Capstone Partners LLC, a leading investment banking firm, announced that it has successfully advised CCI on its acquisition by Zyme. Capstone Partners acted as exclusive financial advisor to CCI on this transaction, the terms of which were not disclosed.
CCI delivers channel incentive management services, software, and expertise, with a special focus on optimizing MDF and co-op marketing programs that clients use to drive resale partners to achieve specific goals. CCI currently works with some of the world’s most successful technology companies, including Google, Sony, Toshiba and VMware.
Teak Murphy, Director at Capstone Partners commented, “CCI was an early pioneer in the channel management software space and has remained at the forefront of innovation, attracting a marquee customer base. The fact that CCI Founder Steve Isaacs and CEO Debra Delaney achieved that success without outside funding is even more impressive. With the channel management SaaS space quickly consolidating, CCI was well positioned as a critical player and, after exploring several attractive strategic options, decided the best fit was to combine with Zyme. Zyme represented an ideal partner with a highly complementary product offering and strong management team to execute on a combined vision for the future of the company.”
Delaney commented, “Choosing to work with Capstone to sell our business was the best decision we could have made. The team was always available when we needed them, very knowledgeable, patient as we learned the process, and through it all, easy to work with. Our perfect deal took time to come around, but their attention to our success never faltered. Thank you Capstone!”
