Boxine, the category-defining and award-winning kid’s cloud-connected digital audio entertainment system, goes public on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange through a pioneering EUR 990 million business combination advised on by our Luxembourg team.
We advised Tonies manufacturer Boxine, a cloud-connected kid's audio entertainment business, and private equity investor Armira on a business combination with 468 SPAC I SE, a Luxembourg special purpose acquisition company, resulting in Boxine's listing on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. This transaction is one of the first of its kind involving a German-listed SPAC with a pro-forma equity value of EUR 990 million and a PIPE (Private Investment in Public Equity) financing of EUR 100 million. The transaction further values Boxine at a pro-forma enterprise value of EUR 870 million.
Boxine is the company behind Tonies, the category-defining and award-winning kid’s cloud-connected digital audio entertainment system and one of Europe’s fastest growing tech-enabled brands.
