Charles Russell Speechlys has advised the Civica Group (an investee company of OMERS Private Equity) on its acquisition of Asidua Holdings Limited, the software consultancy and services group.
Asidua is based in Belfast with offices in Dublin and Birmingham. The company specialises in software, integration and consultancy services for government and corporate customers in the UK and internationally, with particular expertise in local government contact management and application integration and in specialist telecoms systems.
Asidua has a successful track record in providing contact management and enterprise application and data integration (ADI) and has developed the Customer Contact PlatformTM which allows organisations to transform services while reducing the cost of contact through seamless integration. As organisations look to modernise services and make savings through digital transformation, the acquisition brings complementary expertise and will form part of Civica’s Digital Solutions business, extending the Group’s capability as it continues to help organisations create more immediate, agile and connected ways of working.
The Charles Russell Speechlys core team comprised Malcolm MacDougall and Holly Sage on the Corporate side, with members of our Tax, Intellectual Property and Employment teams also involved.
