Why they chose us
Silverpeak had previously led a successful €10m fundraise based on an ambitious long term strategic growth plan, which we developed.
This made us ideal partners to deliver the right acquirers on the best possible terms.
Access to key strategic acquirers across the globe was also important.
How we added value
When Sentryo were unexpectedly approached by a strategic acquirer, Silverpeak leveraged its connections and fuller understanding of the value proposition to map the marketplace and contact those it identified as potential acquirers.
Silverpeak’s comprehensive articulation of the value within the business was key in convincing shareholders of the strength of the negotiating position and, ultimately, of closing the deal.
The successful outcome
Not only was an excellent price achieved, the deal was made with the ideal strategic partner, on excellent terms, in what was very much a acquirer’s market.
