Inventive IT

Manchester-based Inventive IT provides ecommerce parking systems to airports worldwide. In 2013 The Strategy Exchange partnered with the owner-management team to support them as they grew from 3 to 16 airports in just 18 months. In 2014 Australian group Advam approached and ultimately acquired Inventive, delivering a very successful exit for the shareholders. The Strategy Exchange led the sale transaction.

TSE added value to the business that went far beyond the sale process. Their in-depth knowledge from a buyer-side perspective delivered value that greatly simplified the process and helped to increase our valuation. Throughout the sale their advice was invaluable. Following sale completion, I continued to rely on TSE’s assistance through the earn out period. I would not hesitate to work with TSE in future – however, next time I would bring them into the process much earlier.
