For DBAG, inexio has been a prime example of a successful private equity in-vestment, where we support a talented management team, promoting a very promising business model.
Back in 2013, when we acquired a minority stake in the previously family-owned business during the course of a capital increase, providing additional profit-participation capital, broadband communications was still the domain of pioneers – covering a segment with strong growth potential. We supported inexio closely over the following six years. Especially in such a fast-growing business, the management team keeps facing new challenges: with an experienced partner at their side, they can tackle such situations in a more targeted manner, and with less risks involved.
Nowadays inexio is one of the fast-growing, leading independent providers of fibre-optic connections in Germany. Together with its private equity investors, the company has established a fibre-optic network in rural and suburban areas across Southern Germany, thus significantly contributing to the build-up of local infrastructure there – allowing businesses to stay in their home region, creating local jobs.
