Blue Tree Group investment banking advises The Social Chain Group AG

Munich – December 2019: Munich based investment banking boutique Blue Tree Group is pleased to announce that it acted as financial advisor to the integrated social media company The Social Chain Group AG.

As part of this process, Blue Tree Group consolidated the company’s structure to fund the holding company The Social Chain Group AG whilst successfully completing its capital increase. Blue Tree Group has conducted company valuations for numerous firms from different sectors, i.e. social media and consumer products. Blue Tree Group’s company valuations were further used in the process of the merger which took place through the contribution of all shares of The Social Chain Group AG as a non-cash capital increase at Lumaland AG. This process was completed on 9 October 2019 resulting in the newly merged company The Social Chain AG.   

This is Blue Tree Group’s third completed valuation project in the Technology /Media/ Telecommunications (TMT) sector in 2019, underlining Blue Tree Group’s expertise in these areas.

“Blue Tree Group’s company valuation experience and its in depth media expertise smoothed the path to complete the process effectively in a short time frame.“ comments Dr. Georg Kofler.

Dr. Michael Daldrup, the Managing Director of Blue Tree Group added: “The project’s complexity in terms of a tight time schedule on one hand and the enormous diversity of different media businesses on the other was quite challenging. It was great fun to work with the team of the Social Chain Group on financial and strategic aspects. The TMT team of Blue Tree Group felt thrilled to have contributed to the success of such a fantastic venture.”
