DLA Piper advises Jump House on the acquisition of two "Sprungbude" trampoline parks

DLA Piper advised Hamburg-based leisure company Jump House on the acquisition of Sprungbuden GmbH and Sprungbude Filderstadt GmbH with its trampoline parks in Bad Cannstatt and Filderstadt as well as the Sprungbude brand.

With the acquisition of the two Sprungbude locations, the German group has grown to 21 trampoline parks in Germany and one in Hungary under the Jump House, Superfly and UpSprung brands.

With Sprungbude Filderstadt, Jump House now owns the largest trampoline park in Europe with 8,500 square meters and 19 different attractions for trampolining, ninja courses and action sports. The location in Bad Cannstatt was the first trampoline park in the Stuttgart region in 2016 and complements the portfolio with a park of over 1,700 square meters. 

Jump House was founded in 2014 by Hamburg entrepreneurs Till Walz and Christoph Ahmadi and opened Germany's first trampoline park in the same year. In fall 2021, the company has been acquired by the Norwegian Parc Invest AS (Rush Group), whose main shareholder is Equip Capital Fund I.

DLA Piper advised on the acquisition of the Jump House Group by Parc Invest / Equip Capital in fall 2021. At the end of 2022, the team also advised on the acquisition of UpSprung GmbH and at the beginning of 2023 on the acquisition of the Superfly Group. 

The DLA Piper team for this transaction was led by counsel Dr Christoph Dachner (Corporate/M&A, Munich) and partner Christian Fenner (Corporate/M&A, Oslo, Norway). Also involved were partners Gerald Schumann (Corporate/M&A, Munich), Dr Burkhard Führmeyer (IP), counsel Patrick Reuter (Finance), senior associate Eike Bodo Matthes (IP, all Frankfurt) as well as associates Yolanda Ristau (Corporate/M&A, Munich), Dr Anna Rogler (IP) and Ilgin Ayhan (Finance, both Frankfurt).
