It carries out network architectures, security and mobility, video, IPTV and collaboration, virtualisation and datacenter. Its client portfolio includes companies as well as telecommunications operators and public organisations that are looking for long-lasting ICT solutions adapted to their business.
Thanks to its high level of specialisation and its broad portfolio of services, Acuntia has established itself as a leader in the Spanish ICT infrastructure market. The company is headquartered in Madrid and has offices in Barcelona, Bilbao, Valencia, Seville, A Coruña and Las Palmas. It has also carried out projects in countries in America, Europe, Asia and Africa.
With a turnover of €90M in 2016 and a workforce of around 340 people, Acuntia has been growing steadily since its founding in 1991, generating positive returns of around 10% EBITDA, with significant cash generation. All things being equal, the company is on track to reach €100M in sales in 2017.
Moreover, the acquisition of Acuntia in 2015 by GPF Capital has only consolidated the company's growth in terms of turnover, profitability and solvency.
GPF Capital is a Spanish independent venture capital firm founded by Guillermo Castellanos, Lorenzo Martínez de Albornoz, Ignacio Olascoaga and Martín Rodríguez-Fraile. GPF Capital currently manages a fund of more than €100M invested by private investors from Spain and 11 Latin American countries. It operates in the Spanish mid-market segment investing between €10M and €20M of capital per transaction supporting the management teams of companies with clear growth opportunities.
GPF's first exit at Acuntia, acquired by Vinci Energies SpainThis is almost three times the investment made by GPF Capital in 2015. With this transaction, the private equity fund confirms the success of its investment model, based on identifying, acquiring and preparing Spanish SMEs for their subsequent sale to larger national or international strategic or financial groups.
The sale allows Acuntia to establish important synergies in sectors where Vinci has a strong presence, such as energy and industry. Acuntia perfectly complements the companies of Axians, the Vinci Energies Group's brand for the telecommunications sector, which provides a wide range of infrastructure and communications solutions and services.
In Spain, Axians manages a €12M turnover and specialises in telecommunications infrastructure for utilities such as Red Eléctrica Española and Endesa, and telecommunications operators such as Vodafone and Orange.
