Existing and new investors provided, as part of a parallel financing round, the financial resources for the payment paid in addition to the exchange of shares.

The team consisted of Peter Hsu, Sarah Vettiger, Tiffany Ender, Matej Teslar, Marwan Ezzat (Banking & Insurance/M&A), Rehana Harasgama (Data Protection), Ruth Bloch-Riemer, David Weimann (Pension and Social Security), Frédéric Mancosu, Michael Rohrer (Notarial Services) and Tobias Rebmann (IP/IT).
