Founded in 2004 and generating a turnover of almost €140 million, Groupe INTM has become a major player in digital consulting and services, driven by its founding managing director, Georges Awad. Now it is partnering with Credit Mutuel Equity and BNP Paribas Développement to reorganise its capital and accelerate its growth, mixing organic and external growth.

Based in Levallois Perret, INTM operates along almost the entire IT value chain (not including the development of proprietary solutions and software publishing) by offering consulting services in information systems and positioning themselves in all issues of digital transformation and solutions integration. With 8 regional offices and 2 overseas establishments, in Morocco and Belgium, INTM has chosen to prioritise major key accounts.

This primary operation will allow Georges Awad to hold the majority of the share capital and the control of the group.

Credit Mutuel Equity is supporting this reorganisation of share capital with €14.2 million with the participation of BNP Paribas Développement as co-investor to the tune of €4.8 million. The financing of this operation is completed by senior debt brought by a banking syndicate led by BNP Paribas.

"Groupe INTM is a multi-disciplinary digital engineering company which stands out by its operational and financial performance, positioning itself on value-added missions. But above all we were convinced by the quality of the Group's human capital, which combines client proximity and career opportunities for their 1650 employees. We are delighted to invest with Georges Awad and support INTM in a new phase of development", explain Thierry Martin and Caroline Giral (Crédit Mutuel Equity).

"We are very pleased to participate in this primary operation which aims to give a new dimension to Groupe INTM who - we are sure - will succeed in capturing all market opportunities" add Philippe Molas and Delphine Larrandaburu (BNP Paribas Développement).

In a market driven by digital transformation, INTM intends to pursue its growth strategy by reinforcing its business expertise and strengthening its clients portfolio in France and Europe. Moreover INTM expects to participate actively in the consolidation of the digital engineering sector. For this purpose an additional financing line has already been negotiated with the banking syndicate. Georges Awad has also enlisted the services of Stéphane Descos (Ex-AKKA and Altran) to accompany him in the identification of targets and the implementation of external growth operations.

"The digital consulting services market is still very fragmented and not all players are going through the current period with the same capacity to adapt. With clients who expect ever more expertise and flexibility from their partners, the time is ripe for consolidation. With a robust and agile business model which depends 50-50 on technical assistance and transformation to service centers, INTM has a significant role to play" adds Georges Awad.
