The Dynniq Group’s fields of parking management solutions (WPS) and Energy were not part of the transaction. Dynniq Mobility was owned by the Private Equity Fund Egeria that took over Imtech Traffic & Infra in 2015 with subsequent rebranding to Dynniq. Egeria’s Mark Wetzels comments the transaction as follows: “In our evaluation we identified SWARCO as a family-owned business with a 5-decade track record in the traffic industry. Financially solid, the Austrian group can be considered a great new home for Dynniq Mobility, with strong potential for a joint sustainable growth. Egeria and the supervisory board are very proud of what the Dynniq Mobility team has accomplished so far. We wish them all the best under the leadership of SWARCO.”
