Houlihan Lokey Advises Atlas Knowledge

Mintra Group is a global partner in HR management, competence, and training for companies within oil and gas, maritime, construction, and renewables. This add-on further enhances Mintra's position as a leading proprietary e-learning platform provider to oil and gas companies next to its HR solutions around competency management, crew rotation planning, and payroll. In addition to new customers and geographies, the merger with Atlas provides access to new industry verticals.

“This transaction allows us to even more effectively leverage our extensive reseller and distribution network,” said Kevin Short, CEO, Atlas Knowledge. “We are confident that Riverside's expertise and Mintra's operations will help us expand our presence with partners worldwide and broaden our scope for further revenue generation.”
