IVIDATA group, a consultancy specialising in digital and Big Data founded and headed by Ian BRADAC and Etienne ABOULKER, closed its first MBO with investment funds KEENSIGHT CAPITAL and ISAI GESTION.
The deal has allowed for IVIDATA to restructure its capital, primarily around the KEENSIGHT CAPITAL and ISAI GESTION funds, which have acquired a majority stake, and Etienne ABOULKER, who took this opportunity to reinvest and increase his equity stake.
The group, which employs 250 people, focuses primarily on two specialist sectors, IT and health, providing around 100 clients, including Danone, France Télévisions, La Poste, Sanofi, Société Générale and Total, with a breadth of complementary skills. In addition to its executive search and certified training centre activities, IVIDATA has also set up a number of subsidiaries to deliver data management and statistical analysis services.
IVIDATA’s founders were advised on the MBO by DELSOL Avocats, represented by Henri-Louis DELSOL, partner and co-head of the Corporate Law – Mergers & Acquisitions Department, and associates Vincent GUEVENOUX and Alexandre ZITOUNE, on tax aspects by partner and co-head of the Tax Law Department Mathieu LE TACON and associate Eve DAUVOIS, and on employment law aspects by Elsa LEDERLIN, partner and co-head of the Employment Law – Social Welfare Law Department, and associate Marion STOFATI.
