Carlsquare advises in the sales process of D+S to Ströer

31 Jan 2018

Cologne, January 29, 2018 - CMP German Opportunity Fund II (CMP) sold its portfolio company D+S communication center to Ströer. In addition to inbound and outbound, D+S 360°’s sales and services include non-voice channels such as social media and chat, as well as selling processes such as back-office services and after-sales support. The D+S 360° customer portfolio includes well-known companies from the telecommunications, media, pharmaceutical, energy and finance/insurance sectors with a great deal of consensus for the existing customer portfolio of the Ströer Group.

Following the successful expansion of the Ströer product portfolio into the field of dialogue media, Ströer is underpinning its strategic objective of providing integrated offers along the marketing and sales network as well as along the entire customer journey. The strengthening of the highly performance-driven dialogue media division underscores Ströer’s strategic goal of being the most customer-centric media company. Through this step Ströer becomes one of the leading providers of dialogue marketing services in the German market.

At the same time, Ströer announces the acquisition of DV-COM, another company in the customer care segment. With the acquisitions of DV-COM and D+S 360°, Ströer strengthens the new division created last year by further comprehensive and scalable services in customer communication and the product portfolio for the acquisition of overall business processes. Ströer expects an annual sales contribution of approx. 125 million euros through the acquisitions.

“The acquisitions of DV-COM and D+S 360 are real landmark transactions for our young media dialogue business. With our strong and scalable dialogue media platform, we are adding significant value for our customers and thus the requirements for further profitable and sustainable growth of our company. “ Udo Müller, founder and co-CEO of Ströer.

“After the long and intensive support from CMP, we are very happy to successfully transfer D+S into a long-term partnership with Ströer. With Ströer we have found a partner for the future who can further develop the company and create the best conditions for our more than 3,000 employees and our clients.” Bernhard Magin – CEO of D + S communication center management GmbH.

“After intensive support from Carlsquare, we are delighted to announce that D+S has been successfully sold and are confident to have found the right partner for a successful future for D+S.” Dr. Ludger Vonnahme, CMP Capital Management Partners GmbH.

Headquartered in Berlin, CMP Capital Management-Partners GmbH advises investors on company investments in turnaround and transition situations. CMP supports equity investments by taking over operational management responsibility through their own employees.

Carlsquare advised the CMP German Opportunity Fund II exclusively on the D+S 360° transaction. The completion of the transactions is subject to the approval of the Federal Cartel Office and other customary closing conditions. The closing of the transaction is expected within the first quarter of 2018.
