Sensa purchased by Crayon Group
Crayon (OSE: CRAYON) a global leader in digital transformation, has announced a purchase agreement with Sensa ehf., an Icelandic IT services company.
The transaction will strengthen Crayon’s ability to provide digital transformation services for all customers and partners. Delivering value-added services is a key priority for Crayon as it expands its capabilities in the global market.
Sensa, owned by Siminn hf. (ICE: SIMINN), provides hosting, cloud management and operations services as well as unified communications and security solutions to corporations.
“This acquisition will support Crayon in expanding the value chain into managed services for multicloud environments and further accelerate Crayon’s global service operations,” said Crayon Group CEO Torgrim Takle. “Sensa has a long and robust track record with strong performance and outlook. In addition, their customer obsession made them the ideal company for us to acquire. We are excited for Sensa to join Crayon Group and the growth opportunities this will bring.”
The agreement is subject to approval by the Icelandic Competition Authority. Sensa has about 120 employees and is based in Reykjavík, Iceland.
