Luther advises management buyout: Crealogix, a Swiss banking software group, outsources part of its service business in Germany

Coburg – The Swiss Crealogix Group has outsourced part of its German service business: the company Coperitus was incorporated in the course of a management buyout in the Bavarian town of Coburg, Germany. About 50 employees will move to this new company in January 2021. Luther Rechtsanwaltsgesellschaft advised the software company on the asset deal.


Crealogix will focus on its core business and provide software services in the data cloud (Software as a Service - SaaS) in future and, therefore, has decided to outsource the service division BaaS (Backend as a Service) as of January 2021. To this end, the company Coperitus GmbH with registered office in Coburg (Bavaria) was incorporated in the course of a management buyout.

Coperitus will continue the current service business. The Swiss Group and the German company Coperitus have at the same time agreed a long-term cooperation in German-speaking countries.

Markus Schäferhoff and Klaus Paul, who held leading positions with Crealogix at the Coburg site in the past, will be the principal owners of the newly incorporated company Coperitus. About 50 Crealogix employees will move to this new company by the end of this month.
