    KBS Corporate successfully completes the sale of Taupo Consulting Limited to Purely Computing Ltd

    KBS Corporate has successfully completed a deal for Taupo Consulting Limited, an IT company specialising in all areas of IT infrastructure virtualisation.
    KBS Corporate advised on the sale of the Glasgow based business that was founded in October 2002 by Alistair Sutherland as a small VMware training company and has gradually developed into VMware consultancy.
    Purely Computing Ltd, a leading provider of information systems managed services, completed the acquisition on February 12 2014 for an undisclosed sum.
    This South Cambridgeshire based company was founded in 1994 serving an international client base of small to medium sized businesses and over the years have built a reputation for professionally led managed services.

    KBS – who have over 16 years of extensive knowledge and experience in completing hundreds of successful transactions in a variety of industry sectors – agreed an offer within six months of the IT company going to market.
    Taupo achieved VMware Enterprise Partner status in 2007 and continued their success until they were awarded VMware End User Computing Partner of the Year in 2011.

    The successful business will continue to operate from their office in Glasgow along with Alistair Sutherland who has decided to remain with the company. However, shareholder Tom Mill will be exiting after being involved with the company for many years.

    Tom Eatough, Deal Executive at KBS Corporate led the deal throughout to completion and said the acquisition has provided a platform for Purely Computing to extend their product offering in the growing cloud and virtualisation market.

    He added: “I am really pleased that we reached a successful conclusion and I wish Tom, Alistair and Purely Computing Ltd the best for the future.”
