BTV Multimedia GMBH is owned by Germany’s oldest equity fund, the listed Deutsche Beteiligungs AG. BTV Multimedia GMBH has shortly become a parent company for a number of companies with equipment and services aimed at broadband communication, including among others German braun teleCom GmbH and Anedis GmbH. DKT A/S complements these companies very well, and with its international set-up, it can contribute to the group’s overall growth and internationalization. Good growth in the industry is expected and further acquisitions are expected.

The seller of DKT A/S, Christian Emborg, remains CEO of DKT, but also becomes head of all the group’s activities outside Germany. Through his holding company CE Communications ApS he becomes a new shareholder in BTV Multimedia GmbH.

Sesam Partners advised the seller throughout the process and was responsible for the coordination of the very extensive commercial, financial, tax and legal due diligence investigations that the buyer carried out.
