inlumi is a unique full-service provider of Enterprise Performance Management & Analytics services – from advisory and implementation to operations – and Managed Services. The company’s 150 plus consultants have in-depth finance and technology expertise, which they use to help clients optimize their performance and decision-making, and thus ensure their future success.

In 2020 the company’s owners began a search for a new majority shareholder. The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic made this a challenging process. In May 2021, Nimbus stepped in and acquired the majority of shares in the company. Nimbus’ experience and expertise in driving growth, reshaping and integrating activities was a clear advantage. Additional benefits were the speed with which the deal could be concluded and the deal certainty to the selling shareholders despite uncertain market circumstances and outlook as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Group focus
Since then, a number of changes have been implemented to provide inlumi with an optimal platform for growth. This includes adapting the company’s organizational structure to reflect the new focus on group performance instead of individual countries and revising the incentives scheme accordingly.
Ironically, the COVID-19 pandemic that initially impeded the sales process has turned out to be a major driver of growth for inlumi. Consultants can work remotely, which has helped inlumi to optimize the use of operational hours by enabling them to work across borders. Due to this rapid growth the company is now looking to further expand its talent pool, among others by focusing on ways to increase its attractiveness as an employer – both now and in the longer term.

Opportunities for growth
As the demand for its services increases and with an organization in place that will enable it to identify and seize opportunities for further growth, inlumi can look forward to a very bright future indeed.
