GCA Advises Livingbridge on Its Investment in Giacom
Giacom’s Cloud Market offers cloud software, infrastructure and IT support services for SMBs via the IT Consultant (“ITC”) community. With over 4,000 customers, Giacom is the largest Office 365 distributor in the UK and recently placed 69th in The Sunday Times Tech Track 100, which ranks Britain’s fastest-growing technology businesses.
Livingbridge’s investment facilitates an LBO of the business by Giacom Chief Executive Mike Wardell and his team from the founder, Nick Marshall. LDC, which backed the business in 2016, is reinvesting a minority stake in the company to support Giacom’s ongoing growth strategy.
Giacom plans to build on its strong momentum by continuing to expand its network with ITCs, cross-selling more products and services across the marketplace and through strategic M&A.
