BDA and William Blair advise Integreon on sale to EagleTree Capital
Divested 100% to EagleTree Capital
We are pleased to announce that BDA Partners and William Blair acted as the exclusive financial advisors to Integreon and its shareholders, including NewQuest Capital Partners (NewQuest), on its sale to EagleTree Capital. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
- Global reach: This transaction involved cross-border teams working seamlessly in the Tech-Enabled Outsourced Services and Legal Managed Services sectors.
- Deep company, sector and deal expertise: This is the 20th transaction in the Legal Managed Services sector and over last four years, we have closed over 60 transactions in the Tech-Enabled Outsourced Services space. The team’s extensive knowledge and experience in the Legal and Tech Enabled Outsourced Services space, strong relationships with likely strategic and financial buyers, and longstanding knowledge of Integreon helped to thoughtfully articulate the company’s value proposition, multi-pronged growth strategy, and mitigants to sector risks, generating strong buyer interest and optimizing value.
- Process and execution excellence: The transaction team was integrally involved throughout each step of a process that required a high degree of flexibility to adapt to macroeconomic, buyer-related, and company-specific dynamics. The team worked closely with both Integreon management and NewQuest throughout the marketing and diligence process, and effectively communicated the nuanced trends of a complex process and data driven business.
- Longstanding relationship and guidance: The transaction team has built a strong and trusted relationship with NewQuest and Integreon over many years and has maintained an ongoing strategic dialogue through a period of transformation of this asset. This is the fourth deal with NewQuest.
