A Cologne-based team comprised of Dr. Pär Johansson and Tim Remmel advised dogado GmbH, a portfolio company of private equity fund Triton, on the acquisition of Profihost AG.
dogado group includes the alfahosting, checkdomain, easyname, and busymouse brands. At more than 170 employees and about 250,000 customers, the group is a leading cloud hosting provider for business customers in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. Established in 2001, the company initially specialized in professional hosting services and later became one of the first German specialists for cloud-based business solutions, with its product range extending from classic web hosting to collaboration services and cloud platforms.
Hanover-based Profihost AG, owner-managed since its foundation in 1998, focuses on managed hosting solutions “Made in Germany,” offering innovative cloud-based server systems with a variety of high-quality services.
The Profihost AG takeover is another example of dogado GmbH continuing its buy-and-build strategy.
