The Austrian finance group AvW INVEST AG has increased its investment in the German IT company Realtech AG (RTCG.DE) to 5,43 per cent. The announcement pursuant to the new transparency directive will be transmitted to the company and the supervisory authority for financial services (BaFin) within 3 days.

In addition to its investments in S&T (currently around 21 per cent) and Cancom (currently around 15 per cent), AvW INVEST AG has thus acquired an equity interest in another IT company. "Realtech is an excellent fit for our existing portfolio, but we are also looking at other companies," says Wolfgang Auer von Welsbach, Chairman of AvW’s Board of Management. It is still my goal to establish a leading position as an Austrian investor in the IT sector. The company's IT holdings currently have a market value of EUR 40 million.
