Munich, Amsterdam, Tampa-Florida, September 11th, 2015 – Bryan, Garnier & Co. Gmbh (former Cartagena Capital) has acted as the exclusive financial advisor to Qelp, the leading provider of self-service software for smartphones, on their acquisition by publicly listed SYKES Enterprises, Inc.
Qelp carved out a niche in helping mobile operators and their customers. The Netherlands-based Qelp, a bootstrapped company, provides a software product to more than 60 mobile operators to help customers online to configure and use smartphones. The company was acquired for a total purchase price of up to $21 million, including substantial earn-out consideration.
Wouter Deelman, founder and CEO of Qelp, noted “Now being part of the SYKES team, we are better positioned to execute our product roadmap and expand further globally. Cartagena Capital supported us throughout the process with excellent C-level reach in companies which we did not have access to, which made quite a difference”.
