Armstrong has provided CDD support to Inflexion as the team completes a minority investment in Systal Technology Solutions (“Systal”), a leading managed network services provider, to support the business’ rapid growth. The investment is being made by Inflexion Enterprise Fund V, Inflexion’s dedicated lower mid-market fund.
Systal was founded in 2008 and is based in Glasgow, with a presence in the US and Asia. Owner-managed since inception, Systal offers a high-quality, mission-critical managed network service from its 24/7 network operations centre, to service clients’ IT networks globally. The firm counts Coca-Cola European Partners, WPP and Jones Lang LaSalle among its clients.
Armstrong formed a clear picture of the compelling market opportunity for Systal’s innovative network services and the competitive dynamics in the sector (in particular the opportunity to take share from telco incumbents) and put forward value creation recommendations around service offering and route to market.
Mike Callow, Director Armstrong said:
“Systal is a high quality and extremely high growth business addressing an enormous global market opportunity which is ripe for disruption from high quality independents. We were delighted to support Inflexion and the management team, with clear value creation recommendations to help Systal continue its stellar growth trajectory.”
This is the 15th technology deal that Armstrong has supported in the last 12 months.
