Why they chose us
Camplify engaged Silverpeak due to its true understanding of P2P marketplaces, their business models and value drivers.
Silverpeak’s proven reach with some of the most relevant targets and their investors across Europe was another factor.
Camplify also recognised Silverpeak’s expertise in process management and buy-side M&A execution.
How we added value
Silverpeak supported Camplify on every aspects of the M&A strategy: deal origination and execution, including sourcing, vetting, valuation, due diligence, liaising with sellers, and negotiation of acquisitions.
Following comprehensive market research, Silverpeak worked with the client to pre-qualify, prioritise and approach acquisition targets.
The target was valued on a GMV multiple to substantiate Camplify’s focus on building scale.
The successful outcome
Silverpeak finalised a first transaction with Camplify on the strategic acquisition of PaulCamper and continues to work closely with the board as its dedicated financial adviser to support its inorganic expansion across Europe.
