EMERAM invests in Garderos GmbH and supports the company in its next growth phase

Munich (DE), 10 June 2024 - Funds advised by EMERAM have acquired a majority stake in Garderos GmbH (Garderos), a provider of ruggedised router solutions for secure data communication and optimal connectivity in harsh environments. EMERAM is one of the leading growth investors for medium-sized companies in the German-speaking region.

Garderos was founded in 2002 as a spin-off from Siemens AG and is based in Munich, Germany. Building on the experience gained from a large number of projects, Garderos has developed into a market-leading systems supplier capable of delivering large quantities of ruggedised routers with proprietary, application-optimised software to operators of critical infrastructures (energy networks, traffic monitoring) and telecommunications companies worldwide. The robustness, reliability and long service life of the routers guarantee customers a high level of security and the long-term availability of the products a high level of investment protection. Garderos is able to implement customised solutions quickly and flexibly, and its own Garderos Router Management System ensures that even large router fleets can be managed efficiently and securely.

Hermann Knauer, CEO of Garderos, said: "We have already achieved great success and high growth rates in recent years and have convinced our customers of the quality and, in particular, the reliability of our products. We are now at the beginning of a new growth phase with the increasing digitalisation, especially in the energy industry. We are confident that in EMERAM we have found a partner who will provide us with the best possible support to maximise our additional growth potential and keep our company on track for long-term success. On behalf of the entire company, I would like to take this opportunity to thank our former major shareholder for the excellent cooperation. We are delighted that Dr Hinder will remain on board as a shareholder and member of the Advisory Board”.

Dr Ruprecht Puchstein, Principal at EMERAM, said: "We are very pleased to support Garderos as part of our business development partner approach over the next few years and to make a significant contribution to the digitalisation of critical infrastructures. Our team has in-depth expertise in business models based on high-tech products with a strong software component and will support the management as a partner in the further development of the company. Garderos is a perfect fit with our investment strategy. The company has positioned itself as a quality leader in an attractive, high-growth niche. The acquisition underlines our ability to identify outstanding companies in interesting niches and to become a preferred growth partner through our business development approach”.

EMERAM was advised by Rautenberg & Company (commercial), Noerr (legal), FGS (tax) and A&M (financial). Garderos and its shareholders were advised by Jones Day (legal).
