In the course of its strategic business development, Süddeutsche Verlag GmbH, part of Südwestdeutsche Medienholding GmbH (SWMH), acquired the shares of BALVI GmbH.

Transfer Partners was the advisor for the entire buy-side process including the successful completion of the transaction.

With outstanding expertise and more than 20 years of experience in consumer protection, BALVI GmbH has a unique market position in the field of veterinary, feed and food monitoring. The modular software system BALVI iP is a nationwide standard for food and veterinary authorities and is used in nearly all responsible authorities.

“Due to the combination of relevant business content from HRJ with the process-oriented BALVI software, excellent opportunities to create further added value for our customers.”

The publishing group Hüthig Jehle Rehm (HJR) is an ideal partner under the umbrella of Süddeutsche Verlag which is also a strong player in the food and veterinary market with its wide range of print and online products. Thus, the acquisition provides comprehensive options in the joint product development and strategy.
