Munich, February 9th, 2015 – Bryan, Garnier & Co. GmbH (former Cartagena Capital) has advised the shareholders of OnePhone Germany, a Mobile Virtual Network Operator (“MVNO”), in the sale process. The Company was acquired by Netherlands-based Voiceworks.
Voiceworks, the fast growing VoIP and web technology specialist, is achieving success in the telecom world with its corporate Unified Communications (“UC”) and fixed-mobile-integration services from the cloud. The acquisition of OnePhone Germany is an important step for Voiceworks and ensures local presence in Düsseldorf, while also providing for broader reach throughout Germany.
Stijn Nijhuis, CEO of Voiceworks remarked: “more and more companies understand the benefits of cloud telephony; it is fast, scalable, requires no initial investment and is easy to integrate with mobile telephony. OnePhone shares this vision. We see great opportunities for our services and our market approach in Germany. Through this acquisition, we are making an important step in our expansion abroad.”
“Cartagena Capital has been supporting OnePhone since the start of the process. We were impressed with their commitment and reach to potential acquirers, both in Germany and beyond,” commented Kent Sander, Chairman, OnePhone Holding.
