This acquisition is part of the Group’s strategy to actively pursue geographical expansion. It will allow Webhelp to offer its customers services in four new languages in the areas of customer experience where Webhelp is already widely recognised.

The deal is expected to be completed in August once all the relevant local antitrust approvals have been obtained. Webhelp will then have 90 centres across 27 countries employing 35,000 people. The turnover of the business in 2016 is expected to be US$1bn.

Olivier Duha and Frédéric Jousset, the two co- founders of Webhelp said:
“We are very excited about this acquisition and are delighted to be able to make this announcement today. GoExcellent is the best customer relationship firm in Scandinavia and the combination of their reputation in this region with our expertise for delivering great customer experience will greatly enhance our ability to offer our clients a seamless, quality experience across a greater range of languages and countries in Europe. This exciting development has been made possible by the support and belief of our new major shareholder, the investment fund, KKR.”

Terje Andreassen, CEO of GoExcellent said: “Through this acquisition GoExcellent will be part of a global company with the industrial strengths to support future development. Omnipresent digitalisation and rapidly changing customer behaviour changes the customer experience and the way we interact.
