Acquisition International M&A Awards 2015
CloudOrigin is delighted to have been voted two prestigious awards at the M&A Awards, 2015:
- Best Systems IT Due Diligence Provider – UK
- Best for Post Transaction Technology Services – UK
We firmly believe this year’s awards reflect the range of our pre and post-transaction work and the quality of deals, clients and target firms we have had the privilege to assist.
We have also witnessed increased interest from trade acquirers whether expanding their offerings for example advising IT-ernity the leading Netherlands cloud, hosting and managed service provider to acquire CloudVPS the OpenStack specialist, or cross-border expansion advising Swiss FinTech provider CREALOGIX to acquire MBA Systems in UK.
In 2015 we have seen dramatic increase in range of M&A and Investment deals across EMEA in developed and developing markets, resurgence in interest in datacenter and managed hosting segment albeit with investors demanding clear business models and credible growth plans, and continued rapid global expansion of SaaS providers.
Our Three Core Due Diligence Principles
Firstly, put the business impact of technology foremost, and speak in a language that investors will understand. Secondly, build trust with the target 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.
