British PC mega reseller Computacenter has hoovered up German outfit becom Informationssysteme GmbH.

London-based Computacenter will pay UCSG Holding Gmbh €2m for the operation, with a further €1.2m in the pot depending on the final shape of the balance sheet.

Computacentre says the deal "will strengthen Computacenter's position in the German IT systems market", while adding that the acquisition will "not have a material financial impact on Computacenter plc".

becom has turnover of around €120m. Its parent got into a little financial trouble earlier this year, with the becom operation reemerging as an independent company in September after an MBO.

becom has six offices across Germany. It is heavily locked into IBM, listing the x, p, i and z platforms. It also has an IBM Premier Business Partner accreditation. ®
