Intergen acquisition by ASX-listed Empired creates largest Australasian Microsoft services provider
Posted on 21-Oct-2014 10:45. | Tags Filed under: News.



ASX-listed IT services company Empired Limited has bought one of New Zealand's leading IT services firms Intergen Limited for NZ$19.3 million. The deal creates the largest Trans-Tasman Microsoft services provider with 825 staff across 15 Australasian locations and one North American office.

Established in 1999 in Western Australia, Empired Ltd is a national IT Services Provider with a broad range of capabilities and a reputation for delivering enterprise class IT services and solutions.

All of Intergen’s 370 New Zealand and North American staff will continue to support clients under the Intergen brand. Intergen’s Australian offices will merge with Empired’s operations, where there is a strong alignment with Microsoft services including SharePoint and Dynamics CRM.

All Intergen directors and senior managers will remain with the business, and Intergen shareholders will become shareholders in Empired’s newly-enlarged business. Intergen Group CEO Tony Stewart says, “We have been growing Intergen’s operations in Australia for several years, and this deal accelerates our vision to become Australasia’s leading Microsoft provider.”

“I am very proud of the reputation we have built over 15 years and want to thank the many people and client organisations who have been part of the Intergen story. I look forward to being able to support our clients in new ways as a combined, larger business with greater depth across Australia and New Zealand.”

Empired Managing Director, Russell Baskerville, says, “Our clients will benefit from a broader range of services, backed by a strong Australian listed company that offers superior service and agility to its international competitors. Our combined organisation is positioned to take advantage of significant growth opportunities, capitalising on the burgeoning Microsoft opportunity with solutions clearly focused on ‘as a service’ and ‘consumption’ based models around cloud, mobility, big data/business analytics and the advent of social in the Enterprise.”
