Landis+Gyr to Acquire Rhebo

Landis+Gyr has entered into an agreement to acquire 100% of the capital of Rhebo, a portfolio company of eCAPITAL and a leading provider of IoT cyber security solutions.

Landis+Gyr is the global industry leader in energy measurement solutions and advanced meter management for electricity, gas, heat and water utilities.

Rhebo detects anomalies and threats right in the periphery of the network (grid edge) and therefore fits perfectly with our strategy in cybersecurity.

Werner Lieberherr, CEO, Landis + Gyr

The cooperation with Landis+Gyr is not only positive news for Rhebo's further growth. With the integration of Rhebo into Landis+Gyr's Advanced Metering Infrastructure, Critical Infrastructures worldwide will also get a secure solution for further digitization and automation of their services.

Klaus Mochalski, Founder and CEO, Rhebo

We are very happy about this successful exit. My special thanks go to the founding team of Rhebo, who trusted us to accompany the company as lead investor alongside Technologiegründerfonds Sachsen, Montan-Ventures-Saar as well as VNG Innovation.

Dirk Seewald, Partner, eCAPITAL AG
