Antuit Acquires Majority Stake in Amsterdam-Based YDatalytics
Extends Big Data & Analytics Services to Leading Companies in Europe
New York, NY – October 18, 2016 – Antuit, a global Big Data and analytics solutions company, today announced the acquisition of a majority stake in YDatalytics, a Dutch provider of supply chain, sales and marketing, and organizational analytics solutions and technology services. The acquisition further solidifies Antuit’s path to global leadership in the analytics industry.
“There is strong demand in Europe for the business-enhancing, analytics-driven solutions that we deliver,” said Neeraj Bhargava, Chairman of Antuit. “Acquiring a high-quality analytics business with top-notch client relationships in Amsterdam better positions us to serve leading companies on the Continent. This will complement the foothold we established in Europe when we set up our London office earlier this year.”
The deal provides YDatalytics with access to Goldman Sachs-backed Antuit’s global capabilities, resources and coverage. “This investment gives us the opportunity to work with multinational companies outside of Europe, while expanding the portfolio of services we can offer to global clients,” said YDatalytics founding partner Walter de Zeeuw.
The two companies have significant synergies, including a focus on analytics solutions for the retail, FMCG and financial services industries, and a philosophy that links financial rewards to the benefits clients realize through their services. They also share expertise in applying strategy consulting and execution capabilities to advanced analytics.
“Many of our clients recognize that the data they have is important, but they just don’t know what to do with it,” explained YDatalytics founding partner Fons Hoogeveen.
“We give clients the insights to empower better decision-making by extracting and using their raw data,” continued YDatalytics founding partner Yogen Singh. “We then educate them on how to use the data in a more sophisticated manner to fully leverage the power of analytics.”
Antuit and YDataytics created a joint management board to manage and expand their operations in Europe.
