One of the most successful VC-exits in Austria within the last few years

PONTIS Venture Partners together with all the other shareholders of UC4, the founder and majority owner Franz Beranek and co-invested Venture Capital firm Capexit, have been preparing a structured sales process during the last few months supported by the international M&A-firm Corum Group and the Austrian law firm Schoenherr.

The transaction is subject to regulatory approvals.
