OMMAX advised EMBRACE, part of Bertelsmann Investments, on the acquisition of Studyflix, a leading e-learning platform offering educational content for students, as well as employer branding and job postings for employers. The company is headquartered in Augsburg, Germany, and active in the DACH region.

OMMAX delivered expert advisory services to this deal, conducting a thorough commercial, technical and AI due diligence. This comprehensive analysis entailed an examination of Studyflix's unique business model, customers and digital performance, as well as an evaluation of the company's tech and data capabilities. Additionally, an extensive assessment of the AI impact on the sustainability of the business model has completed the analysis.

Max Kneissl, Partner at OMMAX, highlights: "Studyflix brings an unparalleled reach in its target audience and manages to effectively connect students to attractive employment options. Its digital maturity opens the potential to harness the benefits of generative AI across various steps of its value chain and generate value for its new owners. We would like to congratulate Bertelsmann Investments and the Studyflix management team on their new partnership."

We highly appreciated the critical perspective that OMMAX brought in through their commercial and tech due diligence. Furthermore, the AI impact assessment provided a differentiated understanding of the disruption risk that those emerging technologies represent for the business case.
