YPOG advises the shareholders of Vimcar on the sale to Battery Ventures

Berlin/Cologne – YPOG comprehensively advised the shareholders of Vimcar GmbH on the sale of their shares to the global investment company Battery Ventures. 

Battery Ventures will accompany Vimcar as a global partner in the next growth phase with the aim of creating a pan-European provider of digital fleet management. 

The mobility revolution poses significant challenges for companies with their own vehicle fleets. In addition to rising operating costs, they must meet CO2 reduction targets, often by switching to electromobility, while of course ensuring mobility at all times. 

Advisors to the Vimcar shareholders:

Dr. Tim Schlösser (Lead, Transactions, Corporate), Partner
Dr. Malte Bergmann (Tax), Partner
Dr. Benjamin Ullrich (Transactions, Corporate), Partner
Dr. Benedikt Flöter (IP/IT), Associated Partner
Barbara Hasse (Transactions, Corporate), Associate
Dr. Karen Frehmel-Kück (Transactions, Corporate), Senior Associate
