E+H advised the founders of the tourism platform “Bergfex” on the sale of 60% of the shares in bergfex GmbH to Russmedia Equity Partners. The transaction was closed and signed on the same day. The parties agreed not to disclose the sales price.

“Bergfex” is Europe’s largest platform for mountain sports tourism in the Alpine region. The platform, accessible over the Internet and via app, is a reliable companion for mountain enthusiasts to plan tours, check weather, and book accommodations. All three founders, Markus Kümmel, Oliver Jusinger and Andreas Koßmeier, who have worked to build the company since 1999, will remain onboard both operationally and as shareholders. Within the network of Russmedia, a family business over 100 years old, “Bergfex” will continue to grow as an independent and founder-managed company, and continuously develop technically innovative services for mountain sports enthusiasts.

Bergfex was advised on the transaction by E+H under the leadership of partners Dr. Peter Winkler and MMag. Josef Schmidt, and associate Martin Zankl.
