Converge Technology Solutions has acquired Interdynamix (IDX), a business solutions and engineering systems integrator for C$32.3 million (US$25.82 million).

This is technology M&A deal number 308 that ChannelE2E has covered so far in 2022. See more than 1,000 technology M&A deals involving MSPs, MSSPs & IT service providers listed here.

The deal's valuation was roughly 5X annual adjusted EBITDA for the year ended December 31, 2021. That's well-below MSP-oriented valuations, which suggests most Interdynamix revenue represents project work rather than more valuable monthly recurring revenue (MRR), ChannelE2E believes.
