Acquisition International M&A Awards 2016
CloudOrigin is honoured to have been voted:
- Best for Technology Due Diligence – UK
Our Vendor and Buyside Technology and Operational Due Diligence work grew once again in size and complexity around the globe, having now assessed deals worth over $17 Billion in enterprise value.
Exciting but turbulent year
While 2016 has brought a high level of uncertainty to financial markets and the UK tech sector since the Brexit Referendum result which disrupted many cross-border deals, we have seen continued interest from UK based funds investing in growth firms, global buyout specialists considering major investments and consolidation plays, and early stage Venture Capitalists identifying innovative startups in these shores.
Across Europe and USA we also participated in the rise of big data and Artificial Intelligence related investments, especially across Health, Logistics and MADTech (“Marketing and Advertising”) sectors.
Our Three Core Advisory Principles
Firstly, put the business impact of technology foremost, and speak in a language that investors will understand. Secondly, build trust with the client to prove that we really understand the innovation and service delivery processes at the heart of their firm and the challenges they will encounter at each stage of evolution. Thirdly, give pragmatic actionable advice rather than simply flagging issues.
