After bmp media investors AG (ISIN DE0003304200) has just taken a share in muchasa GmbH at the end of June 2014, Mittelständische Beteiligungsgesellschaft Berlin-Brandenburg GmbH (MBG) has now also come on board at the operator of the www.perfekt-schlafen.de online store in a round of financing. In addition, muchasa has changed its name to sleepz GmbH. The round of financing, through which sleepz obtained a further six-figure sum, also involved bmp and other existing shareholders alongside MBG. bmp media investors AG increased its share in sleepz from 13.5% to 16.1%.
sleepz GmbH operates a large number of e-commerce shops and channels relating to the theme “sleep” with proprietary multi-channel software. With over 100,000 customers, its main brand, www.perfekt-schlafen.de, is already one of the largest players in this segment in Germany.
Mark Beyer, Managing Director of sleepz GmbH, explains: “Because we are growing quickly, the investment from MBG Berlin-Brandenburg GmbH and our existing shareholders allows us to position ourselves as a leading provider in the “sleep” segment. Together with our strong team, we want to expand our market presence and successfully develop our product segment.”
Oliver Borrmann, member of the Executive Board of bmp media investors AG, adds: “We are delighted to have MBG among the shareholders as another financing partner with a focus on the long term, who will join us in overseeing and supporting sleepz’ growth.
