Investcorp, a Bahrain-based asset manager that counts Mubadala Investment Company as its biggest shareholder, announced on Wednesday that its portfolio company, Impero, a provider of online student safety and classroom and network management software, has acquired Netop, an international software solutions provider to the education sector and corporates, from Consolidated Holdings A/S, terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Ali AlRahma, private equity product specialist at Investcorp, said: “Impero’s acquisition of Netop comes at a time when both students and professionals around the world need the technology solutions provided by these two organisations. We believe that this acquisition will further advance Impero’s ability to serve both education and corporate clients.”


Upon completing the transaction, Impero would be better positioned to serve customers in both the education and corporate end markets with a broader suite of offerings, and would have the potential to both accelerate its product roadmap and realise substantial revenue synergies by incorporating Netop’s complementary technology into its existing portfolio.

The transaction is expected to close within the next four weeks, subject to customary closing conditions.


Gilbert Kamieniecky, managing director and head of Investcorp’s Private Equity Technology business, said: “The addition of Netop will provide Impero with the potential to accelerate its growth in the US whilst also bringing high quality technology, an international customer base, and an excellent team. Impero and Netop are highly complementary businesses and we are excited by the compelling growth and value-creation potential of the transaction and the strong progress that Impero is continuing to deliver on its strategy.” — business@khaleejtimes.com
