NautaDutilh assists long-standing client Keensight Capital and its portfolio company Sogelink with the acquisition of GOconnectIT Group B.V. (also known as LOCATIQS Group). With this acquisition, a leading pan-European construction technology champion has been created.
The LOCATIQS Group was founded through the combination of Dutch software companies GOconnectIT and Geodan in 2021. It has since established itself as the Netherlands' leading specialist in product software solutions and complementary consultancy in the geographic information systems and field service management markets. By joining forces, the new group is able to offer its clients a strong value-add proposition ranging from the first sketches of an asset right through to its full digital twin.
“We are delighted Keensight Capital and Sogelink trusted us to help them with this exciting transaction. It was a real pleasure working with them. Big thanks to the full Keensight Capital, Sogelink and NautaDutilh teams that helped bring this deal to close", says partner Olaf Baks.
