Exclusive Networks, a leading global specialist in innovative cybersecurity technologies plans, is contemplating an Initial Public Offering (“IPO”) on Euronext Paris, which will include a capital raise of up to approximately €260m of primary proceeds. The company announced the filing of its registration document with the French Autorité des marchés financiers (AMF), as the first step towards its contemplated Initial Public Offering.
The Group’s growth strategy is centred on driving underlying growth with existing vendors, in current and new geographies, attracting new vendors and customers, expanding its offering to meet customer needs and pursuing value-accretive M&A.
Jesper Trolle, Chief Executive Officer at Exclusive Networks said,“Exclusive Networks is a global cyber security specialist, with a strong track record of profitable growth. Our proposed IPO on Euronext is a natural next step for us, and recognises three vital pillars of our success – our people, partners, and growth strategy. First, without the know-how and talent of our people, our growth would simply not be possible. Second, we have built our success on strong, enduring relationships within the complex cyber ecosystem, with vendors and channel partners. Exclusive Networks is the partner of choice for more than 240 leading vendors. Exclusive Networks supports the growth and expansion plans of vendors, offering local support to enable them to reach more than 18,000 resellers around the world. Third, we have a clear strategy in place to continue to deliver growth, and an IPO will support our mission to help drive the transition to a totally trusted digital world.”
He added, “In the last 18 years we have made the journey from a small private company to a global cybersecurity specialist, with a 36% gross sales CAGR since 2013. Cybersecurity is a highly attractive market, estimated to be worth €58bn in 2020 and growing at a 9% CAGR from 2020 to 2026. The cyber ecosystem is getting more and more complex, the channel selling cyber products is fragmented, and technology is evolving very quickly to combat the growing sophistication in threats and cyber attacks. This creates demand for a cyber specialist like Exclusive Networks in the long-term, and we look forward to bringing even greater value to our vendors and partners, by executing on our mission to drive the transition to a totally trusted digital future.”
Exclusive Networks provides services to accelerate the sale of cybersecurity disruptive and digital infrastructure technologies on a global scale. Exclusive Networks helps cybersecurity vendors scale their businesses globally, and offering channel partners (such as value-added resellers, system integrators, telcos and managed service providers) expertise, disruptive technologies and services to fit the needs of their corporate customers. Exclusive Networks also works with several vendors offering solutions in specific sub-segments beyond cyber.
