Advising Encora on its acquisition of Softelligence

We have advised Encora, a global Next-Gen product engineering provider on signing a definitive agreement for the acquisition of Softelligence, a Romanian software engineering services provider to establish Encora's first delivery centres in Europe. 

Headquartered in Scottsdale, Arizona and backed by renowned private equity firms Advent International and Warburg Pincus, Encora is the preferred innovation partner to some of the world’s leading technology companies. It provides next-gen services such as Predictive Analysis, Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, IoT, Cloud, and Test Automation. 

The strategic expansion bolsters Encora's capabilities to deliver nearshore services to clients in Europe as well as the Americas, Asia Pacific and Australia. The transaction is subject to customary regulatory approval and is expected to close in mid-2023.
