At the time of the transaction, there were 6 “Bann” consultants that Transiciel did not want to take over at the same time as the company (Bann was no longer the leading software at the time). The seller therefore reclassified them with clients.
Negotiations were very difficult because In dreach consulting, which was presented during the audits as being profitable, was in fact largely in deficit.
