Claranet buys Surrey-based Ardenta

Posted by Admin | July 21, 2016 | Telecoms

Managed services and hosting firm, Claranet, has acquired Ardenta for an undisclosed sum.

Ardenta is based out of Sunbury-on-Thames and its focus is the management of e-commerce systems, with particular expertise in high-volume transactional database management. The company has annualised revenue of £6m, with customers including the BBC, ITV, Ladbrokes and William Hill.

The deal comes shortly after Claranet’s acquisition of Diademys in France, and Warrington-basedBashton Limited.

Claranet has been investing to build its capability to provide managed services over traditional and cloud platforms. Some of the acquisitions might be fairly small, but they add important pieces of capability. Mid-market customers, just like the corporate end of the market, increasingly want choice in terms of how infrastructure is delivered. To that end it is very important that suppliers both broaden and deepen their capabilities to serve this need.

The Claranet Group (which operates across UK, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Spain and Portugal) now has annualised revenue of £200m and c1200 staff. We estimate that around half of revenue is derived from the UK market.
