions. In Cologne-Ossendorf, MMC Studios Köln GmbH operates a large number of studios for movie, TV, and live events. In addition to the necessary ultra-modern premises, the company also offers other services required for productions and live events. Its sister company MMC Movies operates in the field of movie co-productions, providing special services for renowned national and international movie productions.
