Sale of Integrata to Cegos Group
GCA Altium acted as exclusive financial adviser to the shareholders of Integrata AG, the leading German training & development services provider, on the sale to Cegos Group.
Founded more than 50 years ago, Integrata is the leading brand in the German learning & development market. With a trainer pool of approx. 1,400 trainers and more than 80,000 training participants annually, Integrata generates revenues of more than € 40m.
Cegos Group and Integrata have complementary expertise and strategies, both in terms of geographical footprint and their respective portfolios. Integrata will benefit from Cegos’ extensive international network with activities in over 50 countries and will bring to Cegos its knowledge and coverage of the German market across 15 sites, as well as its German key account portfolio. Integrata’s activities are focused on domestic customers which increasingly have international development needs.
Integrata’s senior leadership team remains a significant shareholder and will continue to be responsible for taking the business forward.
José Montes, Chairman of the Cegos Group, said: “As a market leader, we must seize the best development opportunities when they arise. This major acquisition will give Cegos Group a new dimension and will enable us to further develop our position as a business partner for our international customers.”
Ingmar J. Rath, CEO of Integrata, adds: “By joining Cegos Group, our range of learning & development solutions will grow considerably, and we will reach a truly international network. As the leading company in the learning & development sector in Germany, we are proud to bring to Cegos Group our recognized know-how and expertise in the areas of personal development, organizational development and IT, as well as managed training services.”
