Arma Partners advises WebPros, a leading provider of web hosting automation software, on its sale to CVC
Arma Partners is pleased to announce that it has acted as exclusive financial advisor to WebPros, a portfolio company of Oakley Capital, on its sale to CVC. Oakley Capital and other existing shareholders will invest alongside CVC as minority partners to benefit from long-term growth opportunities and new product developments. The transaction is subject to customary regulatory approvals.
Oakley Capital originally invested in WebPros in 2017 and subsequently completed six acquisitions to create a product portfolio that addresses the full end-to-end customer lifecycle for shared hosting providers. WebPros now employs over 450 people across four continents and supports customers across the globe.
CVC brings a complementary skillset and deep relevant expertise to support the strategic vision of the business to build the leading global SaaS hosting platform for server management.
The transaction underscores Arma Partners’ consistent track record of successfully executing landmark transactions on behalf of leading Private Equity investors, having advised on five £1bn+ deals in the last two years, including acting for TA Associates on the recapitalisation of The Access Group, Hg on the recapitalisation of IRIS, EQT on the acquisition of SUSE and General Atlantic on the partial realisation of its holding in Argus Media.
