ITRenew Acquires eSISO

Del

Silicon Valley-based ITRenew, Inc. (“ITRenew”) announced the completion of its acquisition of ESISO, LLC (“eSISO”), an industry leader in the remarketing and remanufacturing of enterprise assets, based in Los Angeles, California.

ITRenew and eSISO have been partners for over seven years and the combination was borne from a cultural alignment on prioritizing innovation, delivering first class customer service and ensuring the highest level of ethical standards and employee satisfaction. The combined entity will boast nine processing facilities; two engineering offices; a global presence with locations in the United States, Europe, South America and China, and employ a workforce of more than 350 people.

Calling it a “game-changer for us as well as our industry,” ITRenew CEO Aidin Aghamiri said, “The circular economy requires specialists who will refurbish, reuse, remanufacture, and resale the valuable components inside data center equipment. With the acquisition of eSISO, we believe that we have created a unique organization that can provide all of those services under one roof. We are excited to bring our clients a set of truly differentiated services and capabilities.“

Loddy Chao, CEO of eSISO added, “We are excited to join the ITRenew team. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to partner with ITRenew to build something special. We are humbled, excited, and ready to get to work.”

Backed by private equity firm ZMC, ITRenew is a market leading global IT lifecycle management solutions company. At the heart of ITRenew’s services is its leading datacenter erasure software, Teraware, which is complemented by worldwide logistics management capabilities. The eSISO acquisition comes off the heels of ITRenew’s acquisition of Splitted-Desktop Systems (SDS) in June 2018, which added world-class open-hardware engineering capabilities to its suite of services.

eSISO specializes in enterprise asset acquisition, remarketing and remanufacturing. With a global footprint, eSISO works with partners around the world to deliver quality IT hardware and solutions, with an emphasis on prompt delivery and exceptional customer service.

Aghamiri and Chao pointed to the combined company’s focus on data security, noting that, “As our clients face challenges never previously encountered in the hyperscale data center ecosystem, they must rely on a solution-oriented partner to navigate data security, engineering and operational nuances around asset decommissioning. We believe the combination of ITRenew and eSISO will provide a comprehensive set of solutions that have previously never been available to the industry.”

Sidley Austin LLP acted as legal advisor to ITRenew. Covington Associates and DLA Piper LLP served as financial advisor and legal advisor, respectively to eSISO.

Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
