Trigon Advise on Public Consulting Group’s Acquisition of Librus from Oresa Ventures
Public Consulting Group (PCG) and its PCG Polska Z.O.O wholly owned subsidiary announced the acquisition of Librus, a leading provider of IT solutions for the education sector in Poland, from Oresa Ventures, a private investment firm. The Librus management team will stay in place and additional investments in personnel and technology are planned. Further terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
Founded in 2002 and headquartered in Katowice, Poland, Librus is well known for its e-DziennikandSynergia advanced student information systems (SIS), which currently serve more than 20 percent of Polish schools and 27 percent of K-12 students. The integrated IT solution responds to a variety of management and administrative needs of education institutions such as supervision, compliance, and effective communication with teachers, parents, and students.
“Our mission is to introduce schools to new technologies. We have always tried to be one step ahead of the market and have been building our solutions and gathering priceless experiences for over twelve years now,” said Marcin Kempka, President of the Board of Librus. “To keep our momentum, we need a partner with strong subject-matter expertise and a global reach. I am personally very pleased to have found that partner.”
PCG President, CEO, and Founder William Mosakowski attributes his Polish heritage to long-term business interests in Poland that led the firm to establish its first PCG Polska office in Lodz in 2010. A second office opened in Warsaw in 2012. For the education sector, PCG Polska offers a training center and online training tool to support managers and staff of educational and social welfare institutions; the EdPlan® web-based student case management and support system; and program consulting, training, and review services.
PCG Polska also recently acquired Partners in Progress, a Rzeszów, Poland-based software services provider to higher education institutions. With the investments in Librus and Partners in Progress, PCG Polska becomes a leader in education IT solutions in Poland and now employs nearly 200 Polish citizens.
