PropTech – Building the global leading real estate operating system.

The European workplace experience SaaS platform spaceOS merges with Equiem, its peer in Australia and the USA.

The Background
Today’s workplaces struggle to deliver what modern professionals need most, tools to make their workday more productive and engaging. Companies struggle to bring people back to the office, and landlords face ballooning vacancy rates. With the idea to empower owners and operators to deliver a world-class experience to their tenants with a platform combining a full breadth of real estate solutions, spaceOS was built.

The Deal
The merger combines Equiem's expertise in tenant engagement and workplace experience with spaceOS' cutting-edge flex-space technology and integration functionality, offering a unique integrated approach to workplace innovation. Equiem will now provide asset managers and landlords with a complete suite of products to manage their tenant experience and engage their tenants. It will also offer solutions for flex-space management and hybrid working. The combined company will continue to operate under the Equiem brand.

Stefan C. Heilmann, CEO of IEG – Investment Banking Group: “The merger between spaceOS and Equiem creates a truly global leader that is setting new standards in workplace experience, managing buildings and working with prominent clients across APAC, North America, Western Europe and CEE.”

IEG – Investment Banking Group has acted as the exclusive financial advisor to spaceOS and its shareholders.
