IT Lifecycle Management provider Xllnc is sold to Norvestor, supporting their next growth phase

“The team at Stella EOC was very professional, truly knowledgeable in our space and really nice to work with. Since 2010 we have built Xllnc from the ground up with the intent to ultimately bring in a financial investor that can dramatically accelerate our growth. As a major step in that journey, Stella EOC worked tirelessly alongside us for 18 months to maximize the value of Xllnc, helping us identify and acquire Timetech and Supplies Team, which were highly synergetic additions to our core operations. Ultimately, in an efficient and timely process, they found the perfect partner in Norvestor to help us take our company to the next level.”

Gunnar Fransson – Chairman, Xllnc

“We know Stella EOC very well and were pleased with them representing the owners of Xllnc in this sale process. They ran a swift and exclusive process, and we are happy that they selected us as one of few investors who got access to this great company and management team. They managed the process in a dynamic and collaborative way that handled the emotions and objectives of both parties, eventually creating a compelling transaction for all parties and the future of Xllnc.”
