  • 2008

mic AG, a Munich based invest­ment firm spe­cial­iz­ing in early-stage tech­nol­ogy ven­tures has acquired bm|t beteili­gungs­man­age­ment Thürin­gen GmbH as an invest­ment part­ner for one of its port­fo­lio com­pa­nies, Fisec GmbH. Both investors are con­fi­dent that the increased financ­ing will accel­er­ate the growth of Fisec and help it to estab­lish a larger inter­na­tional pres­ence and a lead­ing posi­tion among IT solu­tion providers.

Fisec GmbH offers cost-effec­tive IT solu­tions to con­tin­u­ously safe­guard the fiber optic data trans­fers. Its inno­v­a­tive tool ARGUS offers real-time fiber optic net­work mon­i­tor­ing and pro­vides effec­tive pro­tec­tion against tam­per­ing. It is by far the most effi­cient fiber optic mon­i­tor­ing sys­tem on the mar­ket. Its users gain a com­pet­i­tive advan­tage in pro­tect­ing their IT sys­tems and data against unau­tho­rized access, sab­o­tage or nat­ural dis­as­ters. The firm’s client base includes finan­cial insti­tu­tions, as well as, major cor­po­ra­tions in the telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions sectors.

Claus-Georg Müller, CEO of mic AG, views the 1,5 Mio. Euro bm|t invest­ment, as val­i­da­tion of the suc­cess of the mic AG busi­ness con­cept. “ The Fisec prod­uct is a flour­ish­ing exam­ple of the syn­ergy-effects exist­ing in the mic firms at our Meinin­gen Incu­ba­tor Cen­ter. mic AG pro­vides the nec­es­sary finan­cial sup­port in the start-up phase and then assists the com­pany in the expan­sion phase by using its net­work to locate strate­gic part­ners that can help the firm achieve inter­na­tional mar­ket entry and profit from unlim­ited growth poten­tial. We antic­i­pate see­ing increase in the value of mic AG through the devel­op­ments at Fisec GmbH.”

Accord­ing to the man­ag­ing Direc­tor of bm|t, Dr. Guido Bohnenkamp, “This co-oper­a­tion of the two invest­ment com­pa­nies not only por­trays a clas­sic win-win sit­u­a­tion and ben­e­fits the young tech­nol­ogy firm; it is also a good exam­ple of a highly prof­itable rela­tion­ship that makes best use of the exist­ing capa­bil­i­ties. We value mic AG’s knowl­edge and expe­ri­ence to har­ness inno­va­tion and know that we can all pros­per from future invest­ments in the emerg­ing technologies.”
