Wittenberg, 16 November 2021 – Tesvolt GmbH, one of the world’s leading companies in energy storage technology for the commercial and industrial sectors, has concluded an approximately EUR 40 million equity capital funding round. The funds were provided by a consortium of investors led by the Liechtenstein Group – a group of companies owned by Liechtenstein’s princely family. This is another milestone in Tesvolt’s growth strategy. Tesvolt will use the financial resources to accelerate its international activities and pursue its focus consequently on innovative products.
Supported by Berenberg and UBS, the funding round managed to secure a prestigious lead investor in the form of the Liechtenstein Group, which specialises in sustainable and innovative business models. Among the other investors is a family office with an automotive background, Tesvolt can now further align itself with, especially in the field of inductive charging in the emerging e-mobility market. E.R. Capital Holding also took part in this funding round. The existing shareholder IBG-Fonds of the state of Saxony-Anhalt also participated in the financing round. After this funding round, the majority of the company shares remain in the hands of the two founders and managing directors, Daniel Hannemann and Simon Schandert. The incoming resources from the funding round will promote further growth and the expansion of internationalisation efforts. International markets already account for over 40% of revenues, putting Tesvolt in an ideal position for further international expansion.
