We successfully concluded four deals over the past year with a combined transaction value of R1.1 billion. With an average deal size of R280 million, Novitas Capital Advisors firmly established its credentials as a mid-market adviser in the R100 million – R1 billion range.
Advising Spark ATM Systems (FinTech) on their sale to the Nasdaq-listed Cardtronics, and FoxP2 (Advertising) on their sale to Nikkei-listed Dentsu Aegis, we reinforced our cross-border M&A credentials and demonstrated that we can successfully close deals with large listed counterparties globally. Closer to home, we’re extremely proud of the work we did advising Cyberlogic (IT Services) on its transaction with Stellar Capital-backed IEIT, and Cruises International (Travel & Leisure) on its sale to Bidvest.
Regardless of the industry sector, location of the parties or type of transaction, we pride ourselves on understanding our clients’ unique value drivers, sourcing the most appropriate buyers or investors globally, and then negotiating a deal that provides our clients with full value and the counter-party with a fair transaction that meets their needs.
We wish you a relaxing and restorative festive season and wish you every success and happiness for 2018.
