Berlin-based venture capital company bmp AG, listed on the Frankfurt SDAX index, is to acquire as part of a capital increase a 20% equity stake in indecom independent computing GmbH. The Friedrichsdorf, Hessen, based company was set up at the end of 1999 and has been online since January 2000. indecom is one of the first German ASPs to offer software and integrated IT solutions on the Internet. Users are provided with the latest applications software in fully inclusive packages via the Internet without the software needing to be installed on the individual user's computer. Monthly all-in charges are made for the service. indecom's target group is the large market of medium-sized companies with 500- 1,000 users. In addition to operating systems, databases, office suites, mail and comms software, they are offered special solutions in sectors such as Enterprise Ressource Planing (ERP), Customer Relationship Management (CRM) and datamining. indecom's competence as an ASP is underscored by business partners such as Citrix, Siemens Fujitsu, Lucent Technologies, Microsoft, UUNET, Compaq, Progress, Damgaard and Stepahead. The additional funds that indecom independent computing GmbH will come by as a result of bmp's holding are to be invested in establishing the company in the market, in acquiring new customers and in research and development. bmp sees indecom independent computing GmbH as a strategic investment in the still nascent but strongly-growing ASP market, and one that will contribute toward a lasting increase in the value of its portfolio of shareholdings. indecom independent computing GmbH is bmp AG's 67th and bmp eBusiness AG's 47th shareholding. bmp AG has been in business since 1997 as a venture capital company in Germany, other European countries and the U.S. Since it was launched, bmp AG has invested nearly 79 million euros in equity capital.
