Convergence Partners exits Dimension Data

27 Jul 2017

Convergence Partners Investments (Convergence Partners) - an investment firm focused on the TMT sector in Africa - has exited its investment in specialist IT services and solutions company, Dimension Data Middle East & Africa (DiData).

Convergence Partners first invested in DiData in 2004 as part of the original DiData B-BBEE transaction and remained invested until June 2017. The contractual investment term ended in September 2016 and Convergence Partners and DiData negotiated a consensual exit to the investment.

Convergence Partners has now fully exited its shareholding in DiData and Andile Ngcaba has stepped down from the various group Boards on which he served and as Executive Chairman of DiData.

Convergence Partners continues to invest in TMT companies across sub-Saharan Africa that it believes will deliver enhanced returns for investors, while underpinning continental development.
