Strong 2020 for Carlsquare – 36 deals – €2.5bn transaction volume

29 Jan 2021

Even in a challenging market environment, Carlsquare has proven that it is a reliable partner for growth companies and innovative medium-sized companies. As the number one sell-side advisor in the Mergermarket league table, no other M&A advisor has advised more German companies on their sale than Carlsquare.


18 transactions alone involved private equity participation. With our team of 70+ employees, we have been a proven point of contact on the sell- and buy-side for many years. The founders of Ankerkraut gave a nice insight into our work in this podcast. (in German)

Our lighthouse transaction was the sale of Telia International Carrier to Polhem Infra. A complex corporate carve-out (900m EV), that was executed within 9 months and thus made an extensive contribution to building a digital silk road under European leadership.

In addition to our established Consumer Internet, Software, Life Sciences, Industrials and Business Services sector teams, the Energy Sector Group will be added in 2021 under the leadership of our new partner Andreas Zetzsche – long-time head of the M&A division at RWE AG.

We are looking forward to an exciting 2021 with a full pipeline of clients with strong growth perspectives. If you are planning a transaction, please do not hesitate to contact us and we will live up to our claim: Closing Deals.
