John van Beek, Patrik van Gelder and Patrick Joosten lacked a unified view of the future of their company when they started the sales process of Iquality in the autumn of 2021. The three shareholders decided to keep all their options open and found in Broad Horizon the perfect buyer for their company, which specialises in design, development and business applications and website support.
Core values such as growth, cooperation and the sharing of knowledge are highly valued in Broad Horizon’s buy-and-build strategy. Its companies, located throughout Europe, cooperate in the areas of cloud and platform, data and AI, and business applications. “From the very start, the interest in the company was very serious, much was negotiable and soon it became clear that working together would lead to a great deal of opportunities for the future,” according to M&A manager Willem Mulder, who guided the process with consultants Jannick van der Horst, Anthony Gelici and legal specialist Simone Kriekaart.
