Liberty advises the management team of ASK4 on its acquisition by GI Partners

Liberty is delighted to announce that they have advised the management team of ASK4, Europe's leading provider of critical in-building Internet connectivity to the multi-tenant real estate sector, on its acquisition by GI Partners, a leading investor in critical data infrastructure businesses.

The transaction is subject to regulatory approval.

Based in Sheffield, U.K., ASK4 provides managed Internet, IT and IoT services across 12 European countries supporting over 320,000 customers. With the support of its current investment partners, Bowmark Capital, ASK4 has solidified its leading position in its core markets and strategically expanded into new segments.

Liberty were appointed by the management team, led by Andrew Dutton, to advise on their terms in the transaction.

Liberty, via Simon Hill and his team, has been an invaluable resource. The team’s support from modelling to term sheet construction and negotiation were invaluable. As were the deal benchmarks which enable Management to establish a market competitive deal with our new investors. We’ve felt fully supported every step of the way.

Andrew Dutton

It has been a pleasure working with Andrew, Rich and the ASK4 team and we wish them every success as they continue their growth plans with the support and expertise of specialist investor GI Partners alongside them.
