Hilbert Group AB (NASDAQ FN: HILB B) has acquired a 5.7% stake in Capchap AB, a joint venture between the blockchain pioneer Chromaway AB and law firm LegalWorks / LWA. The transaction amount for Hilbert Group is SEK 2.5 million, and the deal is cash settled.
Capchap offers equity management on the blockchain. Capchap’s solution enables users to manage their share ledger, issuance of new shares, buying and selling of shares in private companies and other corporate actions – on the blockchain. This means that the costly corporate secretary services currently provided by legal advisors, are to a large degree eliminated. The solution meets the legal requirements of Swedish law and GDPR.
“We believe Capchap’s solution is the future of corporate administration. Increasingly expensive and bureaucratic services will be put on the blockchain and governed by smart contracts.”, says Niclas Sandstrom, CEO of Hilbert Group. “Capchap’s blockchain-powered solution addresses a very important non-financial use case for blockchain technology and, as such, diversifies our existing VC portfolio.”, he added.
“We are pleased to have Hilbert Group as one of our shareholders and also on the advisory board”, says Mattias Sjöberg, CEO of Capchap. “We see many synergies between Hilbert Group’s activities and our own as well as those of ChromaWay”.
