Deutsche Telekom’s enterprise arm has acquired Hungarian company ITgen as it looks to boost its offering to businesses in the central European country.

T-Systems Hungary will pay up to HUF1.2 billion (€3.85 million) for ITgen, with the total figure dependent on the financial performance of the business over the next three years.

The SAP technology and security specialist posted revenues of HUF800 million (€96 million) in 2016 and EBITDA of HUF300 million (€2.5 million).

T-Systems said it hoped to complete the deal before the end of the year.

In a statement, the operator said: “The acquisition of ITgen allows T-Systems to provide more comprehensive and therefore more competitive SAP services through acquiring competencies that are highly complementary to its existing portfolio.

“ITgen possesses unique competencies in SAP technology consulting, SAP GRC and SAP security.”
