Amper Group acquires 75.5% of Rubricall

On 16 October 2018, as part of the development and fulfilment of its 2018-2020 Strategic Plan, the Amper Group announced the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding for the acquisition of 75.5% of the shares of Rubricall, for a maximum outlay of €1M. Following this acquisition, Rubricall will be renamed Amper Rubricall.

The acquisition is aimed at the development of several projects and systems and with the objective of making Amper a technological benchmark once again. It will enable the Group to have its own software in the IT security segment and the development of systems aimed at multinationals and large public and private companies that require services in the field of security and communication, using Blockchain, among others, as a medium. These services have been demanded by the Amper Group's own customers and this acquisition meets that need.

Amper Rubricall will contribute a minimum Ebitda of 1.3 M to the Amper Group in 2019 through the development of proprietary technology and software, using Blockchain systems, resulting in significant Group synergies that will improve the economic performance of the subsidiary in the following years.

Technology Data Analytics
for M&A
Advanced data anlytics is a weapon". Intelfin is an artificial intelligence tool we use for investing and creating value in SMEs through competitive analytics and the enterprise environment.

IntelFin consists of a cognitive system, which, through the application of advanced analytical technologies, facilitates the automation of investment and financing decisions in the field of non-listed companies and especially SMEs in high-growth sectors.

The information related to these companies is characterized by their lack of transparency and heterogeneity; thus, it is necessary to develop an advanced analysis which is as much predictive as prescriptive and is developed in a natural language custom, suitable to obtain greater clarity and knowledge of the investment scope.

The IntelFin system focuses especially on analyzing the variables that define and influence the competitive environment of a sector and the positioning of a company, analyzing their influence on future value creation. Therefore, IntelFin supports strategic decision-making to senior management by resolving questions such as:

¿What are my competitors' priorities, strategies and expansion plans? Who's my competition? Which competitor is most likely to grow at a higher rate?
Which areas of activity/business models will receive the most investment? Which sectors are most attractive to investors?
Which companies are going to experience the most growth in the near future? Which companies are most likely to receive investment or be acquired?
