Deal completed for Arowana to acquire DDLS

ICT learning provider DDLS Australia has been acquired by Arowana International, an ASX-listed operator of small and medium-sized enterprises and specialist asset manager.

The deal sees DDLS now form part of Arowana’s emerging education platform, EdventureCo, established this year to lead the execution of Arowana’s education strategy.

“I am delighted to announce that DDLS has become part of the EdventureCo and Arowana family. With over 25 years in the Australian market and a successful and award-winning track record of delivering innovative learning solutions, DDLS is well positioned to scale up and reach more ICT professionals and their organisations,“ said Sean Steele, chief executive of EdventureCo.

Steele said under the deal, DDLS would continue to build innovative and dynamic solutions that meet the learning and development needs of both public and private sector organisations.

DDLS was founded in 1987 and claims delivery of training to more than 11,000 trainees per year from six nation-wide campuses with 45 fully-equipped classrooms and cutting-edge telepresence solutions.
