Lisam Systems acquires EcoMundo with the support of Keensight Capital
Lisam Systems (“Lisam”), a leading global provider of Environmental, Health & Safety (“EH&S”) compliance management software solutions and services, today announces that it has closed its second acquisition this year – EcoMundo (“EcoMundo”), an international specialist of regulatory and compliance software solutions and services in chemicals and cosmetics – with the support of its investor Keensight Capital, one of the leading private equity managers dedicated to pan-European Growth Buyout investments. This follows the acquisition in March 2023 of SDSpro, a US-based chemical-related software provider.
Founded in 2007, EcoMundo provides EH&S regulatory and compliance software and services solutions for chemicals and cosmetics. The company has a comprehensive understanding of over 100 international regulations and serves over 650 clients, from large international corporations to SMEs and start-ups, across over 50 countries worldwide.
By integrating EcoMundo’s cosmetic-focused SaaS solutions into its software suite, Lisam will expand its offering beyond chemicals-focused solutions. Additional synergies will also be reached on the chemical-related software front by integrating the offerings of both Lisam and EcoMundo. Finally, EcoMundo’s six international subsidiaries (i.e. UK, South Korea, India, Italy, Spain and Canada) will further reinforce Lisam’s global footprint, creating the undisputed global leader in its space.
Michel Hemberg, Lisam CEO, commented: “Following the acquisition of SDSpro in the US in March 2023, the acquisition of EcoMundo is another important milestone for us. We are proud that Keensight, just a year after its initial investment in Lisam, is fully supportive of our expansion plans in a sector that enjoys healthy profits and fast-paced growth. We welcome the team from EcoMundo into the Lisam family and look forward to our future fruitful and exciting journey together.”
Grégory Agez, Partner at Keensight, concluded: “We are pleased to reinvest further in Lisam to support its acquisition of both EcoMundo and SDSpro, which is in line with our ambitions to consolidate Lisam’s expertise in the chemical regulatory space. The integration of EcoMundo will expand Lisam’s position in the cosmetics sector and further accelerate its growth. We are looking forward to capitalizing on the EH&S industry’s prevailing growth through both organic expansion and future additional value- accretive acquisition opportunities.”
