Telescope’s Transaction Advisory Team advised PROM12 Management GmbH (“PROM12”) with Commercial Due Diligence services on its platform acquisition of Communardo Software GmbH (“Communardo”), a Dresden based digital full-service provider.
One of the biggest challenges of today’s enterprises is to achieve a holistic and digital transformation of the organization. In this regard, the strong focus lies on creating a digital workplace, facilitating digital collaboration across the company and set-up agile processes.
Founded in 2001 and with over 200 employees, Communardo offers a holistic portfolio of IT-services in the field of digital workplace, DevOps and ITSM solutions.
Communardo holds strong technology partnerships with known companies such as Atlassian, Microsoft, Staffbase and Monday.com. With these partners, Communardo Software has a strong positioning as the company holds the Atlassian Platinum partnership status among few others in Germany and the Gold partnership status with Microsoft.
The key services offered by Communardo are primarily consultancy services supplemented by sales of software licenses, managed services and training. Moreover, Communardo is developing add-on software products for the Atlassian and the Microsoft ecosystem.
The company is further a well positioned player in a strongly growing market which makes it an attractive target that has just been acquired by PROM12.
PROM12 is an entrepreneur-led investment firm that has many years of experience in the areas of digital transformation and IT services, both as founders, entrepreneurs and as investors. PROM12 invests exclusively in companies in this field and the firm’s investors are entrepreneurs as well as family offices who understand exactly that sustainable growth takes time and effort.
“Communardo is able to participate from the substantial growth in the Atlassian and Microsoft ecosystems and has invested in its cloud capabilities early on. We believe the firm will further strengthen its footprint in the DACH market as one of the leading go-to-firms in the sector.” – says Simon Fischer, Managing Partner at Telescope Advisory Partners.
