TECH M&A AND FINANCING
Shurman is a Value-Driven Tech M&A and Financing firm. We serve ambitious digital technology and tech-enabled service businesses on sell-side, buy-side, and growth financing.
Shurman's dealmaking team has a combined track-record with over 80 transactions in platform technology, SaaS, and tech-enabled services. The deals we have conducted span a wide variety of tech horizontals and market verticals.
Our client list includes high potential growth companies such as Global Collect, Albelli, WoodWing, Yourhosting, Mijndomein, UnifiedPost, Dimebox, and many others. We worked with corporates such as PostNL, KPN, BMW, TNT, Athlon, and Philips. Besides, we concluded transactions with investors such as Endeit, Prime Technology Ventures, Gilde, NPM Capital, Main Capital, Strikwerda Investments, Inkef, and NIBC.
THE NEXT STEP
Shurman facilitates the next step in your business ambitions through mergers, acquisitions, exits, and financing. We strike a delicate balance in facilitating your strategic, financial, and personal ambitions.
At Shurman, we follow a value-driven mindset, a multi-disciplinary skillset, and a programmatic toolset—finding, unlocking, and realizing value. Our guiding principle for Tech M&A and Financing is that a company's actual value is not just in the numbers. We see conventional EBITDA-boosting as outdated.
A transaction is only successful when the stakeholders' ambitions are fulfilled. Consequently, the pre-deal, deal and post-deal process must focus on finding, unlocking, and realizing value.
PREDICTABLE, PURPOSEFUL, AND PAYING-OFF
At Shurman, we provide pre-deal, deal, and post-deal support programs. With our fresh approach, we make tech M&A and financing predictable, purposeful, and paying-off—for all parties involved.
Shurman's multi-disciplinary team, consisting of tech industry seniors, collaborates in a global network of partners, including private equity firms, banks, growth capital providers, alternative financing funds, strategic buyers, industry analysts, and other deal-support specialists.
The firm headquarters is in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
" Shurman's role in the PE deal between Rapid Circle and Mentha Capital (2020) is best defined by one word—"TRUST." We appreciate their steady, multi-disciplinary approach to facilitating a successful transaction: articulating our value, balancing different stakeholder interests, and remaining involved post-transaction. This senior team is a joy to work with."
Harold Punter, CEO at Rapid Circle
"I worked with many corporate finance firms in the past, but the Shurman team is in a league on its own. Above all, Shurman is different because of its out-of-the-box approach, a creative vision on positioning, and a sharp eye for the company's opportunities. Moreover, they are better equipped than others in aligning all stakeholders' interests while maintaining the human dimension and outperform expectations."
Chris Baelemans, CEO at Welten Group
"Shurman facilitated us in the successful transaction between WoodWing and Main Capital (2020). They supported the founders with a successful exit and the management team with finding a trustworthy PE partner. I'm particularly appreciative of Erik and Nathan's personal and authentic approach during the process. I would recommend them to anyone looking for facilitating the next step in their growth ambitions."
