FGvW Advises Software Company DORNER on Investment of GUS Group as new Majority Shareholder

FGvW has advised the shareholders of the German healthcare software specialist DORNER GmbH & Co. KG on the sale of shares to GUS Holding GmbH, which is part of the GUS Group.

The medium-sized, family-run DORNER GmbH & Co. KG was founded almost 40 years ago by Karl-Eugen Dorner and is today a leading provider of software solutions in the healthcare sector, in particular for laboratories, clinics and general practitioners. The two sons, Matthias Stromberger and Christian Dorner, who are also co-partners and hold management positions in the company, have also contributed significantly to this development.

In order to further strengthen the company, the shareholders succeeded in gaining the GUS Group as a new majority shareholder. GUS is the European market leader in software solutions for customers in the process industry.

Matthias Stromberger and Christian Dorner will jointly take over the management of the company from the beginning of 2022 and will continue to hold significant shares in DORNER GmbH & Co. KG. Karl-Eugen Dorner will continue to support the company in an advisory capacity. The company headquarters will remain in Müllheim/Germany.

The shareholders of DORNER GmbH & Co. KG were advised by our corporate/M&A team under the leadership of Meike Kapp-Schwoerer and Hendrik Thies. The company is a long-standing client of our healthcare practice.
