Omniplex Learning’s acquisition of Nickelled

Client: Omniplex Learning

Services provided: Identification of off market acquisition opportunity and buyside acquisition support and due diligence

Identifying off market acquisition opportunities is particularly useful for companies pursuing a buy and build strategy. 

We were delighted to support LDC-backed Omniplex Learning – a leading provider of digital learning and development services - make their first such acquisition when they bought SAAS digital adoption specialist Nickelled.

Using Cortus Compass, we were able to define Omniplex Learning’s acquisition criteria and match it against a target list of relevant opportunities.  We then helped them to refine that list and approach those they were most interested in. 

This ultimately led to them making an offer and we provided further buyside support through to acquisition due diligence.

Alex Ford, who led the acquisition search said, “Cortus Compass was able to create a pipeline of acquisitions and identify a number of potential targets that will support Omniplex Learning on increasing its breadth of solutions to the eLearning market.  It was a pleasure working with the Management team to provide buyside support from our initial search through to completion.  The acquisition was further supported by our TS team who provided the Financial Due Diligence too.”
