Default Beaufort Capital Invests in dtp entertainment

June 26th, 2010, 13:24
A couple of days ago several news outlets reported that private equity firm Beaufort Capital became a new shareholder of Drakensang and Venetica publisher dtp entertainment AG.
new business posted something which looks like the juicy part of the PR:
Beaufort Capital investiert in dtp entertainment

Beaufort Capital hat Anfang Juni eine Beteiligung an der dtp entertainment AG in Hamburg erworben. Der 1995 von Thomas Baur gegründete Publisher bietet ein breites Portfolio an Spielen aller Genres an. Zu den erfolgreichsten Veröffentlichungen gehören unter anderem die Drakensang-Spiele. "Das finanzielle Engagement ermöglicht der dtp entertainment AG den Sprung in die nächste Entwicklungsstufe. Wir sehen in dem neuen Investor einen Partner, der uns auf allen Ebenen an Reputation gewinnen lässt und eine echte Verstärkung im Hinblick auf den Ausbau und die Stärkung unserer erreichten Marktposition im Gaminggeschäft darstellt", erklärt Baur.

dtp entertainment beschäftigt über 200 Mitarbeiter an den Standorten Hamburg (Hauptsitz), Hannover und Singapur. Beaufort Capital wird das Unternehmen auch beim weiteren Ausbau der Geschäftsaktivitäten im In- und Ausland unterstützen."Im Rahmen unseres mehrjährigen Investitionshorizonts stehen wir neben der finanziellen Beteiligung dem Management der dtp entertainment AG auch bei strategischen Entscheidungen zur Seite. Zudem zählt die Unterstützung beim Ausbau des Geschäftes zu unseren Aufgaben. Entsprechend erwarten wir das Wachstum der vergangenen Jahre in adäquatem Umfang fortzuführen und den Standort Hamburg weiter zu stärken", so Dr. Johann David Herstatt, Partner der Beaufort Capital.

Good question, although I tend to a "doesn't apply to", since - I think - Radon Labs is already sold.

good news since I believe dtp is also involved in an MMO I'm interested in (I know, MMO, bad word in this site). Otherland Online, based on the Otherland books by Tad Williams (who I understand was involved in the design stages of the project). After some news in 2008 I haven't found any news on it, but I think it's still in (very secret?) development. I wonder if it was canned or not.

thanks, fixed
I've checked the site every few months, but nothing new there. All the news I've found are from 2008.

Another thing to ask dtp at the GamesCom …

Ah, I wondered how long it would be before someone made an MMO based on those books. No idea what that game would be like though, just knew there would be one eventually.

I have to say though, I'm not a big Tad Williams fan. Every book I've read of his has had miserable pacing. Boring prose for the first 90% of the book then everything happens in the last 10% and I usually miss all the details because I'm just hurrying to finish the book to move on to a more enjoyable read.
