Quarton International was mandated by the group of 11 minority shareholders of REGIOCAST GmbH & Co. KG (“REGIOCAST”) to find a buyer for their shares. As part of a very complex legal process, a limited number of buyers were identified and approached. The experienced media buyer Moira Rundfunk GmbH and BO-Beteiligungsgesellschaft GmbH was found to be the ideal partner for REGIOCAST. The acquisition is for both an important part of the implementation of their radio strategy and leads to further consolidation of the Regiocast GmbH & Co.KG shareholder pool. The M&A team from CMS Hasche Sigle in Leipzig gave legal support throughout the whole process and negotiations.
Erwin Linnenbach, Member of the shareholder pool
