Satyam to acquire S&V Management Consultants

Satyam Computer Services has agreed to acquire S&V Management Consultants, a Ghent, Belgium-based supply chain management (SCM) consulting firm. The $35.5 million, all-cash purchase significantly reinforces Satyam’s supply chain strategy capabilities.

As a part of this transaction, Satyam also acquires an innovative business decision support software called Equazion, a sophisticated supply chain performance management suite that enables business decisions from a macro perspective.

S&V was founded in 1992, and has offices in Belgium and the Netherlands. The $15 million firm develops supply chain strategy and performance, and supply chain process excellence solutions, largely for manufacturing and pharmaceutical companies and public entities. S&V features 60 consultants, all of whom are six sigma-trained and APICS-certified, and fluent in English Dutch, and French.
