Intys makes another acquisition in France
This is the first acquisition the Belgian consultancy firm completed since Omnes invested in the company in July 2019. Based in Paris and Lille, Univers Retail is an independent management and operational strategy consulting firm specializing in the B2B and B2C distribution sectors. It supports major retail chains from defining their strategy to its operational implementation. Univers Retail has 60 employees and generated around EUR9 million in turnover in 2019.
This acquisition fits perfectly within the strategy defined by shareholders: to allow Intys to enter a new phase of its development through external growth to become a leading European player. With Univers Retail, Intys is strengthening its presence both in France and also in the distribution sector.
The combination of know-how and skills of Univers Retail and Intys will provide a lasting competitive advantage. However, beyond the obvious synergies, it is the management culture of Retail Univers, valuing entrepreneurship, excellence, and responsibility, that has reassured the Partners of the merits of this deal.
