THE NEXT STEP
Shurman facilitates the next step in your business ambitions through M&A and growth financing transactions. We strike a delicate balance in facilitating your personal, strategic, and financial ambitions.
At Shurman, we follow a value-driven mindset, a multidisciplinary skillset, and a programmatic toolset to find, unlock, and realize 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 We see conventional EBITDA-boosting as outdated.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' and shareholders' ambitions are met. Therefore, the pre-transaction, transaction, and post-transaction processes must focus on finding, unlocking, and realizing value.
PREDICTABLE, PURPOSEFUL, AND PAYING-OFF
At Shurman, we provide pre-transaction, transaction, and post-transaction support programs. With our fresh approach, we make tech M&A and financing predictable, purposeful, and profitable for all parties involved.
Shurman's multidisciplinary team, consisting of tech industry veterans, collaborates with 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 is headquartered 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."
Ross Paterson, CEO at WoodWing
"The management team of the new combination between Credion and Fundion is very pleased with Shurman's multifaceted support. The collaboration included facilitating the merger and supporting the building of the fundamentals for the joint companies' business plan. Lastly, selecting a specialized fintech investor to help fulfil the joint team's EU ambitions. We thank Erik, Mark and Nathan for their dedication and for bringing Finch Capital on board as our growth partner (2022)."
