Paris, September 30th 2016 – Bryan, Garnier & Co advised TVH Consulting, a French leader in ERP integration, on a Management Buy-Out Operation (MBO). Working alongside the management team and founder, Pragma Capital has acquired a majority stake of the company with the ambition of creating a European leader in ERP integration and the development of proprietary vertical solutions.
Founded in 2003 by Guy Tubiana and his partners, TVH Consulting is a leading player in the development and integration of major ERP solutions: SAP and Microsoft Dynamics AX. The company serves “Blue Chip“ clients who greatly value their unmatched professionnal expertise as well as its unique competitive advantage: addressing specific clients needs through an in-house Dynamics AX based vertical solution called ADAX©.
TVH Consulting advises, distributes, integrates, supports and ensures the evolution of the solutions installed for its customers across the five continents while maintaining full project management and which garantees best results for their clients.
Through its international footprint, TVH Consulting works closely with a unique network of partners to serve its clients in more than 30 countries and across targeted sectors: Life Sciences, Agribusiness and Cooperatives, Retail and Omni-channel Distribution.
The management buy-out led by Pragma Capital took place following uninterupted growth in revenue since the company was founded (+35% CAGR) together with double digit profitability. This operation will support the company in the next steps of its development. In addition to organic growth, the company will drive its development through targeted acquisitions in France and abroad to continue expanding its market share.
Ahmed Mahcer, President, TVH Consulting, states: “The investment of Pragma in TVH Consulting’s capital supports the company’s transition to a highly experienced and cohesive team of managers, committed to the development of the group. In addition, the new shareholder brings new resources for an even more dynamic growth, particularly through targeted external growth operations.”
Thibaut De Smedt, Partner at Bryan, Garnier & Co added: “We are delighted to have assisted TVH Consulting in this operation which will give the company the means to accelerate its development.
The company, which is amongst the top 5% of Microsoft’s partners worldwide (Inner Circle partners) has constantly demonstrated its unique expertise in the ERP Integration space. This transaction further strengthens our leadership in IT Services and Enterprise Software, after deals such as the sale of Talentia to Argos Soditic, the sale of Aspediens to CSC and the merger of e-doceo and Talentsoft.”
