PORTLAND,OREGON, UNITED STATES, July 13, 2021 / -- Alkali Partners, an independent investment bank that provides merger and acquisition and capital raising advisory services to high-growth founder-led technology companies, has concluded five transactions in the first half of 2021 and has achieved more than 100% year-over-year growth in the trailing twelve months ending this June.

The majority of Alkali Partners’ growth over the past twelve months can be attributed to deals in enterprise software, with significant activity in transportation and infrastructure planning, healthcare, field service, specialty ERP and non-profit software sectors. These transactions include Exscribe’s acquisition by Modernizing Medicine, INRO’s acquisition by Bentley, ServicePro’s acquisition by ServiceTitan, and Kindful’s acquisition by Bloomerang.

Alkali Partners was established in 2018 to help the founders of high-growth technology companies achieve better outcomes when they sell or raise capital. Drawing on their deep industry expertise and extensive buy- and sell-side experience, Alkali Partners professionals combine a flexible process-oriented negotiation framework specifically designed to generate competition among a broad network of strategic and financial buyers. This competition results in more options for founders and higher valuations.

“Many entrepreneurs don’t know how to find the right buyers, how those buyers will value their business, nor how to negotiate terms or close a deal,” said Shane Hubbell, Alkali Partners founder and managing director. “Buyers usually have more resources, more information and more negotiating leverage, which means entrepreneurs too often end up leaving money on the table. We shift the negotiating leverage into the hands of entrepreneurs.”

The Alkali Partners leadership team has a proven track record of success, with more than 40 years of collective experience and650-plus deals totaling $107 billion in transaction value completed.

“We help the founders tell a broader story beyond a company’s numbers to capture the valuations they deserve,” said Chris Skubic, Alkali Partners managing director. “Our growth to date speaks to the effectiveness of an approach that communicates the strategic position and future value of each business.”
