Paris and Barcelona, 10th March 2023 – Aticeo (Paris, Barcelona) has accompanied TVH Consulting (France) in its acquisition of Algoritmia (Spain).
Aticeo acted as exclusive advisor to Ahmed Mahcer, President, and Eric Boisneault, CEO, to accelerate the international development of TVH Consulting through the acquisition of a Spanish partner: Algoritmia. Thanks to this transaction, effective as of 1st March 2023, and carried out with the support of the reference financial shareholder 21 Invest France, the group now has a turnover of almost €46M in Europe.
TVH Consulting, the long-standing French expert in the integration and publishing of Microsoft and SAP ERP-BI solutions, is strengthening its positioning on Microsoft Dynamics ERP solutions and advanced technologies on Microsoft Azure thanks to the merger with its Spanish partner Algoritmia.
Since 2021, the investment fund 21 Invest France has been supporting TVH Consulting, which in less than 6 months has completed its second strategic acquisition, this time within its historical perimeter, after diversifying into cybersecurity with the acquisition of Fidens. The new entity will have a turnover of almost €46 million.
With more than 60 employees, Algoritmia remains true to its mission since 2017, to accompany its more than 75 Clients in the excellence of their projects by relying on its leadership position in the Spanish market as well as on its expertise in artificial intelligence and Power Platform reinforcing its technical excellence in relation to the Microsoft Dynamics ERP. Algoritmia is the first Microsoft partner in Spain to have received two new certifications as “Solution Partner for Business Applications and Modern Work” required by the publisher since the end of 2022.
“Giving rhythm to the digital transformation of our clients is the path we wanted to take by joining forces with Microsoft Algoritmia, a specialist in technology, while expanding the group’s geographical scope. Facilitated by the common vision of our two entities, this rapprochement confirms our adequacy in terms of the values instilled by its founder Toni Torra, who notably favours the commitment of employees.”, comments Ahmed Mahcer, President of TVH Consulting.
The richness of Algoritmia’s value proposition, whether in ERP, CRM, Data Analytics, Cloud Platform or Artificial Intelligence, will enable synergies between the two companies to be quickly activated.
Algoritmia is also the publisher of its artificial intelligence application ALBA and excels in the services available in Azure. It is constantly enriching its three vertical business solutions and seven proprietary Power Apps for the agri-food, industrial, service and public sectors.
“We are delighted to join “the TVH family”. It was important for Algoritmia to maintain its current strategy while continuing to develop and diversify our solutions portfolio. The merger with TVH Consulting will allow us to bring a “technological” dimension that complements the group’s existing Microsoft offerings and to diversify our sectoral strategy. We will always be committed to satisfying our customers by capitalizing on our human resources”, says Toni Torra, CEO of Algoritmia.
