Convergence Partners’ pan-African digital service provider platform inq. Holdings, formerly Synergy Communications, has acquired Vodacom Business Africa’s operations in Nigeria, Zambia and Cote d’Ivoire.
There are further plans to acquire the Cameroon operations, pending regulatory approvals.
The transaction will grow the regional footprint of inq. as a leading enterprise solutions provider to 13 cities in seven countries across Africa, including its existing operations in Botswana, Malawi and Mozambique.
“Under the inq. banner the company will embark on the next phase of building a unified pan-African cloud and digital service provider, bringing to market a very relevant suite of next generation technology solutions in the fields of Edge, artificial intelligence, network function virtualisation and cloud,” said Convergence Partners CEO Brandon Doyle.
