Q Advisors, a global boutique investment bank serving public and private companies, PE firms, entrepreneurs and large multi-nationals in the telecom, media, and technology (TMT) sectors, will establish a European presence in Amsterdam to provide enhanced support to its existing and prospective global clients. Q Advisors founding partner, Michael Quinn, will manage the firm’s presence, which will commence in September.
The presence in Amsterdam comes as the firm has witnessed significant growth and consolidation in the European cloud and managed services sector, as well as the need for strategic financial support services throughout the region.
We have seen and have been involved in a significant number of European cloud and managed services deals over the last 12 months,” comments Quinn. “Establishing a presence in Amsterdam is a natural and logical extension of the critical services Q Advisors has provided to our European clients over the last year and we are looking forward to continuing to meet this need.
With a number of deals already completed, Q Advisors is currently working on many additional mandates in Europe. Q Advisors acted as financial advisor in these recent transactions:
- STARFACE in its recapitalization by funds advised by Maxburg Capital Partners
- Dean One in its acquisition by Gamma Communications
- Centile in its acquisition by Swyx and Within Reach Group
- Swyx Solutions in its acquisition by Waterland
- Mtel in its acquisition by EvolveIP
- Motto in its acquisition by Destiny
In addition to its M&A practice, Q Advisors’ capital markets and private placement team has extensive experience on both sides of financing transactions, having served as advisors with industry-leading financing institutions. The team has also raised significant equity and debt capital in founding and managing operating companies. This unique blend of advisory and operating experience enables Q Advisors to bring real-world solutions to financing strategies. As owners who know what it’s like to live with the terms of growth or recapitalization financing, Q Advisors is uniquely skilled at structuring institutional debt, equity, and hybrid financing to public and private companies in the telecom, media, and technology sectors.
