Augsburg, February 03, 2017 – Kontron, a leading global provider of Embedded Computing Technology (ECT), has successfully restructured its financing and thereby laid the foundation for the effective continuation of the companies’ operational restructuring. Financing was ensured through a majority of new financing partners, as well as a financing commitment from S&T AG. The M&A and Corporate Finance consulting company benten capital GmbH & Co. KG from Stuttgart supported Kontron during the financing process. The entire process was implemented within a period of only four months, from the initial contact, through the selection of the new financing partners and finally the implementation.
Hannes Niederhauser, CEO of Kontron AG, says: "The fast implementation of the financing was made possible by the excellent cooperation between the Kontron Finance department team, led by Dr. Thomas Riegler and Stefan Franke, with the consultants for the project team of benten capital and its responsible partner, Dr. Florian Eisele. With the successful completion of the financing, we can now fully concentrate on the implementation of our operational restructuring."
