Paris, July 18, 2019. The strategy, development and leadership consulting firm Neovian Partners has assisted the investment funds Andera Partners, Tikehau Capital and Bpifrance in carrying out the strategic buyer due diligence on Ellisphere, a company specializing in Business Intelligence.

As a digital company in the BtoB information market in France and abroad, Ellisphere supports and secures the decision-making of economic players. The group has been led since 2014 by Valerie Attia and has 300 employees. In 2018, it achieved a turnover close to €50M.

Neovian Partners assisted the teams of Andera Partners, Tikehau Capital and Bpifrance in this acquisition process by providing a comprehensive strategic study of the B2B information market and Ellisphere’s competitive environment. It was also necessary to identify potential targets so that this leader could consolidate its solid position in the face of ongoing technological developments in the field of software and Artificial Intelligence.

In this context, Ellisphere intends to develop new solutions for companies and accelerate its growth through external growth operations.

“With our experience in the software and data space, we gave our clients a better understanding of Ellisphere’s business and in particular the differentiating factors related to its leadership position in a niche market consisting of high barriers to entry.
