Syz Capital has made a strategic controlling investment in Capture Media, a Swiss digital media and analytics service provider, in partnership with Saturnus Capital.
Capture Media is based in Zurich.
Capture Media’s founders Sandro Albin, Michel Lazecki and Franz d’Huc will reinvest and retain a minority share. They will continue to operate as directors and will be joined by a new CFO and COO.
Capture Media plans to expand substantially, especially in western Switzerland and via strategic acquisitions in Germany and Austria, according to a release. It will also enhance product capabilities leveraging industry experts, including a former Google executive, who is joining as advisor, the release said.
“This is an entrepreneurial company with healthy cashflow that is well-positioned to benefit from the expanding online marketing landscape,” said Marc Syz, Syz’s managing partner. “Currently, the DACH region is fragmented, offering several M&A add-on opportunities. We believe Capture Media Group is ideally suited to execute a buy-and-build strategy in Europe.”
Syz Capital’s operating partners Joscha Boehm and Philipp Schweizer will join the board of directors, alongside Marc Syz, and lead the M&A acquisition expansion strategy.
Syz Capital is a private markets investment and advisory firm based in Geneva.
Zug-based Saturnus is a partner-owned private equity firm focusing on investments in companies in Germany and Switzerland.
