SANTA CLARA, Calif. – July 12, 2023 – Hitachi Vantara, the modern infrastructure, data management and digital solutions subsidiary of Hitachi, Ltd. (TSE: 6501), announced its intent to sell oXya, a premier France-based SAP infrastructure solution provider it acquired in 2015, to Montefiore Investment, a well-respected French investment firm that specializes in high-potential small- and medium-sized service companies.
“Over the last eight years, with its expertise in SAP hosting and BASIS services, oXya has been a successful and profitable acquisition for Hitachi Vantara. As we look forward, we believe this deal positions both oXya and Hitachi Vantara for continued growth against our respective opportunities,” said Roger Lvin, President of Digital Solutions Business Unit at Hitachi Vantara. “Following the completion of this deal, Hitachi Vantara will continue to pursue our SAP implementation and support business and will maintain a consistent and continuing business relationship with oXya. As such, customers and partners can expect the same excellent service without disruption.”
Montefiore is looking to acquire oXya in part for its world-class service offerings, market position, in-depth industry knowledge, reputation for excellent customer service, and experienced management team. Montefiore has a long term buy-and-hold acquisition strategy, providing its portfolio companies with the strategic guidance and financial support required to help them achieve their ambitious growth and development objectives.
“oXya’s market position and global customer base combined with its 25 years of experience in the management of critical applications made it an attractive investment for Montefiore, one that is strongly in line with our investment strategy,” said Daniel Elalouf, Managing Partner of Montefiore Investment. “We look forward to the opportunity to partner with oXya’s management team to maximize the company’s growth both in France and internationally.”
The transaction is subject to customary conditions and regulatory approvals and is expected to close by the end of the summer 2023. Following the close of the deal, Hitachi Vantara will retain its business relationship with oXya, which will operate independently and continue to be led by Geert Vandendorpe, President Frédéric de Belloy, and other key personnel.
