CAPZA supports Magellan Partners' external growth

CAPZA supports Magellan Partners in its first external growth transaction as part of its Strategic Plan to 2025.

Magellan Partners, a major player in the digital transformation of companies in France, announces the acquisition of Keralia Consulting, specialist in the transformation and optimization of business services (IT, Customer Services, HR, Finance, Operations…).

 

Keralia Consulting has 40 consultants and is specialized in the ServiceNow platform, a leading software suite for IT, HR and customer service management. The acquisition of Keralia Consulting allows Magellan Partners to expand its range of offers and services and to welcome expert teams, able to support companies in the transformation of their IT services and organizations.

 

With more than 1,240 consultants with the acquisition of Keralia Consulting, Magellan Partners Group expects to reach €350 million in turnover and 3,000 employees in 2025 by achieving organic growth of 15%.

 

Magellan Partners’ new phase of expansion, supported by CAPZA, is based on a strategy of targeted acquisitions in France in order to strengthen its position as a leading consulting firm in Organization and Information systems.

This dynamic confirms our conviction to support Magellan Partners as a consolidating player in the IT consulting and integration sector.

Other opportunities are under consideration, this dynamic confirms our conviction to support Magellan Partners as a consolidating player in the IT consulting and integration sector.” Benoit Choppin, Co-Head CAPZA Flex Equity, France
