Sentia Denmark Continues Independent Operations Following Divestment of Its Businesses in Belgium, Bulgaria and the Netherlands
Today it was announced that Accenture intends to acquire Sentia’s businesses in Belgium, Bulgaria and the Netherlands. Sentia’s Danish business will not be part of the transaction and will continue as an independent business under the Sentia brand, supported by Waterland Private Equity as its main shareholder. Accenture’s acquisition is subject to customary closing conditions, including regulatory approvals.
Following the closing of the transaction, Sentia Denmark will be 100% Danish, focusing on a Danish delivery to Danish customers, which will further strengthen its strong market position. Sentia Denmark has always been run mostly independently from the rest of the group given its local heritage and leadership.
Jakob Høholdt, managing director of Sentia Denmark, said:
“Through our buy-and-build strategy in Denmark in the past years, Sentia Denmark has become a leading and well-integrated hybrid cloud services player, with strong public cloud capabilities. Our Digital Experience Monitoring capabilities underline our focus to make IT work for client's end-users. We are one of the largest independent cloud services providers in Denmark with offices throughout the country and have always operated standalone from the rest of the group due to our regional and client intimate setup. With the continued support of our shareholders, we are excited about this next phase as a 100% Danish business in which we will continue to focus on being the best possible cloud services provider for our customers, employees and all other relevant stakeholders.”
The majority shareholders of Sentia Group, being Waterland Private Equity and Belgian entrepreneur Jonas Dhaenens, applaud all of Sentia’s operations, whose employees and leadership have proven their superior customer service levels and profile as a leader in cloud services. They will continue to support Sentia Denmark’s growth ambitions and look forward to working together with the management team in the years to come to further strengthen its leading market position.
