25 October 2021

RSM UK’s M&A and Private Equity team has advised on the sale of Adatis Group Limited, a leading independent Data Analytics consultancy and Microsoft specialist, to Incremental Group.

Founded 16 years ago, Adatis has grown to become one of the largest Microsoft specialists in the UK, with offices in England, Bulgaria and India. The company provides advanced data analytics consulting, delivery and managed services to large, high-profile clients across both the private and public sectors.

The acquisition by Incremental, a private equity backed provider of digital transformation services and specialists in Microsoft Dynamics, marks its second deal this year. The combined group will strengthen its position as one of the leaders in Microsoft data consultancy and digital enterprise.

The transaction was led by RSM UK’s corporate finance partner Natalie Ord, with support from Stephanie Wilson, James Underhill, Tom Sheerin and Aoidin Gormley.

Natalie Ord, corporate finance partner at RSM UK, said: ‘More and more businesses are investing in technology to deliver core efficiencies, cost savings and essential data to better inform decision making. Adatis is at the forefront of that market and is testament to the passion and expertise of the team behind it. As a Microsoft specialist, Incremental’s acquisition strengthens the combined group’s capabilities and presents a fantastic opportunity to continue to scale.’

Tim Kent, director, Adatis, said: ‘Thank you to the RSM team for their support and dedication throughout the process. They were available any time of the day and we felt reassured that they had every aspect under control. They added value to our deal every step of the way and delivered a fantastic outcome for us - we would highly recommend them.’
