A majority stake of Eperi GmbH has been sold to Equistone
Headquartered in the Frankfurt Rhine-Main, Germany, Eperi GmbH has grown since its foundation in 2014 into a leading provider of cybersecurity solutions for data protection and security in on-premises, hybrid and multi-cloud environments. The company has many years of experience in the field of data encryption for cloud applications and boasts an international customer base centering on larger companies from the finance, health and industrial sectors. eperi’s solutions enable customers to use all kinds of information technology (IT) infrastructure and software applications securely and within the law. eperi allows customers to fully exploit the advantages of the cloud without having to worry about data security, compliance and liability.
Under the ownership of the venture capital funds Evolution Equity, b-to-v Partners and the founder, eperi managed to accelerate its technological leadership and breakthrough in the market. With a significant influx of new customers and sales across different sectors and geographies, eperi was at an inflection point to find a new partner. While managing the corporate growth momentum and being faced with interest from different investors, eperi found the right partner in Equistone to further scale the organization and support the company in building a strong pan-European platform for future growth.
Dirk Damegger, Managing Director in Lincoln International’s Frankfurt office, and Don More, Managing Director in Lincoln’s New York office, commented, “The European cybersecurity market demonstrates investor interest in the sector. With its state-of-the-art technology and strong entrepreneurial culture, eperi will continue to be a successful pan-European growth story in the cybersecurity market.”
Lincoln successfully combined superb industry expertise with strong and insightful execution on the ground.
