The corporate team at Geldards have successfully advised Agilitas IT Solutions Limited and investment partner NVM Private Equity on the sale of the private equity firms stake to international PE investor Perwyn.
Originally founded in 1990, Nottingham-based Agilitas has grown significantly to become a leading provider of global tech solutions for IT channel partners including resellers, managed service providers, system integrators, vendors and distributors. The firms growth has seen them expand operations to over 60 countries throughout the world.
The team at Geldards, led by Partner and Head of Corporate, Debra Martin, have enjoyed a long and successful relationship with Agilitas and advised the management team on the 2014 MBO which saw NVM invest £6.4m to support future growth.
Commenting on the deal, Debra said:
“We are delighted to have been able to advise the management team at Agilitas and NVM on the next stage of their exciting growth. The 2014 management buyout and resultant NVM investment has led to an incredibly successful period for the firm and created a significant amount of interest in the PE market.
Agilitas and its advisers engaged with a number of interested organisations to identify the right investment partner who could support Agilitas by accelerating their ambitious growth plans. Having identified Perwyn as their partner of choice, our challenge was to complete the transaction as quickly and effectively as possible in these challenging times."
