SOLUTIONS 30: Janssens Field Services joins SOLUTIONS 30 to step up its growth in the Benelux countries and expand its capacity to serve pan-European customers

SOLUTIONS 30, Europe's leading provider of Solutions for New Technologies,
today announced the acquisition of 50% of the capital of Belgian company
Janssens Field Services, with the option to acquire the balance of the
capital within two years.

Janssens Field Services is a fast-growing company that offers a range of
technical services for telecom operators, utilities, IT solutions
integrators, hardware manufacturers and security companies. The company is a
leader in the Benelux market. It reported revenue totalling €29 million in
2015 and employs 500 highly qualified technicians.

This transaction gives the founders of Janssens Field Services a stake in
SOLUTIONS 30's capital. Together with the executive committee and key
management personnel, they will work closely with SOLUTIONS 30's management
to generate commercial synergies between the two companies' respective
customer bases and merge their operating platforms.

Commenting on this announcement, Koen Verbergt, Chairman and CEO and
co-founder of Janssens Field Services, said: "We are impressed with the speed
at which Gianbeppi Fortis and his teams have
built SOLUTIONS 30 into the company we see today and we are extremely proud
to be selected to operate and develop the Benelux market. Our combined
commercial reach now covers almost 70% of the European market for home and
business customers, with a single contract that applies to all our customers
wherever they are-in Brussels, Paris, Stuttgart, Amsterdam, Milan or Madrid.

Joining SOLUTIONS 30 to step up our growth was the obvious choice for Janssens
Field Services: we operate according to the same business model, the same
principle of partnership with our customers and-most importantly-we share the
same approach to valuing our human resources, since their expertise is what
ensures we deliver an outstanding service day after day. In addition,
SOLUTIONS 30's experience in acquisitions will further accelerate our
development in the Benelux market."

For Gianbeppi Fortis, Chairman of the Executive Board of SOLUTIONS 30: "We are
delighted to have finalised this tie-up with Janssens Field Services, a
company we are familiar with since 2011. We are particularly impressed by the
ability of the company's founders and their teams to position the company as
a leader in the provision of a range of technical services in the Benelux
countries"

For Karim Rachedi, Chief Operating Officer of SOLUTIONS 30 : " We will build
on Janssens Field Services' expertise and market knowledge to increase our
penetration of the Benelux market. The trend for our customers in Europe is
consolidation into larger groups, making it essential for us to have the
critical mass throughout the regions we cover to offer economies of scale."

In addition, SOLUTIONS 30 and BT have decided by common agreement to end
discussions with a view to SOLUTIONS 30 taking over British
Telecommunications plc in France's IT Professional Services business.
