article from 27.07.2022

The majority shareholders of BSF Swissphoto AG, a European champion in the geodata industry offering a wide range of arial data and consulting services, were looking for a qualified management buy-in candidate who further develops the business.

The roots of BSF Swissphoto last back until 1931, at that time still under the wings of Swissair. By now the company is headquartered in Opfikon / Zurich and has subsidiaries in Germany, Norway as well as in Croatia. The company found a new anchor shareholder who also assumes a leadership role within the organization, whilst the previous majority shareholders are still engaged with the company and hence ensure a smooth transition.

Wineus managed the entire buy-in process from approaching qualified candidates, over to preparing and managing the due diligence process as well as negotiation and preparing all required contracts up until closing.
