OTTAWA, ON, Jan. 13, 2022 /CNW/ – Welch Capital Partners ("WCP") is pleased to announce that it acted as the exclusive M&A Advisor to Agile Work Evolutions Inc., ("AWE"), an Ottawa based real estate technology company focused on workplace strategy and implementation.
The Client:
Using its proprietary Services-enabled Software (SeS), AWE helps clients solve the universal business challenge – how do your employees want to work and what are the impacts to your organization of adopting a particular workplace model? Since being founded in 2019, the company has enjoyed exponential growth as all businesses struggle to find their optimal solution.
The Transaction:
AWE engaged WCP to advise on its sale process following a number of strategic considerations. WCP ran a process for the transaction that ultimately led to the AWE ownership group selling to Cresa Global, Inc. ("Cresa"). Cresa’s focus on tenant representation and workplace strategy make them the ideal strategic partner for AWE going forward.
Meredith Thatcher, co-founder of AWE said "I’d like to thank Welch Capital Partners for their role in the sale process and helping us find the right buyer from a transaction and strategic perspective." Co-founder Dr. Lisa Chillingworth Watson added: "I’d like to express our excitement to begin working with the team at Cresa and leveraging their brand and client base to continue to propel AWE’s performance."
AWE will continue to operate as a standalone entity, with co-founders, Dr. Lisa Chillingworth Watson and Meredith Thatcher remaining as Managing Principals, while concurrently helping to build Cresa’s Global Portfolio Solutions practice.
