M&A Roundup: UBEO Business Services Acquires Seacoast Business Machines; Atlantic Business Systems Rebrands as Novatech

UBEO Business Services added yet another dealer to its stable, expanding its geographic footprint into New Hampshire with the acquisition of Seacoast Business Machines. Meanwhile, Atlantic Business Systems (ABS), which Novatech acquired this past summer, is transitioning its branding to Novatech.

It is believed to be the third deal made by UBEO in 2022, which also acquired Centric Business Systems and ADS Imaging Solutions earlier this year. In addition to Atlantic Business Systems, Novatech also obtained ManagedPrint this year.

SBM has established itself as the preeminent document management solutions provider in New Hampshire. Since 1984, they have been a well-respected company delivering products and services to the business community with a high level of integrity. With Seacoast’s two locations, UBEO will expand its East Coast footprint into another major market.

“Our goal from the beginning has been to buy high-quality companies that line up with UBEO’s customer-centric philosophy and the Seacoast team epitomizes those values,” said Jim Morrissey, president of UBEO. “Seacoast has a great reputation in the marketplace and by adding the power of UBEO, they will enhance their customer experience. New Hampshire is another great market for UBEO’s value proposition and strategy in the area. We will also be announcing another significant acquisition in the East very soon.”

While Seacoast is now a UBEO company, Seacoast’s local team will continue to remain in place. Terry Miltner, president of SBM, said, “We did not make this decision lightly. There are several companies we could have chosen to partner with, but UBEO exceeded our expectations. Every promise they have made through this process, they have kept. It is wonderful to work with a team that aligns so closely with our values.”
