Apiary supported the primary buyout of G3 Comms with an acquisition-led investment thesis, promptly executing the transformational acquisition of CMS. Connect is well positioned to support its clients' increasing reliance on communication, data proliferation and digital transformation. In addition, the fragmented market provides scope for further acquisitions.
“Apiary was highly instrumental in the creation of Connect. They are very supportive of our ambitious plans to leverage our unique capability set and well-invested managed services platform, as we build scale through acquisitions.”
