DATAGROUP acquires UBL Informationssysteme GmbH

  • Extended range of services for DATAGROUP customers, e.g.
  • in the field of platforms for containerized software solutions

Pliezhausen, April 9, 2019. DATAGROUP SE (WKN A0JC8S) announces the acquisition of all shares in UBL Informationssysteme GmbH. This acquisition strengthens DATAGROUP's footprint in the economically strong Rhine-Main region. Additionally, it extends the competencies by a successful specialist in infrastructure as well as platform and software solutions. In 2018, UBL with over 70 employees generated annual revenue of over EUR 20m and a double-digit EBITDA margin.

With immediate effect, DATAGROUP SE acquires 100% of the shares in UBL Informationssysteme GmbH (UBL), which is headquartered in Neu-Isenburg near Frankfurt/Main. Both parties have agreed to keep the purchase price confidential. The company is expected to be consolidated into the DATAGROUP Group with retroactive effect from April 1, 2019.

Multi-cloud and managed service provider UBL develops and operates IT infrastructures and platforms for larger Mittelstand companies. The company is specialized in providing customized services from architecture to concept of operations in the cloud. A special focus here is on IBM infrastructures. UBL also operates two data centers with direct redundant connection to the high-speed Rhine-Main fiber-optic network.

"UBL is a perfect addition to DATAGROUP from its complementary customer portfolio and the location in one of the economically most important regions in Germany to the competencies in platforms for containerized software solutions", said DATAGROUP CEO Max H.-H. Schaber. "Moreover, the company fits perfectly to the DATAGROUP family in terms of its service philosophy, the strategic focus and its sustainable and appreciative corporate culture." The two Managing Directors of UBL, Nils Wulf and Uwe Schneider, will continue to manage the company under the new corporate roof which means a constant support of the existing customer base.

"We are very pleased to become part of a very dynamic IT service group in Germany and to be able to continue on the path of success of the two companies collectively", said Nils Wulf. "The merger of our two companies means that we now can offer an even more comprehensive service portfolio with high requirements to quality and reliability. At the same time, our affiliation to DATAGROUP offers promising development potential for our employees", said Uwe Schneider.

Acquisition adds value

Like DATAGROUP, UBL focuses on offering IT outsourcing services with long-term contracts as part of its managed services. The employees have the experience from numerous data center and cloud projects as well as from developing and implementing migration concepts to ensure a smooth transition from in-house operation to managed services. These are the best prerequisites for the swift onboarding of UBL. Alongside its existing service portfolio, UBL has also access to DATAGROUP's service concept - the CORBOX. "Additionally, the competence in container technology complements the range of our central supply units in IT Solutions and creates a new knowledge center", said DATAGROUP CPO Andreas Baresel.

"As such, the acquisition of UBL, which has been very successful on the market for 30 years, provides significant added value for our customers, our employees and our investors", Max H.-H. Schaber concluded.
