AGC Partners Advises LeanKit on its Sale to Planview
AGC is pleased to announce that its client, LeanKit, a portfolio company of Insight Venture Partners and the leading enterprise Kanban tool, helping organizations visualize work, optimize processes, and deliver value faster, today announced that it has been acquired by Planview, a portfolio company of Thoma Bravo. The acquisition of LeanKit provides Planview with a firm foothold in Lean and Agile. LeanKit’s “Enterprise Kanban for Engineers” solution advances Planview’s work and resource management (WRM) vision of supporting all the ways organizations work, ensuring they can plan and scale more effectively to deliver customer value faster. With a team led by Ben Howe, AGC Partners acted as sole financial advisor to LeanKit.
The AGC team distinguished itself from the beginning with their determination and drive. AGC dove deep into the Company's positioning and financial metrics to bring out LeanKit's true value. They were able to successfully leverage their strong relationships with top buyers and their deep knowledge of our market which resulted in multiple offers on attractive terms. Throughout the process, AGC effectively and confidently represented LeanKit and our interests. Their leadership and commitment enabled us to close on favorable terms and an accelerated timeline. I highly recommend AGC as a trusted financial advisor and look forward to working with Ben, Sean and the entire AGC team again.
