The Deal

Since acquiring Ciklum, Recognize Partners and the management team have steered the company through transformative growth in its digital projects division, and the company has expanded global presence through add-on acquisitions to enter new markets. The recent acquisition of Infogen Labs will allow Ciklum to expand its North American footprint, diversify its delivery model into new geographies and enhance its technical capabilities and offerings.
