The Deal

OpenText acquired Global 360’s competitor Metastorm earlier in the year, and therefore had a predisposed position on valuation. Through the Lincoln team’s ability to mediate between the two parties, keeping the lines of communication open, Global 360 was ultimately sold for a revenue multiple that reflected a more than 25% increase over the price of the earlier purchased competitor.

Our Perspective

“We worked together with Global 360 for over a year reintroducing the company to all of the potential acquirers, with a focus on highlighting its transition away from legacy document management software and growing leadership in the business process management and dynamic case management space,” noted Clark Spurrier, Managing Director at Lincoln. “I truly enjoyed helping this best-in-class late-stage private software vendor, backed by elite investors, articulate its unique value proposition to strategic buyers who had not tracked the company’s innovation.”
