Silverpeak, the technology investment bank, acted as the exclusive financial advisor to MSite on its acquisition by the Infobric Group
Silverpeak, the technology investment bank, acted as the exclusive financial advisor to MSite, the Liverpool-based provider of workforce management SaaS and solutions, on its acquisition by the Infobric Group (a portfolio company of Summa Equity). This acquisition unites the domestic market leadership of MSite and Infobric, in the UK and the Nordic region respectively, to create a European digital leader serving the construction sector.
MSite is a leading technology company in workforce management at construction sites. MSite’s platform is actively deployed by Tier 1 contractors such as Balfour Beatty, BAM, Morgan Sindall and Vinci Construction, as well as on the London 2012 Olympic Park. It is estimated that 40% of the UK’s construction workforce is enrolled on MSite’s platform today.
MSite will now become part of the Infobric Group. This acquisition is Infobric’s first outside the Nordic region and an important part of its international growth. MSite's UK market-leading position lays the foundation for knowledge transfer that will strengthen Infobric’s offering for its entire customer base.
Silverpeak worked with MSite and its shareholders as their exclusive adviser to explore their options. Upon identifying the right time to launch the process, the Silverpeak team worked to a tight timetable to prepare the process, identify and pre-qualify potential buyers, negotiate the transaction and manage the process through to final completion, all within 4 months.
Neil Norman, Founder and CEO of MSite said: “To an entrepreneur, first exposure to the world of corporate finance advisors is daunting and you naturally question the value of their service. Frankly speaking, we could not have done this without the expertise and hard work of the Silverpeak team. At first, they challenged us to get ready for what was to come, then they expertly took the transaction across the line. If we do another deal, it will be with Pietro and the Silverpeak team.”
Pietro Strada, the Managing Partner at Silverpeak leading the process, added: “We are delighted to have advised MSite on this transformative transaction in the construction technology sector. Neil and his team have built a market-leading company centered around Msite’s SaaS platform, which has been validated by many of the most demanding and innovative UK construction companies. We thank MSite’s shareholders for their trust in Silverpeak and are proud to have delivered a great outcome for all.”
