The Hague, August 31 – Jointly both companies have a strong strategic market fit and form a new leading cloudspecialist within the Dutch IT-market.
Main Capital is pleased to announce the sale of its majority shareholding in Denit to Uniserver, a specialized Dutch provider of cloud hosting solutions with over 20 years of experience in the sector.
Denit is headquartered in Amsterdam, The Netherlands and employs 40 people. In the recent years Denit specialized in quality service for ISV’s (software companies).
The core strategy of Denit is to serve software companies and IT-providers with dedicated solutions, ensuring the highest possible uptime and strong business continuity.
Edwin Cornelissens (CEO of Denit). “Main Capital supported us in establishing our position to become a leader in reliable, dedicated and specialized cloudsolutions for ISV’s. Becoming part of Uniserver will offer many opportunities for further developing our solutions, for our customers and for our employees. Together with Uniserver we will focus on growth. Our goal is to become the finest cloudprovider for system integrators and ISV’s.”
Wessel Ploegmakers (Chairman Supervisory Board and Sr. Investment Manager at Main Capital). “In recent years, Denit has evolved into a market leader in cloudsolutions. We see a strong mutual fit between both companies. Especially for existing customers of Denit, we believe this step is beneficial as more resources and scalability in the platform can be provided.”
Main Capital invested in Denit in 2016 and focused on autonomous growth by establishing a specific focus on ISV’s providing specialized solutions such as ‘’SaaSification’’ and Containerization. Next to that, Main has supported Denit with the add-on acquisition of Dutch Cloud in 2017.
Denit has been providing a wide range of services for ISV’s as a managed cloudsolution provider since 1999. Customer focus, proactivity and unburdening are in the DNA of the company. Denit has its own network and VMware cloud platforms. Besides that, the company is leading in knowledge and expertise of new concepts and technologies including containers, microservices, CD/CI and DevOps. Denit addresses the needs of the ISV market where SaaS and faster, error-free software releases are high on the agenda. Denit’s 45 enthusiastic specialists work every day towards one goal: to preserve successful and satisfied customers.
