Private Equity Backed Enterprise Software Provider:
Industry Rollup Opportunity for Private Equity Firm
In 2000s, The ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning), Pricing, and Fulfillment Systems market was fragmented, and provided opportunity for consolidation across national borders. With high switching costs for ERP systems and significant recurring revenue from maintenance and support, a US Private Equity Firm saw the opportunity for international industry rollup requiring rapid acquisition and integration of multiple companies. We were engaged to execute on the strategy and the company’s first international acquisition. We assisted with an asset purchase out of a bankruptcy estate, and with restructuring the acquired business back to profitability. We guided ongoing business development efforts, negotiations with key accounts and strategic partners, and established a scalable infrastructure for an industry roll-up, which allowed the company to grow from $100 million to close to $3 billion in revenue.
