IK VII Fund, advised by IK Investment Partners (IK), is to acquire TeleComputing AS from Ferd Capital. Financial terms of the transaction have not been disclosed.
Since 1997, TeleComputing has been at the forefront of IT operations and outsourcing for small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in the Nordic region. As IT environments are becoming increasingly complex and critical to business management, TeleComputing has successfully built a leading position by making IT easy for its customers.
“TeleComputing has successfully positioned itself as a leading player in the Nordic SME segment with a core value proposition of reducing IT complexity for its customers. The company has a long history of uninterrupted growth and we look forward to supporting the management team to further strengthen the Company’s position and drive growth as well as operational improvements over the coming years,” says Thomas Klitbo, Partner at IK Investment Partners, and advisor to the IK VII Fund.
“With more than 850 customers with approximately 85,000 end-users, TeleComputing enjoys large-scale economy advantages making it possible for us to provide much more cost-efficient and professional IT operations services than most small and medium sized Nordic companies can achieve on their own. As we enter a partnership with IK, we will continue to develop our business model in order to drive new customer wins by continuing to find new ways of ‘making IT easy’,” says Sven Tore Kaasa, CEO at TeleComputing.
