Strengthening Data Respons’ position within software development and industrial digitalisation

Munich, 3 July 2019 - Data Respons ASA has today signed an agreement to acquire 100% of the shares in DONAT group GmbH (“DONAT”), a German R&D Services company headquartered in Ingolstadt with more than 140 employees. The company is a leading niche provider of SW solutions and specialist services within software development and architecture, system integration and test management as well as business critical R&D IT services (DevOps).

ARTHOS acted as exclusive financial adviser to Data Respons in this transaction. ARTHOS provided full buyside advisory services including evaluating strategic goals to define ideal search criteria, pursue an extensive company screening process, analyzing more than 30 potential strategic partners, arranging management meetings and driving the subsequent M&A process including co-ordination of the due diligence and contract negotiations.

- With this transaction, we continue to strengthen our position in Germany, the largest industrial market in Europe and strategically important for Data Respons. Digitalisation and connection of vehicles, transformation of powertrains, increasing environmental- and security requirements are challenging the automotive industry to innovate at a faster pace than before. In order to keep up, the industry is investing heavily in advanced software and data-driven tools supporting an efficient development and testing of new platforms. DONAT’s deliveries are highly specialised software services and represents a business-critical part of the customer’s development process for some of Germany’s leading automotive brands, says Kenneth Ragnvaldsen, CEO of Data Respons.

Both companies provide specialist services and develop niche software solutions in close cooperation with our industry leading customers. At DONAT, we focus on recruiting the best talents with a passion for technology and working in multidiscipline teams, says Hans Donat jr., CEO of DONAT group.

- We are pleased to welcome DONAT group into the Data Respons family.
