GCA Advises Unily on Its Growth Investment

GCA is pleased to announce we advised Unily, a leading SaaS provider of digital workplaces and digital experience platforms, on its growth investment from Silversmith Capital Partners and Farview Equity Partners. Following the investment, Silversmith and Farview will hold a significant minority stake in the business with board representation.

Unily creates award-winning digital workplaces designed to improve collaboration, engage a geographically spread workforce and increase productivity – transforming the way companies communicate and engage with their employees. Unily’s solutions include intranets, extranets and customer portals that combine the best social channels, apps, communication tools and software packages in one place. The company services a portfolio of Fortune 500 and FTSE 250 clients, including McDonald’s, British Airways, Mars, Shell, Cathay Pacific, Microsoft and L’Oréal.

This investment will provide Unily with the scalability to seize market opportunities and to capture market share from more established providers. Furthermore, Unily is already investing in AI innovation that is forecast to be the focus of the next wave of growth in the digital experiences space.

Silversmith Capital Partners, based in Boston, and London-based Farview Equity Partners are both growth equity investors focused primarily on the technology sector.

Will Saville, Co-Founder of Unily, said: “This investment will provide Unily with the potential to disrupt the global digital experiences marketplace at greater pace and with broader reach than ever before.”

This transaction is GCA’s most recent in the software sector, as we recently advised Acumatica on its sale to EQT Partners, Kaleyra on its business combination with GigCapital and General Atlantic on its strategic partnership with Powercloud.
