Berlin-based start-up HomeToGo GmbH ("HomeToGo") operates one of the world's leading search engines for vacation rentals around the world. Our client, an international family office, held shares in HomeToGo through investment companies. By entering into a business combination agreement on 14 July 2021, HomeToGo and Lakestar SPAC I SE, the first German SPAC (special purpose acquisition company), agreed to combine the companies; upon closing of the transaction, the combined company will operate under the name HomeToGo.
Schilling, Zutt & Anschütz provided comprehensive advice on the De-SPAC transaction to the family office. Previously, Schilling, Zutt & Anschütz has acted for the family office companies in financing rounds of HomeToGo and further financing and investment transactions.
The Schilling, Zutt & Anschütz team comprised Dr Nicolas Ott, Dr Matthias Heusel (both lead, Venture Capital/M&A, Mannheim) and Jan Friedrichson (Venture Capital/M&A, Mannheim).
