    Dustin strengthens the position within standardised services through Danish acquisition

    News   •   Sep 10, 2020 10:00 CEST

    Exato is specialised in standardised services including IT-security, and more than half of their revenue comes from subscription services to small and medium sized companies.

    The acquisition contributes to Dustin’s strategy of increasing sales of services through both acquisitions and organic growth. Exato both strengthens and complements Dustin’s offering in Denmark.

    - Exato fits very well to our strategy, focusing on standardised subscription services. Their latest focus on standardised IT-security services will strengthen Dustin’s offering even further. At the same time, we increase our capacity within managed services in Denmark, says Alexandra Drevenlid EVP Services & Solutions Dustin.

    Exato’s revenue amounted to approximately 30 MDKK during the previous fiscal year. The company has about 20 employees and offices in Copenhagen and Odense. Exato is acquired from the four founders who will stay in the company.

    - Becoming a part of Dustin is a great opportunity and a natural next step for us. It enables us to continue our focus on developing and delivering standard offerings, but to a larger customer base, says Anders Vedel, CEO of Exato.

    Exato will be consolidated in Dustin during September. The acquisition will have marginal impact on Dustin’s earnings per share in the current financial year.

We reported positive sales growth of 3.2 per cent for the quarter, of which more than 1.3 per cent was organic. Adjusted EBITA declined compared with the year-earlier quarter to SEK 106 million. Furthermore, based on the prevailing market situation, we have implemented measures to adapt the organisation and reduce our costs”, says Thomas Ekman, President and CEO at Dustin.
