Talan has been advising companies and administrations for 20 years, supporting them and implementing their transformation and innovation projects internationally.
Established in 2002, Gemserv provides a range of consultancy and outsourcing capabilities across multiple sectors including energy, low carbon, health, and the public sector. This transaction marks Gemserv’s journey to become the point of reference for expertise in the energy and digital transition.
The newly established partnership will take advantage of the clear synergies between the two companies to accelerate combined growth in the areas of the clean energy transition, cyber security, and wider innovation and transformation through technology. The acquisition will provide Gemserv with greater scale and an increasing range of capabilities to support client needs. Talan will double the size of its current UK operations, complementing the existing business.
Mikael Thepaut of Talan, said: “We have been searching for a company specializing in the energy transition for some time and were impressed by the professionalism and expertise of Gemserv. Gemserv is a great fit in terms of services, clients and purpose-driven impact.”
Regarding Equiteq’s role in the transaction, Mikael Thepaut commented: “Equiteq was an outstanding partner for us, with the ability to help us identify and navigate the opportunities and challenges of this transaction through their unparalleled understanding of M&A in technology consulting, demonstrable trust, hard work, and transaction execution expertise. All our teams at Talan are excited about the journey to come with Gemserv, representing a great cultural and strategic fit for the future growth of our international business.”
Jerome Glynn-Smith, Managing Director of Equiteq further adds: “It was a pleasure to work with one of Europe's most successful independent digital transformation companies to help them build more scale and capabilities in the UK market. Gemserv brings strong consulting capabilities combined with deep energy sector knowledge and networks to Talan's international development. Well done to both teams on this great combination!”
