The private shareholders of Vcomm have sold the company to Koesio.

Vcomm is the leading distributor of Ricoh office products in Belgium and Luxemburg. The company operates with a team of 10 people, generating approximately US$4.8 million turnover annually for the past three years, with a high EBITDA margin of around 40%. The products include copiers, printers, wide format printers, digital duplicators, production printers, interactive whiteboards and projectors. Vcomm has a portfolio of more than 3,500 clients, entirely made up of self-employed professionals, VSEs and SMEs with less than 50 employees.

Koesio (formerly C’Pro) is a France-based company engaged in distributing photocopiers, printing and information technology systems and providing data processing and internet services. Koesio supports all types of organizations in their digital projects, from very small businesses to large public and private accounts. Koesio has been growing over the last 30 years mainly through its buy-and-build strategy (130 acquisitions). The company has 2,700 employees in more than 180 agencies and generates a turnover of US$765 million.

Oaklins’ team in Belgium acted as the exclusive M&A advisor to the shareholders of Vcomm in selling 100% of the shares to French private group Koesio.
