Travers Smith LLP has advised Arkadin, one of the largest and fastest growing providers of Unified Communications (UC) and Collaboration services on its acquisition of Applicable Ltd., a leading provider of Cloud Unified Communications and enterprise voice services.
Applicable’s 12-year track record of success in building, implementing and managing cloud-based Microsoft Lync and Skype for Business for large enterprises will enable Arkadin to expand its global reach and bring the value of Unified Communications services to large and global companies.
Applicable will continue to run its operations independently with the two companies collaborating on product development and long-term strategic planning.
This offer supplements the existing portfolio centred on Arkadin Total Connect, a multi-tenant Microsoft Skype for Business hosted service. This service provides a fully integrated UC ecosystem with voice-enabled Office 365, audio/web/video conferencing and contact centre.
The Travers Smith team was led by corporate partner and head of the Paris office Will Howard. The management sellers were advised by Katharine Mortimer at Withy King LLP.
