Rizing serves leading global customers with more than 1,250 employees around the world working from locations in the U.S., Canada, the Netherlands, Australia, the United Arab Emirates, Singapore and Malaysia.
“Rizing had a solid reputation in its core service when we acquired the company in 2018, and we saw enormous opportunity to strengthen their service offerings through strategic acquisitions,” said Chip Schorr, Senior Managing Director at OEP. “We worked closely with the senior management team to acquire and integrate five businesses that not only scaled the business, but also diversified Rizing’s revenues and significantly increased delivery resources,” added Carlo Padovano, Managing Director, One Equity.
The company’s acquisitions spanned the globe and diversified Rizing’s overall customer base. Acquisitions included U.S. companies Aasonn, 3DResults and Transcend Spatial Solutions, Singapore-based Synchrony Global, and Sri Lanka-based Attune Lanka. These acquisitions served to consolidate niches within the broader SAP ecosystem and strengthened all business verticals through revenue synergy and cross-selling opportunities.
