The Novian software and IT infrastructure services group has made full settlement in the transaction to acquire the software services company Elsis PRO. It did so on 26 May this year, as per the agreements on the purchase and sale of the shares of Elsis PRO. The final value of the deal, at EUR 1.865 million, was determined after the preparation of Elsis PRO’s audited financial statements for 2021, on the basis of the EBITDA figure.
The Novian group company Novian Systems signed the agreements to acquire 100% of the shares of Elsis PRO on 14 September 2021. The international audit firm Rӧdl & Partner audited Elsis PRO’s financial statements.
“Last year was a time of expansion for Novian, and the acquisition of Elsis PRO contributed significantly to that. It strengthened the group’s ability to provide artificial intelligence services while also expanding its expertise in the fields of aviation, space and energy and its operating geography in countries of the European Union. The strategic partnership being developed with the Elsis group also offers new promise,” Novian group CEO Evaldas Rėkus said.
“We are pursuing partnership not only by continuing the joint projects that were begun, using Elsis PRO for software development work and acting as a technology partner for the Novian group in the field of energy, but also by seeking new points of synergy in the areas of big data, environment and defence,” said Arūnas Gedvila, the CEO of the Elsis group and a member of the board of Elsis PRO.
