Prism Facilitate Sale of Award-Winning IT Business

We are pleased to announce that the Prism team have facilitated the sale of award-winning IT company, React Computer Partnership Limited, to IT services investment group, Clipeum IT.

React Computer Partnership Limited (React) was established in 1997 by three brothers, Francis, Richard and Alan Pledger, and has since grown steadily in both size and reputation. Based in Suffolk, it is a trusted provider of a comprehensive range of IT support and managed services across the East of England. Maintaining a strong family business ethos has enabled React to build robust and long-standing business relationships with an enviable and loyal client-base.

Clipeum IT was established to partner with and acquire IT services businesses in order to maximise their potential and engender faster growth. The company is creating an interlocking group of IT service companies providing complete and secure IT solutions for SMEs throughout the UK. They will be retaining the React brand and its staff, with Alan Pledger continuing to run the day-to-day operations. Richard Pledger is staying on for a short time and Francis Pledger has retired.

Prism are experts in technology M&A with years of experience in the tech and IT services sector. They support owner-managers throughout the entire process of buying or selling a business; from exit or acquisition readiness planning, finding potential buyers or acquisition targets, through deal negotiations and due diligence, to completion and beyond. The Prism team expertly guided React’s three owners throughout the sale process, providing professional insight and advice at every stage along the way.

Alan Pledger, co-owner of React, says “In order to maintain the excellent company that has been grown organically for the last 25 years, fresh ideas and investment was seen as a necessity. It was always important that the excellent and dedicated staff were treated in the same manner, and to ensure the required potential to carry on their education to ensure our customers are using the latest technology as best as it can be. Clipeum IT met this criteria and has the proven experience to enhance the skills and provide additional business support to meet the future plans.”

Robert Fiske, Director of Prism, says “I am delighted to have been able to support the three brothers throughout the sale of React and in helping them achieve their individual goals. React is a superb business and I have no doubt will continue to thrive with Clipeum IT.”

Attila Vitai, OBE, Chairman of Clipeum IT, says “React has been at the forefront of IT since 1997, expertly servicing clients all over the country. The Clipeum team are delighted to have joined forces with the team at React and we all are incredibly excited for what is to come!”.
