Maxima Information Group plc
Problem: Maxima is a company that was built through acquisitions.
The company decided to divest its document management systems business, EDMS,
to focus on larger-scale vertically oriented solution businesses.
For maximum return to Maxima, a buyer had to be found with a strategic need for a business such as EDMS,
and whose value perception would exceed the operating numbers.
Solution: The Catalyst Group focused on companies that would gain maximum leverage from EDMS's technology and its client base.
Result: Catalyst negotiated an acquisition by Top Info Technology Holdings,
a South African document management company, providing Top Info with a platform from which
to launch its entry into the European market.
