Vigil... infini(ga)tely better

RSM's M&A and private equity team has successfully completed the sale of the award winning Vigil Software Limited to its Swiss counterpart Infinigate Holding AG.

The client

Vigil Software is a fast growing UK based value added distributor (VAD) of information security solutions. Working with over 200 resellers, Vigil’s products are supplied to 2,500 SMEs, large corporates and public bodies in the UK. The deal completes a key part of Infingate’s strategy to become the largest pan European VAD of security products.

What RSM did

RSM worked with Vigil providing strategic input and tax advice for a number of years leading up to the sale. The team then identified Infinigate as the key strategic buyer and a deal was structured which allowed the silent shareholders a clean exit whilst providing a mechanism for management to realise their remaining stake in the future.

Testimonial

'RSM sourced a great overseas buyer for us and worked tirelessly to deliver a highly complex deal involving multiple shareholder groups with very different objectives. We could not have achieved the result without them and I would have no hesitation in recommending Kirsty and her team.'
