Investcorp Acquires KSM Consulting

February 22, 2021 | John Melendez

Investcorp, a global provider and manager of alternative investment products, today announced that one of its affiliates has acquired a majority ownership position in KSM Consulting, a consulting firm specializing in data analytics, technology and digital transformation, from Renovus Capital Partners, which will continue to maintain a minority stake in KSMC.

KSMC is led by CEO Mark Caswell and president John Roach, who will continue to lead the firm through this time. Investcorp’s partnership with KSMC will focus on continuing the Firm’s organic growth, expanding geographically across the United States and broadening KSMC’s service offerings into strategic adjacencies.

“The past year highlighted the importance of embracing technology for all organizations, regardless of size, sector or industry,” said Steve Miller, managing director and head of knowledge and professional services, private equity, North America at Investcorp. “We believe that KSM Consulting is well-positioned for growth as the need for organizations to adopt and realize value from digital solutions will continue to generate demand for the Firm’s mission-critical services. In addition to the industry’s attractive secular tailwinds, KSMC’s people, values and culture set the Firm apart in a highly fragmented market. We have a successful history of partnering with professional services and tech-enabled businesses and we look forward to supporting Mark and John as they continue growing KSMC.”

Mark Caswell, CEO of KSMC stated, “We believe Investcorp’s deep understanding of technology and the professional services industry makes it an ideal partner for KSMC’s next phase of growth. Investcorp’s resources and expertise will enable us to continue expanding the reach of our difference-making work and will position us for accelerated growth as we continue to prioritize providing service excellence and driving positive outcomes to our clients. We are excited by the long-term benefits this partnership will unlock for our team, clients and communities.”

TSG and Clearent Merge to Form Xplor

February 27, 2021 | John Melendez

Clearent, a full-service, integrated payment services provider based in the United States and Transaction Services Group, a global provider of business management software and integrated payments for the subscription economy, have entered into a definitive merger agreement. TSG and Clearent, both portfolio companies of Advent International, a private equity firms and a investor in payments technology, are combining to create a global platform designed to integrate software, payments, and commerce-enabling services for specific vertical markets. The new company will be called Xplor.

Xplor will be headquartered in the United States in Atlanta, GA. Clearent CEO Pamela Joseph will serve as executive chair of the new company and TSG CEO Floris de Kort will serve as group CEO.

“This is a highly complementary combination of applications and platforms that are well positioned to empower businesses that operate in ‘everyday life’ verticals, which are growing rapidly because they are so important to consumers around the world,” said de Kort. “This transaction will enable us to better leverage the advantages of our global breadth with our hyper-local expertise. We will invest in and commercialize our product innovations more effectively, such as our suite of mobile apps, so that we can continue to help our clients eliminate friction and deliver better experiences to their consumers and small businesses.”

“Our cloud-based, technology platform allows clients and partners to ‘plug and play‘ easily into our suite of software and payments solutions, speeding their time to market and helping them navigate the operational pain points that too often hold businesses back,” said Joseph. “With intimate knowledge of building companies from the ground up, we have a passion for offering a personal and high-quality customer service approach that is lacking in the market today.”

Macquarie Capital served as financial advisors to TSG on the transaction. Citi served as financial advisors to Clearent. Proton Partners served as strategic advisor to Advent International and Xplor, and Goldman Sachs and UBS advised on the financing of the transaction.
