Adaptricity AG’s modular and cloud-based solution platform represents for Secure Meters Limited an ideal strategic addition to its own product portfolio for distribution network operators.
Secure Meters Ltd, an Indian multinational, having presence in 50 countries, acquired 100% stake in Adaptricity AG, a Switzerland based premium provider of smart grid solutions with innovative cloud-based grid analytics platform. Singhi Advisors, a global investment bank acted as the sole Advisors to Secure Meters Ltd for the transaction.
Adaptricity, majority owned by Euro 4 bn German multinational Leoni AG – a leading producer of wires and wire systems, was divested as part of pursuing LEONI’s strategic focus on its core business.

Leoni AG was advised by Proventis Partners, a member firm of Mergers Alliance, wherein Singhi Advisors is the exclusive Indian member and a strategic stakeholder.
