DUE DILIGENCE HELPS LEAD CLOUDABILITY TO SUCCESSFUL ACQUISITION BY APPTIO AND VISTA EQUITY PARTNERS
Cloudability recently announced that it will be acquired by Apptio, owned by Vista Equity Partners. Cloudability is the market leader in multi-cloud financial management and FinOps, serving hundreds of customers around the globe.
Due diligence is a key component of every successful private equity transaction. Cloudability recognized the importance of delivering analysis to help with this process and hired SGC Ventures to complete a Market Opportunity Analysis for investor prep.
Sara Conte did excellent work pulling together our due diligence and market opportunity analysis in advance of our acquisition." - Mat Ellis, CEO, Cloudability
The engagement delivered on the following due diligence objectives:
The analysis helped to present data private equity investors would be seeking in an acquisition and to more quickly determine fit with Apptio and Vista Equity Partners.
Our ability to effectively communicate the Cloudability value proposition to investors was much magnified by the market opportunity assessment and due diligence work that Sara Conte completed. Her work was focused, precise, insightful, and more importantly, defensible. Her background, credibility, and expertise was also a huge add in the process. We very much enjoyed working with Sara and so thankful we engaged her." - Caroline Carr, CFO, Cloudability
