Worksmart acquired by Davies
Silverpeak unlocked sources of hidden value and leveraging inbound interest to deliver optimal outcomes for all shareholders
About our client
A leading supplier of regulatory technology (“regtech”) for people and process management, enabling organisations to track and manage complex regulatory processes.
Worksmart has a plethora of blue-chip clients across banking, insurance and private investment. They have also been amongst the world’s most innovative regtech companies, making the RegTech100 global directory for two years running.
Why they chose us
The shareholders of Worksmart engaged Silverpeak due to its relationships with over 50 regtech buyers, many of which have indicated their strong appetite to continue investing in the regtech space.
How we added value
Silverpeak worked with the management team to uncover every source of value and refine the equity story before identifying the most relevant global buyers that would benefit from this regtech business.
After engaging in a thorough preparation phase, the Silverpeak team worked to a tight timetable to quickly qualify and manage the interested parties, negotiate the transaction and manage the process through to completion with the preferred party.
The successful outcome
A very competitive process with strategic buyers from Europe and the USA, resulting in a sale to BC Partners’ portfolio company Davies in under 6 months.
