Swaab has worked with its Meritas international legal network to provide advice to Plaut IT Australia (Plaut) on their acquisition of Baseliner, an offshore service provider in Malaysia.
Swaab partnered with Malaysian firm Zain & Co on the transaction which has allowed Plaut, one of the largest locally-owned providers of speciality SAP consulting and technical services in Australia, to expand its capabilities and offer a fuller service to its customer base. The deal further adds to Swaab’s capability in the IT services space.
“Adding offshore capabilities to our existing portfolio of expertise enables Plaut customers to leverage competitive advantage from globally distributed talent pools and allows us to provide remote services into the South East Asian region for local and global SAP customers” said Sebastian Moore, Plaut’s Chief Executive.
Baseliner is an SAP service partner for South East Asia and its primary focus is providing SAP Application Management Support. The company will run independently and be led by its Kuala Lumpur based Managing Director, Charles Sigmon. “Taking a controlling interest in Baseliner advances Plaut’s stated objectives of strengthening its SAP consulting services business in Australia. The complementary skill set of both companies will ensure Plaut delivers customers a competitive portfolio of SAP services onshore, nearshore and now offshore” said David Prior, Chairman
The deal was lead by partner Alistair Jaque with support from Associate Kelly Marshall.
