MEDIA RELEASE
 

Acquisition of dicom:
ALSO Strengthens Solutions and Service Business

ALSO takes over dicom Computer-Vertriebsges.m.b.H., an Austrian Value Add Distributor. The acquisition is part of the systematic expansion of ALSO's Solutions and Services business and at the same time complements the company's portfolio of product categories and vendors.

For ALSO, the acquisition will give access to new interesting customer groups, mainly in the B2B and public sector. Dicom's expertise will also be an important part of ALSO's Solutions portfolio for its resellers. The company sees an increasing trend towards cloud-based or hybrid solutions in the data center sector. The knowledge of the dicom team in the design and installation of IT infrastructures will therefore be used to quickly expand the offering in this area.

At the same time, the acquisition means an expansion of the ALSO ecosystem on the vendor side, because not all of the vendors dicom works with - Citrix, Sophos, and Fujitsu with the full range of services - were previously part of the ALSO portfolio.

"The company's profile fits perfectly into our Solutions business model and will continue to drive ALSO forward in this area. We have the same mindset and are therefore convinced that the integration will proceed very fast and successful," said Gustavo Möller-Hergt, CEO of ALSO Holding AG (SIX: ALSN).

Dicom's customers, with whom the company generated revenues of approximately 30 million euros in financial year 2018/2019, will also benefit from the acquisition, which is still subject to the standard regulatory approvals. ALSO not only gives them access to new vendors and product categories. With ALSO's Service business model they can expand their offerings via the ALSO Cloud Marketplace towards cloud-based Workplace- or Device-as-a-Service solutions and thus enter the lucrative, usage-based as-a-Service business.
