AGC Partners Advises Liaison on Its Sale to OpenText

AGC Partners is pleased to announce that its client, Liaison, a leading provider of cloud-based business-to-business integration software, has been acquired by OpenText, a Canadian enterprise information management software provider, for $310 million on a cash-free / debt-free basis. With a team led by Fred Joseph, AGC Partners acted as sole financial advisor to Liaison.

Our company presented an interesting challenge for even the most skilled Strategic Advisor. We had a mature profitable legacy business with an exciting new product with the promise of driving exceptional organic growth. Knowing our situation was somewhat unique and complex, we carefully selected our partner for this process. The AGC team had solid subject matter expertise and their approach to our engagement was thoughtful and ultimately produced a very positive outcome for our shareholders, customers, employees and the acquiring business. Fred and his team played a key role in the timing of the process, the positioning of the business overall and in every stage leading to Closing. I would highly recommend AGC and Fred and hope to have the opportunity to work with them again in the future Bob Renner, CEO, Liaison
