IMCap acquires majority stake in IntelliShop AG

IntelliShop AG, a software and solution provider for B2B eCommerce, will be supported by a new lead investor.

An investor consortium advised by IMCap has acquired the majority IntelliShop AG, a software and solution provider for B2B eCommerce.
The transaction will also make additional growth capital available to the Karlsruhe-based software company. The successful management team led by CEO Thomas Mondelli will remain on board. The parties involved have agreed to not disclose any information on the purchase price or further terms of the transaction.
The company will keep its focus on development and marketing of the IntelliShop eCommerce platform, a sophisticated software for the digitalisation of sales and trade processes in B2B markets. The product is well suited for customers that sell complex technical products. It is a highly efficient and differentiated solution for larger mid-sized companies, with a superior feature set, excellent time to market and attractive total cost of ownership. To further accelerate implementation times, IntelliShop has developed industry-specific product editions, optimised for the specific needs and processes of the respective sector. Editions include medical engineering, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering and construction industry as well as wholesale.
“Today many companies try to address their complex B2B eCommerce-requirements by using modified B2C-webshops. Full-fledged B2B eCommerce solutions differ significantly however,” says Jens Weiss, Partner at IMCap. “The standard feature set of IntelliShop‘s eCommerce platform already includes functions such as comprehensive connectivity to eProcurement systems and market places, hierarchical legitimation and authorisation systems for purchasing departments as well as customer-specific pricing mechanisms and rebate schemes. These common B2B-requirements are typically not supported by traditional B2C-shop systems.
“This is a clear strength of IntelliShop’s standardised approach. We consider IntelliShop to be very well positioned in the attractive market for B2B eCommerce-Software, currently growing at circa 15 per cent per annum.“
“I’m looking forward to grow and develop IntelliShop’s business together with our new shareholder IMCap,” says CEO Thomas Mondelli: “We will continue to support our customers with their international eCommerce activities and the complex challenges of successful digitalisation: Our software is an integral part of future customer interactions.”
