    Partnership Strengthens Velosio’s Position as a Leading Specialized Cloud Services Provider in the Microsoft Ecosystem

    DUBLIN, Ohio–()–Velosio, a leading provider of digital transformation services, managed services, and managed cloud subscriptions for the Microsoft Dynamics ecosystem, today announced a strategic investment from Court Square Capital Partners (“Court Square”), a middle market-focused private equity firm with $7.7 billion in assets under management.

    Velosio brings over 33 years of experience in helping companies modernize applications, simplify operations, and leverage data to make better decisions.

    “As a cloud services company, we create bespoke and valuable solutions for mid-market and emerging enterprise companies. Our goal is to be a trusted guide and go-to cloud applications partner for our clients,” said Bob Knott, CEO of Velosio. “We see the partnership with Court Square as an exciting step in the evolution of Velosio given their deep sector expertise in IT services and track record of collaborating with management to drive growth.”

    Velosio has invested heavily in its team, IT and data capabilities, establishing itself as the leading provider of professional services and solutions for the broader Microsoft ecosystem led by its differentiated expertise in Microsoft Dynamics. Through the partnership with Court Square, Velosio is well positioned to continue its growth and further expand its industry footprint as a provider of innovative business solutions and cloud technologies for emerging and mid-market enterprises across a diversified end market.

    “Microsoft’s Cloud Solutions are expected to continue to grow at strong double-digit rates,” said Matt Dennett, Partner at Court Square. “We see tremendous fragmentation in the middle market partner ecosystem for Microsoft cloud-based products and think there is an opportunity to take advantage of the whitespace in Dynamics and adjacent platforms such as Power BI, Azure, and Microsoft 365.”

    “Given its leading market position, extensive expertise in its solutions, and proven track-record of successful organic and inorganic growth, Velosio presented all the hallmarks of a typical ‘Court Square deal’. We are excited to help Bob and the Velosio team execute on the next stage of their exciting strategic vision,” added Jeff Vogel, Managing Partner at Court Square.

    Baird served as financial advisor and Dechert LLP as legal advisor to Court Square. Guggenheim Securities served as financial advisor to Velosio.
