Alpina Partners fuels growth of ERP software platform, bolts-on Logis
Earlier this year, IT Beteiligungs (“ITB”, the “Group”), a portfolio company of Alpina Partners (“Alpina”), acquired all the shares in Logis, an ERP software business focusing on the equipment leasing and retail market. Logis is the fourth acquisition of ITB which has already acquired majority stakes in Oxaion, cimdata Software and Syncos.
Alpina and co-investor Command have provided funds to further fuel Oxaion’s sustainable and double-digit organic growth. In addition, Logis will become a subsidiary of Oxaion to leverage substantial synergies expected between both companies going forward.
Logis is a leading software provider for equipment leasing and trading businesses with a focus on construction and material handling equipment, agricultural machinery as well as scaffolds. Logis was founded in 1995 and serves approx. 200 customers in its segment. The acquisition enables the Group to address another vertical after Oxaion successfully entered the medical technology space as a specialized solution provider.
Volker Schinkel, CEO of ITB and Oxaion, commented: “We observed the market carefully before we acquired Logis, a leading solution provider in the equipment leasing and trading space. The special expertise and know-how implemented in the company’s TopLog software product is a clear differentiator enabling future growth”. Florian Strehle, Partner at Alpina, adds: “Acquiring Logis to address another dedicated market segment was the right move for us. The Group will continue to add new functionality to its software offering either by acquisition or organically”.
