Esch­born — Rödl & Part­ner has provi­ded Silver Invest­ment Part­ners (SIP) with compre­hen­sive commer­cial advice on acqui­si­ti­ons in connec­tion with the estab­lish­ment and expan­sion of its majo­rity share­hol­ding in COHEMI Group GmbH (COHEMI), an IT consul­ting group. The newly foun­ded consul­ting group, an alli­ance of SIRIUS Consul­ting & Trai­ning, Acuroc Solu­ti­ons and IQ Solu­ti­ons, is pursuing a long-term buy-and-build stra­tegy. The exis­ting manage­ment of all three compa­nies will remain signi­fi­cantly invol­ved both opera­tio­nally and financially.

This merger of the port­fo­lio compa­nies from IT, process and orga­niza­tio­nal consul­ting has the poten­tial to jointly exploit exis­ting growth oppor­tu­ni­ties in the market and create syner­gies at Group level. For the custo­mers and target group — SMEs and corpo­ra­ti­ons in the DACH region, parti­cu­larly in the chemi­cal, phar­maceu­ti­cal, life scien­ces and energy supply sectors — the inte­gra­tion means a more compre­hen­sive range of consul­ting services. The Group’s core compe­ten­cies include IT gover­nance, IT project manage­ment, (IT) service manage­ment, change manage­ment, asset stra­tegy & perfor­mance manage­ment, data manage­ment as well as soft­ware asset and license management.

SIP was advi­sed on this tran­sac­tion by a Rödl & Part­ner team specia­li­zing in private equity tran­sac­tions, led by part­ner Tobias Beine. Senior Asso­ciate Dr. Maxi­mi­lian Focke and Asso­ciate Simon Holz­wei­ler joined the Tran­sac­tion Services team from Esch­born near Frank­furt am Main.
