Global Reach

As software and IT companies compete in the global market, any serious effort to find a suitable partner must include careful consideration of both domestic and international companies. Business leaders know how difficult it is to build a customer base and distribution channel in a foreign country and are willing to pay a premium for international expansion.

Recognizing this simple business reality, Corum has led the industry in developing a true worldwide presence, with offices globally across North America and Europe, and has completed transactions spanning 6 continents. Corum has built an international research center in Zurich, Switzerland, and has offices in the key European market centers, along with its U.S. and regional directorships across the Americas. In addition, Corum holds regular software M&A conferences internationally--over 100 every year in North America, South America, Europe and Asia--speaks regularly at industry functions, publishes international software M&A newsletters and research, and has developed alliances with many foreign technical organizations, trade associations and publications.

The end result of this vision: an unprecedented 60 percent of Corum's transactions involve a cross-border buyer or seller.

quotesAfter several conversations, even flying to multiple offices, we began to learn that our team was going to stay intact, we were going to be part of a growing part of the business, and really able to make a difference and move the needle. All those things were very important to us to moving forward, while the mechanics of the deal, the valuations, the terms and things like that, we had a great partner in Corum to help lead us through that. quotes
