Datatec subsidiary Logicalis Group has acquired iConsult (Jersey), a Channel Islands based provider of hosted desktop and mail solutions. The transaction will be made through Logicalis’ wholly owned local subsidiary Logicalis Jersey.

The transaction will strengthen the current IT services positioning of the business which is ideally suited to fiduciary customers headquartered in the Channel Islands.

Almost all iConsult’s annual revenues of approximately $2-million are annuity in nature. iConsult will be integrated with Logicalis’ existing Channel Islands operation. With Logicalis’ current hosted services being based in Guernsey the Transaction means Logicalis is now better placed to provide cloud and hosted desktop services to the whole Channel Islands.

Jens Montanana, Datatec’s chief executive comments: “This acquisition adds scale to the Logicalis Managed Services offering in the Channel Islands which it acquired through the acquisition of the European subsidiaries of 2e2 in March this year. We can now deliver cloud-based and hosted desktop and BYOD services to a larger customer base in the Channel Islands and increase Logicalis’ revenue annuity base.”
