Instaclustr, a global provider of open source data technologies, successfully completes the acquisition of the German and US credativ companies. Through the acquisition Instaclustr expands know-how and geographical presence.

Instaclustr offers an integrated data platform of open source technologies and consulting services. The company manages more than seven petabytes of data for more than 500 clients from various industries.

With the acquisition of all shares in the German and US credativ companies, Instaclustr is not only expanding geographically, but is also acquiring a powerful and internationally respected company in the open source sector that expands both the breadth and depth of Instaclustr's current portfolio by offering new technologies such as PostgreSQL.

Together with the Australian law firm Talbot Sayer, the US law firm Husch Blackwell and the law firm BRP Renaud, a LUTZ | ABEL team led by Hamburg partner Frank Hahn provided comprehensive legal advice to Instaclustr on the transaction. A PWC team provided tax and financial advice. "We are very happy to have assisted Instaclustr in entering the German market. The transaction allowed us to prove our capabilities to manage complex, cross-border deals for our clients efficiently and in a target-oriented manner," said Frank Hahn.
