Desjardins Capital’s Investment in Orthogone Technologies

BCF acted on behalf of Desjardins Capital in this alliance with Orthogone Technologies.

Orthogone Technologies, a Canadian leader in the development of highly specialized engineering solutions, has recently welcomed Desjardins Capital as a strategic partner and minority shareholder of the company.

Desjardins Capital’s support will enable the company to carry out its ambitious international development plan, which will result in an expected annual growth of 50% over the next few years. This financing will also allow Orthogone Technologies to create 100 new specialized jobs in Québec over three years and to deploy its sales and marketing activities in North America. The company will thus be able to continue serving large original equipment manufacturers with integrated digital technology offerings.

Orthogone Technologies offers highly specialized engineering solutions focused on the design of innovative products requiring in-depth knowledge of software development, embedded systems, programmable logic gate arrays and systems-on-chip for its numerous Québec and world-class customers. The company is a valuable ally for its customers to multiply their technology capabilities and accelerate their product commercialization based on a broad ecosystem of technical and distribution partners, as well as leading chip manufacturers to support innovation.
