Main Mezzanine Capital issues mezzanine loan to DMP to finance Management buy-out


The management board of DataManagement Professionals BV (“DMP”), Henny van der Riet, Eric Evers and Maurice Pastoor, successfully realized a management buy-out (“MBO”). Main has structured the deal and provided the mezzanine loan, while ING Bank provided the senior debt.

DMP (www.dm-p.com) delivers back-up, storage and hybrid cloud solutions to large corporates and institutions across over 50 countries. DMP serves over 200 clients, including larger companies in the Netherlands and abroad and several governmental institutions, with storage solutions, management of data and also disaster recovery to their own datacenter. DMP has a unique proposition to offer data management (including hardware, software, remote management and support) in a pay-per-use subscription model, called Data Management-as-a-Service (“DMaaS”). This is very interesting for clients, because their investments in data management will shift from investments (Capex) to operational costs (Opex). This will continue DMPs sustainable growth and recurring business model.

DMPs management ambition for the coming years is to continue their double digit growth and further internationalization.

Henny van de Riet (CEO DMP): “DMP has already a strong market position and the organization is ready for further expansion and internationalization. The demand for fast and secure access to data and storage is growing fast. With a focus on our DMaaS proposition we will continue our annual growth as well. At the same time we realized a buyout with the founder, whereby the management board has increased its shareholding“.

Lars van ’t Hoenderdaal (Managing partner Main): “I am happy that we are back in the backup business. In 2013 we have sold our stake in IASO where we have seen the enormous potential in this market. The interesting thing about data is that it grows every day. And data needs to be managed in a secure solution. With DMP we have found a market leader, which has potential to double in size by continuation of the current business and strategy. This perfectly fits within our profile”.
