Orbis advises on new IT acquisition

Birmingham-based Orbis Partners has advised on the sale of a Welsh IT firm.

M4 Systems is a leading Microsoft Gold Partner focussed on developing CRM and ERP solutions.

Hengoed-based M4 specialises in the development and support of bespoke CRM and ERP solutions built on Microsoft’s Dynamics product lines. Founded in 2000, M4 Systems has offices in the UK as well as a software development team located in Central Belgrade, Serbia.

Welsh neighbour SAGlobal, based in Cardiff, is one of the leading global Microsoft partners, providing Microsoft Dynamics implementation services and industry-specific solutions to customers in over 75 countries worldwide.  

Dave Saunders, managing director at M4 Systems, said: “Joining with SAGlobal felt like a natural progression of our company and provides an opportunity to accelerate the success and momentum of our business.

“The two businesses share the same principles of what it means to be a successful technology company today, together we have the opportunity to extend our geographies, expertise, and offerings to better serve our clients and partners.”
Stephen James, CEO of SAGlobal, added: “M4 Systems is nearly the mirror-image of SAGlobal in terms of its dedication to customer service, focus on cloud technology, and deep relationship with Microsoft. M4 Systems brings a strong team and client roster, strategically important expertise in the CRM market, and increases our presence in Europe.”
Shah Zaki, of Orbis, said: “We are delighted to have supported M4 Systems throughout the process in order to achieve their aim. It was clear to us from the outset that SAGlobal and M4 Systems would be a perfect fit.”
The Orbis team was made up of Shah Zaki and Oliver Wadlow.

The terms of the deal have not been disclosed.
