Oakley Capital’s Oakley Capital Private Equity III (Fund III) has agreed to acquire PRIMAVERA Business Software Solutions (PRIMAVERA), a Portuguese specialist in business management software. 

The Company will be combined with existing Oakley Capital portfolio company Ekon, a Spanish provider of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software, to create a new group under the name Grupo Primavera, which will be the largest independent provider of business software in Iberia. The transaction is subject to regulatory approval.

Grupo Primavera will accelerate its deployment of cloud solutions organically through investment in product development and go-to-market initiatives, as well as through further acquisitions.

Peter Dubens, Managing Partner of Oakley Capital, says: “This is another example of Oakley’s ability to invest in founder-owned technology businesses and execute buy-and-build strategies. With the adoption of cloud technology in Iberia being behind the rest of Europe, we see significant value and further potential in growing the largest independent business software platform to service SMEs within the region.”
