The Project (Mergers & Acquisitions):
In accordance with the corporate strategy Kapsch BusinessCom is significantly expanding its IT solutions business, also by acquiring IT companies.
Management Factory therefore screened the Austrian IT market and guided Kapsch BusinessCom through the entire acquisition process - from the initial approach to the integration of the new acquisitions. Management Factory’s extensive financial know-how was especially valuable for evaluating the acquisition targets and negotiating the contracts.
Six companies have been purchased to date and other acquisitions are in the pipeline.
