Getting ready for the next growth phase

Deal Flash

The three founders of Listan GmbH have sold a majority stake in the company to Afinum. With this transaction, Afinum will bring its extensive experience in internationalizing business models to the table and support Listan in entering a new phase of substantial growth.

Listan operates in the highly attractive e-gaming and computer enthusiasts sector. With the rise of sports and game streaming platforms, computer gaming has come to the attention of a much broader audience.

In this competitively managed and complex sale process, Afinum was the ideal new majority shareholder for Listan GmbH. With its focus on medium-sized German companies, Afinum offers the necessary support for the next growth step. We are pleased to have found this excellent solution for the shareholders.
