Noventiq announces the closing of the acquisition of Egypt-based DigiTech. In September 2021, Noventiq (formerly Softline) signed an agreement to establish a joint-venture with DigiTech strengthening Noventiq’s North African presence.
DigiTech is one of the leading and fastest growing Microsoft partners in Egypt with both Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) and Licensing Solution Provider (LSP) status.
Through this acquisition, DigiTech now has access to Noventiq’s global solutions and services portfolio covering security, infrastructure, virtualization, and other global vendors which will help the Egyptian company to diversify its technology offerings around multi-cloud and modern workplace solutions by accessing Noventiq’s shared services delivery centres in India.
With the closing of the deal, Noventiq Egypt’s team will join forces with DigiTech, becoming one unified entity for the Egyptian market and starting to operate under the brand of “DigiTech, a Noventiq company”. DigiTech, which will continue to be headquartered in Cairo, will also be retaining its employee base, and also welcome Noventiq’s Egypt team into their offices. While Mohamed Mostafa, DigiTech’s Chief Executive Officer, will continue to lead the company, DigiTech has appointed Noventiq’s President and COO, Hervé Tessler, to be the Chairman of their Board of Directors.
Hervé Tessler, President and COO at Noventiq, commented: “I am very excited to be part of the Board of Directors at DigiTech, an excellent company with an enormous potential for growth within Egypt and beyond. By welcoming DigiTech’s pool of talent, we are also getting outstanding professionals with brilliant IT skills and capabilities that will complement our own. Noventiq will also benefit from DigiTech’s market-leading position and their world-class portfolio business which includes IT services and solutions, such as licensing, cloud, security, access management and infrastructure management to customers spanning several industries. Through this acquisition, Noventiq is fulfilling on its three-dimensional growth strategy to expand its geography, portfolio and sales channel capabilities”.
Mohamed Mostafa, CEO at DigiTech, a Noventiq company, commented: “Noventiq is a leading global IT provider which will not only enrich our portfolio of solutions and services, but also help us expand beyond our own frontiers building an extraordinary future for all of our teams and customers. We are very much looking forward to welcome Noventiq Egypt’s team to our offices here in Cairo, and are grateful to Herve Tessler, Noventiq’s president and COO for joining our Board of Directors, supporting our own growth and business strategy.”
