#Announcement#Transaction Advisory#IT#Vendor Due Diligence

OMMAX advised AURELIUS Wachstumskapital on the sale of IT services group connexta, marking another milestone in the consultancy’s portfolio of business services transactions.

The OMMAX team conducted a comprehensive commercial vendor due diligence, focusing on key areas including market and competitive dynamics, customer performance, group integration, and business plan assessment. This holistic approach articulated the innate solid qualities that the group, surpassing 100m€ in revenue, has built to serve medium-sized businesses in the German market.

Operating in a favorable market environment supported by rising IT complexity, growing cybersecurity threats, and a trend towards outsourcing, connexta has built a significant position in the German market, effectively combining local presence and deep specialization amongst domains such as cloud, cybersecurity, and business applications. In doing so, it has become a “one-stop-shop” for its thousands of customers.

In its path of inorganic growth, the buy-and-build platform successfully conducted 9 acquisitions in recent years and provides an ever-growing set of group benefits to its portfolio companies, strengthening their sales, delivery, and people excellence. Supported by a sophisticated M&A process and a dedicated team, the platform is well-positioned to continue and accelerate this trajectory in the future.

Jens Stief, CEO of connexta, on the VDD support delivered by OMMAX: “We highly appreciated the thorough coverage and in-depth analysis that OMMAX brought into the process. The team’s support allowed an effective crafting of connexta’s equity story, which we will drive in the future. OMMAX expertise from transaction advisory to digital execution has proven invaluable in this partnership.”

Max Kneissl, Partner at OMMAX, commented: "We would like to thank AURELIUS , connexta and TCG for the effective collaboration in this commercial VDD process, representing a remarkable deal in the European IT services landscape. With its clear positioning, relentless drive for operational excellence, and seasoned leadership, we see a strong development path ahead of the connexta group."
