emagine Consulting to acquire Peak Consulting Group

emagine Consulting (formerly ProData Consult), a leading supplier of business and IT consulting services backed by the leading Nordic private equity sponsor Axcel, has signed an agreement to acquire the Danish/Norwegian management consultancy, Peak Consulting Group. It is emagine's third acquisition in under a year (together with the acquisition of emagine Group SAS in France and AspiraCon Limited in Ireland) where Plesner acted as lead legal counsel to emagine and Axcel.

Peak Consulting Group, established in 2006, is one of Scandinavia's leading management consultancies and course providers. Since its establishment, the company has been a preferred alternative to the large established IT and management consultancies. Headquartered in Copenhagen and with a branch in Oslo, Peak Consulting Group engages more than 150 experienced IT and management consultants on a daily basis. 

Peak Consulting Group is focused on assisting clients within the public sector and major Danish and international clients with their most complex and critical projects. The customer portfolio includes large private companies, ministries and agencies, regions, and municipalities.

emagine, formed in 1994 as ProData Consult, is a leading supplier of high-end business and IT consultancy services in Europe, engaging over 4,500 consultants and targeting over DKK 4 billion in revenue for 2022. emagine's acquisition of Peak Consulting Group forms the latest strategic step in realizing emagine's ambition to become the European market leader in business and IT consultancy services.

Axcel is a leading Nordic private equity firm with a total committed capital of more than EUR 2.6 billion across six funds.

The transaction is subject to customary regulatory approvals and is expected to be finalised by the end of 2022.

Plesner's core M&A team on the transaction was Henrik Rossing Lønberg, Kristian Vinter Bisgaard and Isolde Hede Søe.
