Parabellum Investments picks up India operation of IT specialist The Column Group


Parabellum Investments has bought the India business of The Column Group, a US-based privately-owned technology consulting, systems, and services provider it acquired with The Acacia Group earlier this year.

Column India has a workforce of around 180 people providing IT services to international corporate clients.

The company specialises in implementing BMC projects and solutions, in areas including cloud computing, IT service management and operations, and had revenues of around $5m in the last financial year.

Rami Cassis, founder and CEO of Parabellum said, “We see India as a tremendous destination to do business and expect it to benefit from the exodus of many businesses from China.

“Covid-19 has exposed a dangerous over-reliance on China by the West, and governments and multinational companies are now re-assessing their supply chains.

“More culturally aligned, and closer, India is a great alternative.”
