WE SPEAK YOUR LANGUAGE

It’s not that we know English, French, Polish or other languages. Thanks to our experience in M&A transactions and running software and technology business, we understand what you tell us.

We understand your concerns,  we understand your goals, we will not be learning during the transaction about what is important in the SH business or what is crucial to secure a good investment in a Software House. So we will understand you, regardless of whether you are a founder looking for an investor or an investor looking for targets.

We are here to help you…

…find the RIGHT investor, prepare for the transaction, execute it at optimal parameters and ensure you are protected after the transaction.

FINDING A RIGHT INVESTOR

We will find a right investor for you, depending on how much control you are ready to share, whether you are willing to build something „bigger” together with the investor and how long you are willing to stay in the company following introduction of an investor.

PRE-TRANSACTION SUPPORT

We will evaluate how prepared you are to invite an investor and achieve your goals of the process. We will create and help you execute a plan for 6-12-18 months (depending on how prepared you are) to help you maximize the output of the transaction.

TRANSACTION ADVISORY

We will prepare all necessary documentation (teaser, information memorandum etc.). We will negotiate on your behalf.  We will help you find additional resources necessary for the transaction, such as experienced lawyers to draft the PSPA/SPA.

POST-TRANSACTION SUPPORT

We will help you avoid issues post-transaction, including your obligations under „representations and warranties” section of the share purchase agreement (SPA).

INVESTOR

We WILL find the RIGHT targets. Full stop. 

With our expertise and knowledge of the market, rest assured we will find the target based on your criteria. Once we do it, we can offer you transaction-related support and post-transaction services to maximize your output from the investment.

TARGET SEARCH

Based on your criteria we will scan the market and find the RIGHT targets. We will not waste your and our time on presenting you anything we have „in store”. If we don’t believe a target is right for your needs, you will never hear about it. 

POST-ACQ MANAGEMENT

Following the transaction we can take interim management roles in the acquired targets, act as supervisory board members or represent you in any other way that will help you secure your investment.

TRANSACTION SUPPORT

As experienced professionals in the SH market in Poland we know what to look at in terms of value and how to immediately spot weaknesses, skeletons in the closet and creative pre-transaction accounting.

FURTHER ACQUISITIONS

If your plan is to expand by executing multiple acquisitions, we will find further targets, help you close the deals and take responsibility for seamless merging of the acquisitions.
