Paris, June 15th, 2023,
Following a competitive process, DDA & Company advised Yves Dalbergue and Eliane Dalbergue-Poggi in the divestiture of Uniformatic to Opticom Services. Founded in 1985 and based in Neuilly-sur-Marne, Uniformatic specializes in the design, manufacture, and distribution of a wide range of standard and specific equipment dedicated to VDI network infrastructure and PC connectivity.
Acquired in 2002 by Yves Dalbergue and Eliane Dalbergue-Poggi through an MBI, the company benefits from a significant commercial strength and a unique omnichannel distribution in France, combining electrical and IT distribution networks, professional building material stores, and direct sales.
Founded in 2003 and based in Maubourguet, Opticom Services specializes in the production and distribution of a wide range of products dedicated to VDI network infrastructure (optical jumpers, pre-connectorized cables, optical drawers, pigtails, splitters, optical couplers, pass-throughs, adapters, attenuators, etc.).
The integration of Uniformatic will accelerate the development of Opticom Services by strengthening its market access through electrical and IT distributors.
Yves Dalbergue and Eliane Dalbergue-Poggi, leaders of Uniformatic, state: “We have been committed to structuring Uniformatic and evolving it to its current position. But above all, we have prepared it for future challenges and market changes. The new entity will see its copper and optical product ranges strengthened in both breadth and depth. To ensure this project’s success, we will support the buyers during a transition period.”
Thierry Wurtz, leader of OPTICOM Services, adds: “We are proud that Eliane Dalbergue-Poggi and Yves Dalbergue have chosen OPTICOM Services to continue the development of UNIFORMATIC. This acquisition is excellent news for our respective clients and employees: it combines two French companies that share the same values in customer service quality and complementary product ranges, supported by experienced, agile, and responsive teams.”
Agnès Marossero, Partner at DDA & Company, concludes: “We are very pleased to have accompanied Yves Dalbergue and Eliane Dalbergue-Poggi in this operation, allowing them to pass on Uniformatic to a family group sharing the same values of entrepreneurship, team spirit, and CSR.”
In this divestiture operation, the DDA & Company team consisted of Agnès Marossero and Grégoire Bizouerne. This transaction once again illustrates DDA & Company’s expertise in the B2B distribution sector.
