Acquisition - 2020

Acquisition of Névox by DFM

Largillière Finance helps Groupe DFM to purchase Névox, a company specialising in IT and telephone solutions management

As part of its growth strategy, Groupe DFM (€38 million turnover - 180 employees in 2019) announces the acquisition of the Lyon company Névox, consolidating its local ties

Groupe DFM continues its consolidation. Following several acquisitions over the past year, including MM Diffusion in late 2019, Groupe DFM has purchased the Lyon company Névox.

Founded in 2005, the target company specialises in managing IT and telephone solution systems for Lyon businesses. This means Groupe DFM acquires an extra 200 clients in the Auvergne Rhône Alpes region, for which Névox manages all IT systems, hardware, hosting, user support, solution integration (CRM, EDM, ERP, BI), both on-site or in the cloud. Groupe DFM also takes over an additional one million in added revenue and five employees, who will join the Lyon office by the end of the year.

Owned and managed by Hervé Boileau since 2017, Névox also offers services, as it organises training for its clients each month.

Groupe DFM reports turnover of €38 million and has 180 employees. With around twenty external growth operations in ten years, the Ile-de-France group now intends to step up its presence in regions where it already does business (Hauts-de-France, Rhône-Alpes, PACA and Ile-de-France), but also to develop its “e-security” activity. As a reminder, it has four areas of expertise: printing, IT, telephones and e-security.

Founded in 2002, Groupe DFM has rapidly become a major figure in the field of printing solutions and systems in France. Supported since 2014 by the Bpifrance fund, Groupe DFM now offers its clients a comprehensive offer based around four complementary businesses: IT, telecoms (operators and equipment), security (alarms, CCTV, access control) and printing and document management (EDM).

Groupe DFM now has 180 employees and €38 million turnover, supporting over 6,000 clients across France through its offices in Ile de France, Lyon, Lille and Toulon.

About Névox (www.nevox.fr/)

Founded in 2005, Névox specialises in managing IT and telephone solution systems in the Lyon region. The company was managed by Hervé Boileau from 2017 onwards.

“We share Névox’s values regarding close ties, and we both want to satisfy our customers by offering concrete solutions for their needs. With this buyout, Névox customers will keep that close link which has worked so well for many years, whilst being able to access the range of services offered by Groupe DFM, which are resolutely focused on their corporate needs. This shared expertise around problems linked to printing, IT, telephones and e-security is one of DFM’s main strengths. They will benefit from a single point of contact and maximum efficiency in responding to their needs”
