Carlsquare successfully advised SHD System-Haus-Dresden on its merger with Syserso Networks
Carlsquare acted as the exclusive financial advisor to SHD System-Haus-Dresden, a provider of managed IT services in the KRITIS space, on its merger with Syserso Networks, a platform investment of Chequers Capital, a global Private Equity firm focused on the service, industrial and distribution sector.
Since its foundation in 1990, SHD has developed into one of the market’s leading IT service providers. SHD has established itself as a long-term partner to the public sector as well as the energy and healthcare industries in the area of project planning, implementation and support of complex process management and system solutions. The company – headquartered in Dresden – currently has six locations in Germany and employs around 170 highly qualified staff. SHD has been certified according to ISO 9001 and ISO 27001 since 2016. Serving organisations in the KRITIS segment is highly regulated and requires strict security compliance and certifications for the company itself and its billable employees.
As an independent systems integrator and service provider, Syserso Networks, headquartered in Hanover, has also made a name for itself over the past 25 years as a reliable partner for telecommunications providers, utilities and operators of critical IT and telecommunications networks.
With the support of financial investor Chequers Capital, ICT specialist Syserso Networks GmbH and IT service provider SHD System-Haus-Dresden GmbH have set the course for a joint future. The institutional investor has been a majority shareholder in Syserso Networks since 2021 and is now investing in the Dresden-based IT expert SHD.
The companies see enormous growth potential, especially in the KRITIS environment, as the requirements for future-proof IT and network infrastructures are constantly increasing.
“We are looking forward to the partnership and a long-term, trusting cooperation with SHD. With our committed and focused approach to expansion, we will strengthen our market positions.”
Naif Kiy, CEO of Syserso Networks
“We will continue to operate independently – just like Syserso Networks. With our combined expertise in complementary business areas, we will tap into new potential. In this way, we will secure the growth of both companies for the coming years.”
Dr. Frank Karow and Marco Graef, Managing Directors of SHD
