SSW Pragmatic Solutions has advised Polish private equity firm Spire Capital Partners on the acquisition of a controlling stake in Thulium.
Thulium is a Krakow-based company offering contact center software for customer service and sales departments. Spire Capital specializes in lower mid-cap buy-outs of software, e-commerce, and tech-enabled services companies, with investments in Poland and the CEE region.
The Thulium founders "remained in the company as minority shareholders. The deal was financed with the capital coming from Polish and international institutional and private investors and Spire’s team," SCP stated. "The ambition of the company's founders and the SCP investment team is to further develop the company and make it a regional leader in customer contact support for companies operating both in the online and omnichannel model."
"In the previous year, Thulium recorded over PLN 7 million in revenues, continuing the annual growth at the level of approximately 30%," SCP Partner Krzysztof Konopinski commented. "That proves the quality of the company's solution. We are actively looking for M&A targets to expand Thulium’s product portfolio, including chatbots and voice bots. At the same time, we are preparing for international expansion."
"We have been looking for a partner with whom we will be able to take Thulium to the next level of its development," Thulium CEO Marek Bartnikowski added. "We were convinced by the extensive experience of SCP’s investment team in the digital economy, as well as a partnership approach. We quickly built a mutual understanding that turned into trust – crucial for such large business ventures. I believe that together we create the best possible mix for the further dynamic development of Thulium."
The SSW team was led by Partner Mateusz Rogozinski and included Counsel Anna Sekowska and Senior Associate Kacper Jedrzejak.
