ROFF joins Gfi Informatique to lead SAP technology within the group

ROFF, the portuguese leader in providing SAP solutions, has been bought out by the French group Gfi Informatique, a European leader in IT services, with more than 12,500 employees and a turnover in 2015 of nearly 900 million euros.

In order to pursue this successful journey, built over 20 years of existence, the agreement was struck whilst totally preserving the interest of ROFF's clients, employees and shareholders.

In the years to come, the operations of these two companies will be complementary, and it will be up to ROFF, as one of the major players in SAP in Europe, to manage all the activities of this technology, within the group, in all geographical areas. ROFF will also have the opportunity to be the leader in other areas that are not in the group now, such as the OutSystems technology.

"We are totally engaged in continued growth in all sectors and ROFF can only thank all its customers for the trust they have demonstrated over these 20 years in business, as well as all employees for their dedication that has made us a leading team, not only in Portugal, but also internationally."

Francisco Febrero, CEO of ROFF

ROFF's management teams are completely committed to their new shareholders, and are motivated to gain recognition as regional leaders in value-added services, maintaining high growth and solid sales, based on strong organic growth in new business areas and geographical locations.

ROFF's current administration consists of Francisco Febrero, Mário Oliveira and João Matos and will remain functional, and the ROFF brand will continue to be used in new geographical locations in every related business opportunity.

The Gfi group is developing new geographical locations, namely the Iberian Peninsula, Western Europe, Africa and the Middle East and expects to post sales of more than one billion euros for 2016.

"With ROFF and the support of its Management, Gfi Informatique has significantly strengthened its integration and maintenance services surrounding SAP technologies. By matching ROFF's unique positioning in the competitive landscape with the coverage of major European accounts operated by Gfi Informatique, our Group feeds strong ambitions in this market. This expertise will also strenghten our solutions services to new growth markets, such as Latin America and the MEA zone."
