14.12.2017 Increase of the Role of DB-H Group
DB-H Group and its partners "own" the technology, solutions, products, know-how and Intellectual Property Rights ("the Products"). These Products are aquired by the Swiss Holding (or one of its specialist subsidiaries) on a preferential basis once these have reached a specific maturity milestone (which includes a market).
The Role of DB-H Group has recently increased to the extend that it will hold-on to that ownership a bit longer as originally envisioned. Based on the parameters of the deals in place, the T&C of the transfer of title and rights, and each party involved is secured. The formal process of activation of assets under the Swiss Holding and the final structure with allocation of interests to the parties involved in the deals, takes place over a period of up to 12-18 months. This will not affect the release to market of any new products and components and services, as those activities proceed independently of the acquisitions and transfers.
The Swiss Holding Company does not take development risk. That is carried by its sister-organization, DB-H Group, the independent “incubator” in which concepts and vision, the technology and the fine-tuning are thought out, developed and brought to the point where there is a real market and contracts, safeguarding a profitable operation, have been established.
Once this milestone is achieved and the core-business has established an initial customer-basis and positive track record, DB-H Group has the option to sell or the Holding may have the preferential option to buy the venture. The investment by the Holding is managed at arm's length basis, enforcing strict quality performance, operational and of course environmental and moral standards.
DB-H Group consists of independent business ventures, as well as private and corporate entrepreneurs and is supported by early stage funding, which includes angel investors, equity partners and other early stage investor participations.
