Proact Acquires Benelux Cloud Services Firm For €17m
Sweden’s Proact has acquired PeopleWare of the Netherlands to strengthen its cloud services business and expand in core markets.
Proact’s acquisition of the managed services provider enhances its market presence in the Netherlands and Belgium, and adds expertise for delivering high-growth managed cloud services into the medium-sized enterprise segment, it says.
Founded in 2003, PeopleWare is a privately held company with over 220 employees and more than 170 active customers. PeopleWare’s core services are outsourcing, cloud infrastructure and business consultancy.
The company has been acquired from the founders, who will remain with the company. Following the acquisition, PeopleWare and its employees will become an integral part of Proact in the Netherlands and in Belgium, said Proact.
Jonas Hasselberg, CEO and president of Proact IT Group AB, said: “Our combined customer base, service offering and business culture makes PeopleWare and Proact an excellent strategic fit. By uniting our teams in the Netherlands and Belgium, we will add greater value to our customers through an even stronger portfolio and skill-set covering hybrid cloud deployment models.”
He added: “PeopleWare will also contribute to our strategic targets of revenue growth and improved EBITA margins, in alignment with our updated strategy and financial targets.”
Mark van Liempt, CEO of PeopleWare, said: “Becoming part of Proact offers PeopleWare the chance to further expand our outsourcing activities and services. The vast customer base of Proact, combined with our expertise and experience in the field of IT outsourcing, is key to further growth and success.”
The purchase price amounts up to €17m and is based on 2019 full-year performance, corresponding to eight times adjusted EBITA. The purchase price will be released in its full during a 24-month period post-closing. PeopleWare has a yearly revenue of around €28m and will be consolidated into the group results as of now.
