Bruchsal, September 28, 2007 - cdv Software Entertainment AG's new business model is making an impact not just in its sector: bigname investors are also putting their trust in the continuing success of the new cdv following its consolidation to become a full service provider. The Frankfurt-based private equity fund Brockhaus Private Equity recently secured 100,000 shares and a total of 239,800 partial debentures in cdv.
cdv represents a promising investment again
This investment was made possible by an OTC adjustment and options on convertible bonds recently issued by cdv. As a result, the Brockhaus Private Equity II fund acquired 100,000 shares held by a major stakeholder as well as a further 239,800 partial bonds. The private equity fund focuses on fastgrowing medium-sized businesses in Germany and Europe - a profile which, the investors believe, aptly sums up cdv in its new guise. Previous investments by Brockhaus Private Equity include the listed company Wirecard AG, which boasts an extraordinarily successful growth record and joined the Tec Dax in 2006.
Stockmarket experts anticipate major growth
"It was the business model paired with an experienced management that convinced us," declared Marco Brockhaus, founder and managing director of Brockhaus Private Equity. "In our opinion, cdv fills a market gap in the games sector that promises huge growth potential." At cdv, too, the commitment on the part of the fund's initiator is seen as entirely positive: "In Brockhaus Private Equity we have gained a strategically valuable institutional investor that takes the long-term view," commented cdv's CEO-designate, Christian Gloe. "This commitment to cdv not only corroborates our own perspective, but shows that cdv is once again an interesting investment prospect and can meet the standards of institutional investors."
