Geodesial lbo with Keensight Capital

The leading developer and distributor of infrastructure design software welcomes Keensight Capital to accelerate its development

Keensight Capital replaces CAPZA as majority stakeholder of Geodesial, a leading developer and distributor of CAD (Computer-Aided Design) and CAE (Computer-Aided Engineering) software for infrastructure.

Based in Nantes, France, Geodesial is specialized in the development and distribution of software solutions for infrastructure professionals.

Strong of approximately 80 employees and 4 offices in France, Hungary and Canada, and over 30 years of experience in the CAD / CAE business, Geodesial benefits from an overall market share of approximately 70% on the French market. Since 2017, and the arrival of David Le Roux and CAPZA as stakeholders, the company has experienced a strong and steady double-digit annual growth.

Today, Geodesial has successfully developed a loyal customer base of 6,000 clients including public agencies, students and schools, as well as geomatics and civil engineering companies, representing over 34,000 users. The company benefits from a very low churn as the software are deeply embedded in the workflow and appear as mission critical tools.

Undisputed leader, Geodesial is strategically well positioned in the AEC (Architecture, Engineering & Construction) software market, a sector with high barriers to entry driven by construction digitalization catch-up, BIM adoption and increased regulations.

Thanks to its international network and recognized IT expertise, Keensight Capital will support the company’s organic growth as well as develop an active build-up strategy, especially in new geographies.
