Initial situation

Founded in 2011 and based in Berlin, Paul Messdienste GmbH and supports well-known energy supply companies in several federal states with its know-how. Within only 9 years, the company was able to develop from a small business to an established service provider in the energy supply industry, which was able to ensure a very efficient order processing through a digitalized workflow management system. The company was characterized by rapid growth. On the Berlin market, Paul Messdienste GmbH covered around 85 percent of the total volume and thus had a near monopoly position. Shortly after the former owner received a clear assessment regarding the chances for a company sale by means of a digital company valuation by the CARL company value calculator, the discussions with the analysts and transaction experts of CARL deepened.


CARL acted as exclusive transaction advisor to the managing partner Mr. Sprenger in the sale of his company. CARL specifically conducted discrete negotiations with a selection of suitable investors in order to meet the entrepreneur's criteria regarding a suitable successor and to negotiate particularly attractive terms through a bidding competition. Since Paul Messdienste GmbH was a highly attractive target especially for buyers with a strategic focus on energy markets, the investor approach was successful within a very short time.


With the successful acquisition by the strategic investor AUCTUS Capital Partners AG, a satisfactory takeover was secured. The buyer integrated Paul Messdienste GmbH into an already existing portfolio of various companies. The Contus Group, which is also active in the energy market. The merger pursues the goal of orienting Paul Messdienste GmbH towards further growth. Mr. Sprenger continued to advise the buyers for about a year after the handover.

"Through a clear sales strategy and our extensive investor network, we were able to find the perfect strategist for our client within a very short time." - Pascal Stichler, Co-CEO at CARL
