The European leader of digital solutions for legal professionals, Septeo recently acquired three companies near Paris. With 30 years of experience, the Lattes-based group is increasing its appetite for international business and has plans to hire.
Objective: doubling export salesBy successively acquiring three companies in the Paris region – La Gestion Intégrale, Novatim, and Appliwave – in the last quarter of 2019, Septeo reinforced its strengths, namely real estate and the Cloud, while diversifying its activity in the telecom sector. Septeo now comprises 14 companies, employs 1,400 people, and claims over 120,000 users and sales revenue of 150 million euros, up 20% in 2018-2019. Already present in Belgium, Tunisia, the United States, Canada, and Dubai, Septeo plans to continue its international growth.
The group hired 350 new employees in 2019. A record that Septeo hopes to break every year!
“We are assessing other acquisition projects in Europe and North America, with the goal of increasing exports from 12% to 25% of our revenue within the next five years,” announces Philippe Rivière, who also has similar ambitions with respect to hiring additional staff. “One of the major advantages of the Montpellier Métropole area is the momentum brought by its students and its extensive resources in terms of brainpower. We can find people with interesting profiles here faster than in Paris.”
