Baker Tilly GDA: corporate finance company with expertise in the technology sector

The image, which refers to the ranking obtained from the TTR source, shows the 3 consultancies that have closed the most in Spain in 2020 in the technology sector.

Specifically, our firm closed a total of 4 acquisitions during 2020, despite the complicated time we are going through due to the covid-19.

Among the deals we have closed in recent years are these two operations, which are listed below.

Two of our most outstanding deals :

Accel-KKR acquires Endalia

Accel-KKR - Wikipedia

As we discussed in one of our previous posts, the most recent transaction on which the Baker Tilly Corporate Finance team advised was the acquisition of Endalia by Accel-KKR

On this occasion, Baker Tilly has advised the acquirer in what has been its first investment in Spain in a sector we are already familiar with: human capital management and salary software.

Given the fragmentation of the human capital management and payroll landscape in Spain, Accel-KKR, is pursuing complementary M&A and consolidation targets primarily in Spain.  Potential fits include consolidation in the human capital management space, payroll oriented software and services and learning management software for employee training.

Provindence acquires Imaweb

Providence Capital – Independent financial and strategic advise

In 2019, Baker Tilly agreed to sell Imaweb, a software company focused on the automotive dealer market, to Providence, the world's largest industry-focused private equity firm with approximately $40 billion of AUM (assets under management) and a primary focus on education, communications, media and information technology.. 

In the transaction Baker Tilly advised the selling party's shareholders.

The two successful deals mentioned in this post, as well as our track record, are a reflection of the great expertise that Baker Tilly Corporate Finance has in the technology sector. Our current position is another step towards achieving our mission: to become the leading European mid-market reference.

Technology Data Analytics
for M&A
"Advanced data anlytics is a weapon". Intelfin is an artificial intelligence tool we use for investing and creating value in SMEs through competitive analytics and the enterprise environment.

IntelFin consists of a cognitive system, which, through the application of advanced analytical technologies, facilitates the automation of investment and financing decisions in the field of non-listed companies and especially SMEs in high-growth sectors.

The information related to these companies is characterized by their lack of transparency and heterogeneity; thus, it is necessary to develop an advanced analysis which is as much predictive as prescriptive and is developed in a natural language custom, suitable to obtain greater clarity and knowledge of the investment scope.

The IntelFin system focuses especially on analyzing the variables that define and influence the competitive environment of a sector and the positioning of a company, analyzing their influence on future value creation. Therefore, IntelFin supports strategic decision-making to senior management by resolving questions such as:

¿What are my competitors' priorities, strategies and expansion plans? Who's my competition? Which competitor is most likely to grow at a higher rate?
Which areas of activity/business models will receive the most investment? Which sectors are most attractive to investors?
Which companies are going to experience the most growth in the near future? Which companies are most likely to receive investment or be acquired?
Training Methodology
We have developed training programs in an innovative set-up which guarantees our teams the acquisition of technical competences both in the field of corporate finance and in the field of psychology, that is much needed when it comes to negotiation processes.

We have a culture of continuous improvement of our processes, closely related to the use of information systems that allow the enhancement of internal communication between our teams, as well as external communication with our customers. Hence, we extend best practices identified internally in an efficient and rapid manner among our members.
