Pava Partners advised valantic (“valantic”) on a comprehensive expansion of its financing structure as exclusive Debt Advisor. The existing financing was increased by an additional financing line with a significant volume. The additional acquisition line is intended to ensure the continued successful growth of valantic and enables the targeted expansion of the service offering in the area of digital solutions, consulting and software through further mergers/acquisitions in DACH, Benelux and the Nordics. The transaction was completed at the beginning of August 2023.
Founded in 2012, valantic is an internationally successful technology and consulting company that has been able to build an impressive brand through its dynamic growth and is considered one of the leading companies for digital consulting and software solutions in Europe. A key success factor of the growth strategy is the combination of organic growth and targeted, strategic mergers/acquisitions. Since 2019, more than 20 mergers have been organized and seamlessly integrated into the existing organization by the M&A and PMI teams. This integrative approach not only allows valantic to leverage synergies in a targeted manner, but also positions it as a preferred option for entrepreneurs who want to be part of a larger organization in the future.
The financing requirements of the growth course to date have been met by continuously expanding the commitment of existing financing partners. In view of the management team’s further short- to medium-term growth ambitions, additional financing capacity should now be created. In this context, Pava Partners was mandated as exclusive financing advisor to expand the financing structure accordingly in a competitive process. The new funding package ensures the ability to finance other successful valantic mergers for years to come.
