Intys is one of the leading consulting firms in Belgium founded in 2007 by Michel Van Hemele and Philippe Metz with revenue in excess of €36m and 400+ employees. Since its inception, Intys has been set up as an alternative to the Big 4 in the field of operational consulting. It is now a differentiated player thanks to its multi-specialist and multi-sector positioning.
The company is organised around three different business lines:
- Operational consulting: streamlines and improves clients’ key operational functions such as finance, supply-chain or logistics
- Digital transformation: supports its clients with big data analytics and digital transformation services through both software solutions (Vadis Technologies) and advisory (Intys Data)
- Technology: originally set-up as a naval and industrial engineering office, it also offers operational consulting services for complex industries (military, aerospace etc.).
Intys was looking to onboard a financial partner to accompany its growth plan which relies on an external growth strategy to expand its European footprint and portfolio of expertise.
Bryan, Garnier & Co acted as the Sole Financial Advisor to Intys. The team worked together with Intys’ co-founders to prepare and run a competitive process.
The equity partnership with Omnes will support Intys in its ambitions to become a European leader by providing financial resources to further implement its international build-up strategy.
This transaction represents another landmark transaction for Bryan, Garnier & Co’s business services practice and further demonstrates its expertise in the consulting sector. Other similar transactions include buy-out operations of Marquetis & Co led by Management and Omnes and of TVH Consulting led by Pragma Capital.
