The global digital specialist founded in Brazil will boost its global operations and amplify its offer with the acquisition.
The movement is part of CI&T‘s M&A growth plan to amplify its capabilities and to build a stronger global market presence.
Dextra, and its North American brand Cinq, with 1,200+ experienced digital professionals, top-tier clients in Brazil and the USA, and a very similar culture (lean, agile, end-to-end) – will be added to CI&T’s global offerings. Dextra creates end-to-end digital products, from innovation & design all the way to running secure and scalable software, which fits perfectly with CI&T.
The plans are to expand the company’s global presence, increase the potential for nearshore opportunities, and, along with CI&T, offer wider, more comprehensive, and more robust solutions for clients.
The CI&T framework – an adhocratic management system with independent and decentralized decision-making – is the ideal foundation for new opportunities like Dextra to grow and prosper.
With the acquisition, CI&T adds 1,200+ experienced tech professionals and a very seasoned group of founders and senior management to its more than 4,000 people around the world, and clients such as Alelo, SITA, Serasa Experian, McDonald’s, among others.
“I am thrilled with the opportunity to grow and expand our operations together with Dextra, a company that we always admired and respected. The market demand is very high and together our offer is even stronger,” celebrates Cesar Gon, CI&T’s founder and CEO.
On top of providing a wider range of services to the market, this merger will extend even more the ever-growing numbers of specialized talent working at CI&T.
“Our success story with Dextra will be exponential and global, and we are very happy to co-build our next chapter with CI&T. We are very excited with this new phase we are heading to”, explains Eduardo Coppo, founder and CEO of Dextra.
Both companies share similar cultural building blocks, making it a perfect fit and one capable of generating fast and relevant business impact for clients.
The deal is subject to regulatory approvals, but CI&T and Dextra forecast aggressive growth once the market is very hot due to the accelerated transformation the world is facing right now.
