CDI Global Italy Advises Axioma on Acquisition by Zucchetti

Chicago, IL USA, Milan, Italy (June 9, 2021) – CDI Group Italy is pleased to announce they have successfully guided Axioma in their acquisition by Zucchetti.

Axioma is a Monza-based company that has been developing ERP and management solutions for companies in the manufacturing, service, and banking sectors for over 40 years, using innovative technologies and IT tools. 

Zucchetti is the Italian leader in the supply of software, hardware, and services. Zucchetti continues to invest to expand their offerings, both through internal research and development and through targeted acquisitions that can bring solutions and skills capable of satisfying the needs of vertical markets and integrating synergistically with the application platform created by the first Italian software company.

Zucchetti acquired a majority stake of Axioma, including call options, to reach a participation equal to the entire company capital. The transaction perimeter included the Axioma participation in a primary Swiss ERP company named CCE. CDI Global Italy acted as exclusive financial advisor of Axioma supporting the Axioma shareholders in the entire selling process which included a wide group of primary interested investors through which Zucchetti was selected for their extremely appealing proposition.  

Domenico Sibilio, equity partner and board member of CDI Global Italy, with over 20 years of experience in the middle-market M &A, stated, “The entry of Axioma into the Zucchetti group brings solid strategic benefits to both companies allowing Zucchetti to boost both horizontal and vertical expansion while leveraging the presence of Axioma in the banking industry and the high expertise of the Axioma technicians. It was an honor to assist Axioma and to deal with the Italian ERP systems leader with over 1B in sales.”
