The Netherlands-based BearingPoint has acquired Prederi, a specialist UK public sector consultancy, for an undisclosed price.

Formed in 2012, Prederi offers expert advice, consultancy, training, and project and programme management. The company is said to cater to several UK public sector clients while generating steady revenue streams.

Prederi’s clients include the NHS, local government, regulators and various central government departments such as the Home Office, Ministry of Defence, Ministry of Justice, and the Department of Health.

The company’s capability spans finance, strategy, change management, digital and learning and development.

Prederi managing director Stewart Johns said: “Our passion has always been to provide a high quality and value for money consulting and training service to UK Central and Local Government and the NHS. Being with BearingPoint will enable us to accelerate our growth sustainably and to enhance and extend what we can do for our clients in today’s challenging climate.

“We look forward to working with new colleagues in the UK and Ireland and across Europe to share know-how and develop new solutions for the benefit of the full BearingPoint client base.”

BearingPoint said that through the acquisition, it will be expanding its expertise and capabilities in one of the largest and highly competitive public services markets in Europe.

Furthermore, the acquisition supports the Dutch company’s overall objectives for growth and strengthens its footprint in the UK while expanding its public service capabilities.

Prederi is also said to have a strong strategic, operational and cultural fit with BearingPoint’s existing UK business.

BearingPoint managing partner Kiumars Hamidian said: “With the acquisition of Prederi we are continuing our growth strategy in selected markets with consultancies that are highly focused and strongly differentiated. Prederi’s portfolio is a perfect complement to our public service strategy and supports our strategic growth areas.”

Headquartered in Amsterdam, BearingPoint is an independent management and technology consultancy, which operates in four units that cover the areas of consulting, business services, solutions, and ventures.
