The shareholders of WESTPOLE Benelux (sales 40 M€) had mandated TWINL Banque d'Affaires to organize an "industrial" sale with a major name in Consulting and Digital Transformation. After a competitive process, PRODWARE was chosen to strengthen the company's presence in Europe. Present in 4 countries (Belgium, Luxembourg, France and Italy), Westpole Benelux boasts over 40 years' expertise in information technologies: outsourced services, business process management, cloud computing and cybersecurity solutions. Westpole Benelux manages the strategic information systems of government institutions in Belgium, Luxembourg and Italy, as well as those of the European Union. The Group has a strong presence with major industrial accounts, and is also well established in the public and banking markets. Westpole Benelux employs around 400 people and generates sales of just over €40 million.   This acquisition, which is fully in line with Prodware's growth strategy, offers major synergies:
  • Strengthening of existing positions and geographic expansion (Italy),
  • Enrichment of the portfolio (particularly in the areas of security, Cloud and Compliance, where Westpole Benelux has recognized expertise),
  • Positioning in new sectors such as public procurement and banking.
"Prodware and Westpole Benelux are two undeniably compatible and highly complementary entities. This merger, based on numerous synergies, will create a great deal of value for both groups, to the benefit of everyone - employees, customers and partners alike." Alain Conrard - CEO Prodware Group.   "Westpole Benelux welcomed Prodware's offer with great enthusiasm. The group will now be active in 14 countries, providing even more comprehensive solutions to a wide range of customers. Like Prodware, Westpole Belux supports companies at every stage of their digital transformation journey, offering an integrated approach to IT solutions and services, with the aim of reducing complexity, enhancing innovation and guaranteeing data security." Massimo Moggi- Director of Westpole.   The TwinL Banque d'Affaires team managed the entire sale process, from selecting and approaching potential buyers, to discussing and negotiating agreements with the selected Group, right through to closing. "I am proud of the work of the TwinL team, who successfully completed a complex process involving managers in 4 European countries" comments Frank Loubaresse, President of TwinL Banque d'Affaires. Massimo Moggi continues: "TwinL did an excellent job in organizing this difficult transaction, demonstrating a real knowledge of our market and the skills required to make the most of our expertise. Thank you Sevim, Frank and Laurent. See you next time!
