Visiativ and XEFI announced, today, that they have engaged in exclusive negotiations to sell Visiativ Managed Services, an IT infrastructure and hosting provider. This transaction marks the strengthening of the partnership between XEFI and Visiativ, two key players in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region, both of which specialize in providing solutions and services to small and medium-sized businesses.
With 26 employees and its own datacenter located in the Lyon metropolitan area in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region, Visiativ Managed Services supports 140 small and medium-sized businesses with IT infrastructure and technological platforms adapted to their needs.
With its 1,800 employees in more than 160 offices in France, Switzerland and Belgium, XEFI group is the French leader in IT and related services (maintenance, cloud, outsourcing, security) for small and medium-sized businesses. The group also has a NEXEREN datacenter subsidiary with 5 highly certified datacenters, enabling it to control the entire cloud service chain.
Visiativ has been helping small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) with their digital transformation and innovation for over 35 years. This partnership will enable Visiativ to refocus on its core business of consulting and software, while relying on a partner of choice for its infrastructure business.
This transaction accelerates the respective development of the XEFI and Visiativ groups' offerings, in order to continue to support their common target: SMBs.
"We are delighted with the prospects that this operation opens up for us, as it strengthens our NEXEREN data center subsidiary and our influence in the Rhône-Alpes region. We are continuing our development of a 100% French, highly certified hosting and data security offer" said Sacha Rosenthal, Chairman and CEO, XEFI Group.
The transaction would involve the sale of 100% of Visiativ Managed Services' capital to the XEFI group.
The signing of the final agreement could take place in April, with the transaction being subject to consultation with the employee representative bodies of both groups.
