Ebertlang finds new owner amid rise in regulatory compliance needs

Beyond Capital has agreed to sell SME software distributor Ebertlang to HQ Equita after less than two years in its portfolio.

Ebertlang specialises in infrastructure software for small and mid-sized companies in German-speaking Europe, providing programs for email archiving, back-up, IT-security, automation and continuity, as well as offering comprehensive training, consulting and service support.

HQ Equita partner Florian Wiemken said, “Ebertlang is the ideal partner for small and mid-sized companies to maintain their IT-infrastructure for the future and fulfilling ever-increasing regulatory requirements, such as legally compliant archiving of emails.

“Ebertlang is optimally positioned and set up for megatrends including digitization, IT-security, cloud services and regulatory compliance.”

Ebertlang founder and co-CEO Steffen Ebert added, “With the support of HQ Equita, we plan to drive our already-strong growth even higher.

“In addition to expanding our solutions portfolio in the software area, we plan to significantly strengthen our service offerings – which IT professionals in the German-speaking countries already value – in order to offer even better support to system houses in all matters relating to sophisticated infrastructure.”

HQ Equita will hold a majority stake in the company following the deal.
