“The result was an acquisition by a perfect-fit acquirer. Popular opinion has it that corporate finance advisers are only motivated to close the deal. Cobalt were only interested in closing the right deal. What a difference one word makes.”

Jeff Ward, TriSystems

Optimum exits
for technology companies

Cobalt advise management and shareholders of public and private mid-market technology companies on their full or partial sale to financial and strategic buyers around the world, and larger fundraisings.

We’ve been advising on Technology M&A and larger fundraisings for 18 years from our London base and work closely with our partners in Silicon Valley and Germany. Through our International M&A network, Globalscope, we also have insight and feet on the ground when required in 38 countries around the world.

Our approach is hands-on and personal. We are committed to finding the optimum solution for your business using our deep domain expertise and global knowledge of buyers, and will work closely with you until completion to ensure that we do.

Unrivalled performance – since 1999, all transactions reaching Heads of Terms have been completed, with one exception. Of those, all transactions have closed at or above the price in the Heads of Terms, with one exception. This highly differentiated record is because of our approach.
