Ridgewall are one of the UK’s leading providers of Managed IT and Print Services, focussed on the SME market. Backed by a strong management team, the business has grown rapidly in recent years through its high quality service and product offering. 

The deal also saw the simultaneous acquisition of Qdos, a specialist IT solutions provider to the international hospitality industry. 

The now enlarged group, with the support of Inflexion, are targeting continued growth across their key SME markets both domestically and abroad.

BDO provided M&A, financial  and tax due diligence services to support the transaction to completion.

“BDO supported our deal team through every step of the process, providing valuable industry insights and advice. BDO was reliably thorough and a huge value add to our team in a complex transaction. We look forward to working together again and would not hesitate to recommend their team to our peers.”
Ben Long – Partner – Inflexion

“It is very rewarding to see two high quality IT businesses such as Ridgewall and Qdos come together alongside a strategic partner like Inflexion. An exceptional result in a multifaceted process such as this could not have been achieved without the dedication of all parties involved and we look forward to seeing the enlarged group continue to go from strength to strength”
