Deal Flash

Application Software Technology LLC (AST), a leading end-to-end digital transformation solutions provider (backed by Recognize LP) in the US, has acquired Symatrix Limited. 

Symatrix is a leading IT and Oracle Cloud services provider working with public sector and enterprise clients in the UK. Founded in 2000, the company offers a full suite of digital transformation, implementation, application support and managed services, and is known for its product specialism across Oracle HCM & ERP, E-Business Suite and PeopleSoft. Symatrix is a Platinum Oracle partner, a position developed over 20 years, and is one of the few Oracle partners to offer a fully outsourced managed payroll service to its clients. 

We selected Oaklins Cavendish due to their industry knowledge, professionalism and international partnerships. They have lived up to, and exceeded, our expectations. Working alongside the Oaklins Cavendish team for over two years, they expertly guided us through all stages of the process with a clear and proven approach, working tirelessly with us to achieve that. Not only did they achieve a successful outcome for our shareholders, but we also found an acquiring organization that offers a fantastic cultural fit and true synergies for the next stage of the journey.
