Agilitas IT solutions, the U.K.-based global channel services provider, has completed a managed buyout (MBO) led by CEO Shaun Lynn and supported by equity investor Perwyn.

Perwyn has acquired a majority stake in Agilitas IT Solutions and will support the team’s growth ambitions. Those include international expansion, service acceleration and potential M&A.

Perwyn provides institutional backing to support growth initiatives. Richard Eglon is marketing director at Agilitas IT Solutions.


Agilitas’ Richard Eglon

“The new investment will provide many benefits for Agilitas channel partners by truly enhancing their service offering and therefore increasing their chances of winning new business opportunities,” he said. “This will be through a broader service portfolio, geographic expansion [and] leveraging a more extensive infrastructure — delivering economies of scale and enhanced service levels.”

Agilitas works with resellers, VARs and MSPs. Partners will continue to be pivotal in Agilitas’ business model, Eglon said.

“Building an ecosystem of trusted, strategic service partners is what Agilitas’ success has been to date,” he said. “We will be expanding this ecosystem even further as we continue to move into new technology areas and territories.”

Additional Benefits Coming to Partners

Agilitas partners will see no change in terms of service delivery, Eglon said.

“As time goes by, partners will gradually start seeing the additional benefits to come from the new investment,” he said. “This will ensure Agilitas remains aligned to the needs of our channel partners and remains intrinsic in providing the necessary support services.”

“Since leading the original MBO back in 2014, Agilitas has been on an incredible journey to position itself as the leading services partner of choice to the channel,” Lynn said. “The team and I share immense pride in this achievement. However, we are even more excited for what lies ahead.”

Perwyn shares Agilitas’ growth ambitions, he said. It also aligns to the company’s values and corporate culture.
