The shares price of Digital Value, the IT group born out of the merger of Italware with ITD Solutions, climbed by 7% at 10.70 euros at the closure of the first day of trading on Aim Italia (see here a previous post by BeBeez). Digital Value raised 22.5 million of euros for a 25% publicly traded stake of its equity and will invest such resources in its organic growth and acquisitions. The company launched this ipo with the Spac-in-Cloud model available on the Italian Stock Market private placement platform Elite Club Deal and structured together with Electa Group (Simone Strocchi and Angela Oggionni). Ipo Club, the fund with a focus on pre-ipo deals that Azimut and Electa Ventures created, acted as cornerstone investor. Digital value has sales of 259 million and an ebitda in the region of 19.6 million. The controlling shareholders are Massimo Rossi (Italware founder), Carlo Brigada (chairman of ITD), and Riccardo Benedini, and further sector entrepreneurs. Founding shareholder accepted a price adjustment shares agreement. Therefore their stake will diminish if Digital value doesn’t achieve few financial targets (see here a previous post byBeBeez).
