Opens new markets for IT asset financing and leasing services; plans further geographic expansion in 2016
PARIS, FRANCE – December 14th 2015 – Exclusive Group, the value added services and technologies group, has extended the operations of Exclusive Capital – its financing and leasing division – to service new partners and end-customers throughout the Belgium/Luxembourg region. The expansion follows the successful approval of the relevant national regulatory authorities, opening the doors to an expected influx of business interest from local Exclusive Networks and BigTec partners, as well as the channel community at large. Further expansion into additional, strategically important countries is planned within the next three months.
“Belgium and Luxembourg are mature markets where we already have a strong local presence in the shape of BigTec and Exclusive Networks, and where we know there is growing demand for flexible IT financing and leasing services,” said Franck Laga, Managing Director of Exclusive Capital. “Exclusive Capital gives partners a rapid, simple way to answer their customers’ need for opex-based IT consumption, without exposing themselves to risk. Our services are 100% focused on IT assets and proven to close deals faster, improve cashflow and enable partners to pitch for bigger IT projects with confidence.”
Exclusive Capital’s main operations are in France, where the business has seen increased revenues since the acquisition of Fibail System in January 2015. These sales and back-office capabilities have been extended to enable contracts to be transacted on behalf of partners in Belgium and Luxembourg, as well as France. Further sales staff will be hired in early 2016.
“The Exclusive Capital division is an important part of the Group’s value-added services and technologies (VAST) strategy, and our goal is to bring its geographic footprint further into line with our global proposition,” said Olivier Breittmayer, CEO of Exclusive Group. “I am delighted that partners in Belgium and Luxembourg now have access to the competitive advantage that Exclusive Capital brings. We are committed to extending these services to new territories in due course.”
