Sodexo Benefits & Rewards Services has been a minority shareholder of our company since late 2017. In order to further develop our cooperation, Sodexo Benefits & Rewards Services has purchased the entire share capital of Eazybreak Oy on 30th June 2020.
No changes to daily activities, global opportunities improved
This acquisition does not affect Eazybreak Oy’s daily activities in any way. Eazybreak will stay as Eazybreak. We will keep working with our current staff and already outlined strategy, and keeping our head office in Helsinki, Finland. However, the acquisition makes us better equipped to serve our customers and improves our product development capabilities. Our Finnish innovations are also better prepared for entry to global markets. Our services are unique even on a global scale which makes us confident about their demand on foreign markets, too.
The fully automized mobile benefit solution developed by Eazybreak is globally unique because it’s very user-friendly and creates high value for every part of the employee benefits chain.
In line with our strategy to deliver personalized employee experience at work and beyond, this partnership reinforced through shareholding acquisition is enabling us to accelerate value creation for consumers, clients and merchants in the employee benefits space in Finland and beyond.Fredrik Öhrn, Vice President Russia and Nordics, Sodexo Benefits & Rewards Services
Sodexo’s global capabilities and vision are of course a golden opportunity to our company, and our customers will benefit from it the most. This acquisition ensures we can put this resource to use and continue innovative product and service development better than before.
The cooperation with Sodexo has been very fruitful especially thanks to their global views and experiences from 40 years in this business. This has been especially beneficial to our customers. This acquisition makes us better equipped for developing products and services serving our customers better than ever before.John Lindström, Managing Director, Eazybreak Oy
