Schellenberg Wittmer Advises the Shareholders of Xovis on the sale to Capvis


The fund advised by the Munich-based investment company EMERAM Capital Partners GmbH, has agreed to sell its majority stake in Swiss based Xovis Holding AG to Capvis Equity V LP, a fund advised by the Swiss private equity firm Capvis AG. The parties have agreed not to disclose any financial details of the transaction. The three founders and managing directors – Christian Studer, David Studer and Markus Herrli – will remain shareholders of Xovis and will continue to lead the company in the next growth phase.

Xovis is the worldwide market leader for the analysis of people flows and waiting times. It manufactures and develops tracking sensors and measurement tools as well as analysis software for people counting, people flow and in-store analytics. EMERAM acquired a stake in the company in August 2016. In close cooperation with the founding team, Xovis became the leading provider in its business segments and markets.

Schellenberg Wittmer acted as lead counsel to EMERAM and the management shareholders of Xovis. The team consisted of Lorenzo Olgiati, Oliver Triebold, Marcel Jakob, Karin Mülchi, Stefanie Maurer, Jessica Obrist and Alisa Zehner (all Corporate/M&A), Roland Mathys and Samuel Klaus (ICT), Michael Nordin and Petra Hess (Tax) and Philippe Borens (Banking & Finance).
