Ayesa reinforces its commitment to AI through acquisition of Google’s leading partner in Spain, Emergya

Acquisition will position Ayesa as one of Google’s leading European partners.

Ayesa has completed six transactions and nearly tripled in size following A&M Capital Europe´s (“AMCE”) investment in 2022.

Ayesa, a global provider of technology and engineering services, has acquired Emergya, Spain’s leading provider of Google Cloud solutions and one of its first European partners certified in artificial intelligence.

Founded in 2003 and headquartered in Seville, Spain, Emergya employs more than 680 professionals. In addition to developing digital cloud-based products, Emergya specialises in large-scale technology transformations and managed services.

Cloud computing is currently one of the world’s fastest-growing technologies. This acquisition will allow Ayesa to expand its cloud capabilities with Google solutions and strengthen its position as an end-to-end provider of technology services, deepening its expertise in AI, data management and cloud-native software development.

The acquisition includes Proxya, part of Emergya Group and a specialist provider of outsourced IT solutions and software factory services for both large corporates and public sector organisations.

The transaction will also incorporate several major IBEX 35 companies into Ayesa’s client portfolio across various sectors, including energy, financial, technology, retail and the public sector.

Commenting on the announcement, José Luis Manzanares Abásolo, CEO of Ayesa, said: “The integration of Emergya will expand our expertise across Ayesa and open the door to many opportunities as one of Google’s leading European partners. It will also allow us to further strengthen our position among Spain’s top five digital service providers, as well as the one most valued by its clients”.

Víctor Fernández, CEO of Emergya, said: “Emergya will now form part of an impressive company that is undergoing a process of expansion, and we look forward to showcasing our experience and exceptional capacity for innovation”.

Ayesa is executing an ambitious strategic plan to further strengthen its position as a leading technology service provider in Spain. Emergya is Ayesa’s sixth transaction since A&M Capital Europe’s majority investment in 2022.

Arcano supported Ayesa as financial adviser for this transaction along with Pérez-Llorca as legal adviser. GP Bullhound acted as financial adviser for the shareholders of Emergya, along with Montero Aramburu as legal adviser.

The transaction is expected to be completed in the coming weeks.
