GCA Advises Synova Capital on Its Acquisition of Syslink Group

We are pleased to announce that our client Synova Capital, an award-winning growth investor, has acquired Syslink Group, a leading provider of SAP services and software for enterprise customers. This is GCA’s 19th software transaction of 2017.

Syslink specializes in Application Performance Monitoring (“APM”) software for the SAP ecosystem. Xandria, the company’s core product, automates daily monitoring and management processes to simplify SAP administration. Syslink’s blue chip corporate customers, which include IBM, Deloitte and BMW, use its analytics platform to reduce costs, decrease system downtime and forecast upgrades.

The market opportunity for APM software is expanding rapidly as information technology infrastructure grows more complex and mission critical to businesses’ daily operations. Recently, the industry has experienced double-digit annual growth, and with Syslink’s focus on SAP’s 125 million users it has access to a large and robust addressable user base.

Alex Bowden, a Partner of Synova and a Director of Syslink, commented: “We are delighted to be partnering with the management team of Syslink. Businesses are ever more reliant on increasingly complex IT infrastructure and Xandria makes their systems more reliable and efficient. With a market-leading product, Syslink is well-placed to take advantage of exciting opportunities over the years ahead.”
