A cross-border team from A&O has advised the Infinigate Group, a portfolio company of Bridgepoint, on the acquisition of Nuvias Group’s cyber security and secure networking business.
The acquisition further establishes Infinigate’s position as a leading pan-European value-added distributor (VAD) of cyber security solutions with forecast revenues of EUR2 billion.
A&O advised on the original acquisition of the Infinigate Group by Bridgepoint in 2021 and has since advised on its buy-and-build strategy, including its strategic acquisition of cloud distributor Vuzion, creating the first cybersecurity and secure cloud VAD and its merger with Dubai-based Starlink, the market-leading VAD in cybersecurity, secure cloud and secure networking in the Middle East and Africa.
M&A Partner Roman Kasten commented: “We are pleased to have channelled the strength of A&O’s network for the benefit of Bridgepoint and Infinigate on the latest addition to their expanding portfolio, further consolidating their cyber security offering across Europe.”
Leveraged Finance Partner Robin Harvey added: “Despite changing market conditions, it has been a pleasure to help raise a succession of financings for the rapid growth of Infinigate.”
The team in London was led by partner Karan Dinamani together with senior associate Kayleigh Sanders and associates Louise Holmens and Harriet Lister. The team in Frankfurt/Hamburg included partner Roman Kasten and Georg Dalitz. Financing advice for each acquisition was provided by partner Robin Harvey, and senior associate Nihaal Khanna.
