Liberty advises the management team of Xceptor on the acquisition by Astorg

Liberty is pleased to announce that they have advised the management team of Xceptor, a global leader in the end-to-end, no-code process automation market, on its agreement with Astorg to acquire the business from CBPE Capital LLP.

Founded in 2003 and headquartered in the UK, Xceptor is a fast-growing software business operating within the high growth intelligent data automation space, combining a highly scalable, next generation technology platform with deep financial sector domain expertise. The Company employs 160 people across five global offices, and serves a diversified global blue-chip base of banking, financial services, and insurance customers, who utilise the Xceptor no-code platform to re-engineer and automate an unparalleled breadth of end-to-end processes.

Astorg’s investment, alongside a material reinvestment by the current management team, will enable the Company to continue to invest in product innovation and accelerate on their strong historical 35% annual growth, while further building out their broad international presence and leading customer base.

Liberty advised the management team led by Andrew Kouloumbrides (CEO), Dan Reid (CTO) and Sharon Cooper (CFO).  The transaction involved very significant reinvestment by the management and employees of Xceptor on attractive  terms.

The Liberty team provided great advice to us throughout the process and were incredibly responsive to deliver an agreed position within an intense, competitive and fast moving process. We would highly recommend them.
