GCA Altium advises Bregal Unternehmerkapital on the acquisition of Iptor Supply Chain Systems
GCA Altium acted as exclusive financial advisor to Bregal Unternehmerkapital on its acquisition of Iptor, a leader in distribution and supply chain management, planning and logistics software and services.
Headquartered in Stockholm, Sweden, Iptor helps distribution-focused organizations solve their most complex order management and fulfilment challenges within fast-moving, multi-channel and global supply chains, turning them into growth opportunities. Iptor has been transformed over the past three years under the leadership of CEO Jayne Archbold and CMO Christopher Catterfeld. The re-branding and re-positioning of the business from IBS to Iptor has delivered exceptional progress, with the product portfolio having been transformed through the successful launch of the aperīo platform.
The investment by Bregal Unternehmerkapital allows Iptor to embark on a ramped-up strategic expansion programme, focusing on building out its leading position in the Technical Wholesale, Pharma and Publishing sectors as well as increasing its geographical footprint and pursuing acquisitions.
Sascha Pfeiffer who heads GCA Altium’s software M&A practice commented: “In terms of software M&A activity, 2020 starts as busy as 2019 has finished. We are delighted to have advised our repeat client Bregal Unternehmerkapital on his first software transaction in the Nordics.”
