Driving enterprise transformation.
London, 19 January 2021 - GP Bullhound acted as exclusive financial advisor to Orbus Software on its acquisition by private equity firm SilverTree Equity.

Over 550 enterprises around the world and across all industry verticals – including many Fortune 500/FTSE 350 and public sector organisations – rely on Orbus’ software, which uniquely integrates to Microsoft’s Office 365 Ecosystem and Azure as well as other applications, offering unparalleled usability and collaboration.

Orbus Software founder, Andy Donoghue, said: “The acquisition by SilverTree represents the next stage in the evolution of Orbus Software and is a ringing endorsement of our market reputation for excellent customer service, our dedication to product innovation, and most of all, the great people at Orbus. GP Bullhound’s deep sector expertise, network and dedication were instrumental in ensuring a successful outcome for this transaction.”
