Beacon Completes Sale of Application and Add-On Software Developer & Vendor
Toronto, Ontario, Canada, November 1, 2021 – Beacon is pleased to announce the completion of another successful M&A mandate with the sale of an Application and Add-on Software Developer to a strategic acquirer. Beacon acted as the exclusive sell-side M&A advisor, assisting throughout the transaction process.
Beacon was initially engaged in review and assessment of the client’s business, completing a business valuation as a first step in the process. Given Beacon’s existing relationships with technology investors and its experience in M&A, the focus from the get-go was to identify a strategic buyer with the resources to scale revenue and operations. Beacon’s team of experienced analysts then worked directly with the company’s management team to understand operations as well as prepare marketing materials and project deliverables. As part of Beacon’s outreach, its team contacted over 10,000 buyers across North America through its proprietary database, generating strong interest in the opportunity. Beacon’s team was able to secure multiple offers from qualified investors and experienced Software and IT professionals, of which a strategic buyer was identified as the best fit. Beacon was closely involved throughout deal negotiations and throughout the due diligence process.
As a result of the team’s dedication and hard work, Beacon was able to structure a deal that was in line with management’s exit plans. The transaction was finalized in late October 2021 as a share sale.
