Carlsquare advises Berlin-based software company PikeTec on the investment by an ECM managed fund

17 Jun 2019

The German Equity Partners V (“GEP V” or the “Fund”) fund managed by the independent German investment company ECM Equity Capital Management GmbH (“ECM”) has invested in the Berlin software developer PikeTec GmbH (“PikeTec”). The rapidly growing software company specializes in testing and verifying the functionality of safety relevant embedded software for electronic control units, e.g. relating to intelligent driver assistance systems. Together with ECM, the company founders Dr. Eckard Bringmann, Andreas Krämer and Dr. Jens Lüdemann will continue to drive PikeTec’s successful development and leverage the growth potentials offered by the increasing automation and digitization in the automotive sector. The founders, as managing partners, will continue to manage and develop PikeTec in the future.

ECM has extensive experience in implementing growth and internationalization strategies, proven by previous investments in industries relevant to PikeTec, such as industrial automation, medical and automotive, and software.

In partnership with ECM, PikeTec will continue its growth path, broadening its market approach and following a focused internationalisation. PikeTec intends not only to increase the value creation in the currently served automotive industry but also to enter currently not yet served industries – both on a global scale. Jens Lüdemann, Founding Partner and CEO of PikeTec, said: “We are proud that TPT has established itself as a leading application in a fast-growing market. We owe this particularly to the adaptability of the product and the innovative strength of our team. We now want to use this competitive advantage to grow even more decisively. With ECM, we have found an entrepreneurial partner who understands our business and has both relevant experience and a long track record of successfully implementing growth strategies.”

Florian Kähler, Partner and Managing Director of ECM, added: “PikeTec has an impressive technology, whose application possibilities are far from exhausted and for which we see extremely interesting growth potential worldwide. Growing beyond the core market and the core industry is always a critical step for founders. As a growth partner for medium-sized companies, we have successfully supported this process many times and look forward to accompanying PikeTec on this path with our knowledge and our industrial network.”

Carlsquare acted as the exclusive financial advisor to PikeTec.
