Speaking about the acquisition, Datasite CEO, Rusty Wiley, stated:
“CapVest has a history of transforming the size and scale of its portfolio companies so these companies can realize their full potential. With their backing we’re ready for our next phase of growth, which will include the introduction of new and innovative technologies to make transactions faster, simpler, and more secure, enabling our customers to achieve better deal outcomes.”
Christopher Campbell, Partner of CapVest, added:
“We’re looking forward to helping them go far beyond virtual data rooms to automate the many complex processes involved in managing the M&A lifecycle, including addressing dealmaker needs that can be met through product development, partnership or acquisition, enabled by Datasite’s modular API-based technology platform.”
