TORONTO, July 30, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Tequity, an M&A advisory firm with an exclusive focus on global enterprise B2B Cloud, SaaS, and IT companies, acted as the exclusive financial advisor to Bubblebox Holdings, a Salesforce consulting partner, in their acquisition by VntCap Technologies, the parent company of Allant Group, a nationally recognized data-driven marketing firm.
On his experience working with Tequity, Paul Gordon, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Bubblebox says "Tequity are deal makers. They allowed us to continue to run our business while they did the heavy lifting in ensuring questions were answered throughout the process. We had the pleasure of working with Alex and Anish. Both are professional to the letter. They understand the importance of maintaining a good relationship throughout the process and work through any challenges that inevitably arise. We cannot thank them enough for their timely work and patience."
Tracey Gordon, Co-Founder and Chief Operations Officer added "Undertaking a merger or acquisition, whilst continuing to run a business (especially during a pandemic), should never be underestimated. Having the Tequity team manage the process allowed us to continue to focus on growing our business. Alex and Anish have a wealth of experience and are a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend them. Paul and I are excited to grow the Bubblebox practice as part of Allant Group."
