The Bonn-based company RailWatch GmbH, a provider of innovative rail vehicle monitoring concepts based on camera and sensor technology, has strengthened its position with a new shareholder, Agartha Fund LP from Abu Dhabi, through a capital increase of EUR 3.5 million. For RailWatch, this entry enables the strategically important expansion into countries such as Russia, Kazakhstan, Ukraine and China.
TIGGES advised RailWatch on the transaction. In addition to the comprehensive corporate reorganisation of the partly international group of companies and the conduct of negotiations with the team of investors, the scope of advice also included the accompanying tax advice and structuring as well as the finalisation of the transaction. Furthermore, TIGGES was in charge of the post-transaction process.
TIGGES regularly acts for the company, which was founded in 2015, and the rail industry expertise in particular was the decisive factor for RailWatch to work with an interdisciplinary team from TIGGES on this transaction as well.
