CHARLOTTE — 7 Mile Advisors, a leading middle-market investment bank based in Charlotte, NC, announces another successful transaction in the Microsoft ecosystem – acting as the exclusive sell-side advisor to Intellinet in their majority sale to FPT.
“The 7 Mile team’s guidance and advice throughout our process was excellent,” says Mark Seeley, Intellinet CEO. “ We explored several strategic options over the course of our engagement, and 7 Mile’s persistence really paid off for myself, my team, and our shareholders. We collectively decided to proceed with a unique strategic buyer who required us to leverage all of 7 Mile’s deal experience in order to navigate to a successful outcome for both sides. I was delighted with the value we unlocked and realized together.”
FPT, a global leading IT Service Provider headquartered in Vietnam and Intellinet, a US-based purpose-driven management consulting and technology services firm, have reached a definitive agreement for FPT to become the major shareholder of Intellinet, expanding the company’s footprint in the United States.
This partnership enables both companies to deliver end-to-end strategic IT services on a global scale, helping clients to accelerate their Digital Transformation journey. With the team of 150 of Intellinet consultants joining FPT’s workforce, the two companies are able to provide a full range of technology solutions from consultancy, requirement definition, system design, development, implementation and maintenance for worldwide clients.
“After 25 years of leading Intellinet as Founder & Chairman, today I am pleased to announce that Intellinet is becoming the US gateway to a global organization through a strategic equity investment by FPT Software,” said Frank Bell, Intellinet’s Founder and Chairman of the board. “I couldn’t be more proud of Intellinet and our leadership team. I am excited to be a part of this transaction and the opportunity it creates to grow Intellinet into the global technology leader we have always believed it had the potential to become.”
“The Microsoft ecosystem continues to thrive, and we look forward to continuing to support clients with strategic advisory on acquisitions or capital raising as we have over the past 10 years,” says Andy Johnston, a partner at 7 Mile Advisors. As experts in the digital transformation space, 7 Mile Advisors regularly publishes research on the Microsoft ecosystem as well as other technology services segments.
