● BPSOLUTIONS is creating a smarter world with investor M80
● European leader in digital transformation

Utrecht, 8 DECEMBER 2022 - Dutch Mission Critical IT Service provider BPSOLUTIONS, top scorer in Giarte's IT Xperience monitor for two years in a row, is continuing to build on its mission to make the world a little smarter. Private equity fund M80 is taking a majority stake in BPSOLUTIONS to build, together with XPLUS and Luminis, a European full-service provider in the field of digital transformation.

This move responds to the demand for a more holistic approach in helping clients in their digital transformations. M80 aims to build a portfolio of best-in-class specialists in digital transformation: from digital strategy to keeping IT environments up and running. Besides mission critical IT player BPSOLUTIONS, XPLUS, a Belgian expert in enterprise IT architecture, and Luminis, a Dutch software and cloud company, are already part of the portfolio. Together, the group has a turnover of €50 million and employs 300 people.

Mark de Groot, CEO BPSOLUTIONS: "By joining forces with XPLUS and Luminis, we will be able to serve clients in multiple areas of their digital transformation, delivering faster, better and integrated results - and across the Benelux. In addition, this move will offer new and interesting opportunities for our employees, which is essential to connect talent to us."

With the acquisition of BPSOLUTIONS, M80 has taken another step in its development as a full-service provider in the field of digital transformation in Europe, following the acquisition of XPLUS and Luminis. By becoming part of this group of companies, BPSOLUTIONS can accelerate the broadening of its service and product portfolio in the field of digital transformation.

Hans Bossenbroek, group CEO: "Already during the negotiations with BPSOLUTIONS, we saw concrete opportunities where clients could benefit from the synergy between the various portfolio companies and BPSOLUTIONS. The result: secure, faster, and better solutions, delivered by complementary players with the same culture and notion of excellence."

Carl Annicq, M80: "Their exceptionally strong reputation in the market and outstanding customer feedback strengthened our belief that BPSOLUTIONS was the ideal managed services and mission critical IT player to add to our platform. The extreme customer focus that Mark de Groot and his team pursue with the aim of always positively surprising the client is a breath of fresh air in this industry. IT gems like BPSOLUTIONS are wooed daily – we are therefore extremely proud that BPSOLUTIONS has chosen to partner with M80 to further expand the Managed Services business line of our new platform, internationally.”
