In January 2016, HLD was approached by Natixis Partners in connection with the sale of a 54% majority stake by the company’s founder. We expressed our interest quickly and signed the agreement within three months, allowing the company to focus on its operational development rather than the capital transaction.
Tessi has the advantage an end-to-end offer that includes high value-added proprietary technology solutions, coupled with strong business expertise, all of which add up to an excellent reputation upheld by a large and loyal client base. The company also operates in a fast-growing market driven by secular trends in outsourcing and digitalization that affect all areas of the economy, both private and public. Lastly, Tessi is highly effective in acquiring and integrating complementary companies, whether in terms of business or technological offer, a competitive advantage in a market that is fragmented in France and internationally.
