The acquisition of Evicertia by Namirial, a platform company of Ambienta, a European investor specialising in environmental sustainability, was completed on 1 February 2022. Baker Tilly Corporate Finance advised the Namirial and Ambienta teams on this transaction.
The integration of Evicertia is Namirial's second international operation since Ambienta acquired a majority stake in May 2020. In 2021, Namirial achieved revenues of more than €70 million, recording organic growth of more than 20%, thanks to strong investments in management, organization, products and go-to-market. The strategy of M&A activities, designed to accelerate growth in international markets, is proving its effectiveness.
