adesso AG finalises complete takeover of SAP consulting company UnitCon GmbH, expanding its customer engagement & commerce business adesso AG is following through with the takeover of the IT consulting and development company in the field of SAP customer engagement, business analytics and HANA, as announced. adesso AG signed a purchase agreement in Darmstadt last Friday with the shareholders of UnitCon GmbH from Darmstadt. The purchase price is in the mid-single-digit-million range. It will be financed entirely with existing liquid funds, especially from the cash capital increase carried out successfully at the end of 2016. The profitable and debt-free company generated EBIT of approximately EUR 1 million and an EBIT margin of more than 20 % in the past financial year. The acquired company will be fully integrated into the adesso subsidiary ARITHNEA GmbH in the near future, where the sellers will continue to develop the joint business in roles of responsibility. Through the acquisition, adesso is strategically enhancing its subsidiary ARITHNEA in the field of SAP customer engagement, business analytics and HANA while expanding current activities with regard to customer engagement & commerce (CEC). As an experienced SAP consulting company, UnitCon GmbH possesses sound process-related and technological know-how with regard to digitalising business processes in marketing and sales. UnitCon is an SAP silver partner and has in-depth expertise to offer when it comes to SAP Hybris and SAP business intelligence solutions. ARITHNEA is rounding out its own customer engagement & commerce portfolio with the addition of UnitCon's services. The further gains in expertise mean that ARITHNEA is one of the first companies in German-speaking countries to offer a comprehensive range of services focusing on the SAP Hybris portfolio from a single provider. This makes ARITHNEA one of the market leaders for providing advice on and introducing SAP Hybris solutions. The merger serves to strengthen the ties of the existing partnership between ARITHNEA and SAP. Both companies worked together within a synergetic partnership even before they formally joined forces to cultivate the market. New prospects are now opening up within the adesso Group for the approximately 30 UnitCon employees, who are being given the opportunity to tackle larger and more complex projects. The two managing directors of UnitCon will continue to hold positions of responsibility. Moving forward, Markus Blau will serve as Business Unit Manager Customer Engagement & Commerce in Darmstadt and as SAP Partner Manager. Benedikt Bonnmann will head the new ARITHNEA branch in Darmstadt. He will also be responsible for continuing the expansion of business intelligence activities, in addition to joining the Management Board of ARITHNEA.
