The FirePower way.

We exist so our clients can thrive in today’s complex business environment and achieve results.

We’ve done it through a tireless dedication to our clients’ aspirations and an innate desire to do right by them. Here are some of proudest success stories.

Environics

July 2018

Environics Analytics (“EA”) is a leading North American provider of marketing and analytical services. The company needed financing to support its expansion plans in the US and Canadian markets, and wanted to secure capital from a senior lender that understood EA’s value drivers. FirePower surfaced numerous proposals, then negotiated and improved on the terms and conditions to the benefit of EA.

Decisive

June 2018

Decisive Technologies is a value-added reseller of IT hardware, and BriteSky Technologies is a Canadian, managed cloud services provider (collectively “Decisive”). After five years of successful organic growth, Decisive needed additional capital to accelerate its expansion plans. The shareholders were adamant that a new investor should have values and a vision for the company that aligned with theirs, and FirePower was engaged to find an investor and negotiate a deal structure that met all of the shareholders’ objectives.

F12.net

May 2018

F12.net (“F12”), a leading Canadian Managed Service Provider (MSP), was executing on a highly successful acquisition strategy, and FirePower was engaged as the company looked towards the GTA area for expansion. The FirePower team built a comprehensive target list and crafted a story emphasizing F12’s amazing corporate culture.  Of the potential targets, Apps on Tap represented an exciting synergistic addition for F12, and with FirePower’s support, F12 acquired Apps on Tap in May, 2018.

Pita Pit Canada

April 2018

Pita Pit Canada ("PPC") is the franchisor to 228 Pita Pit locations across Canada. FirePower's Investment Banking team was engaged to arrange financing for its acquisition of a majority interest in Pita Pit International ("PPI"). FirePower generated multiple proposals from prospective lenders, negotiating and structuring favourable terms and pricing with a lender interested in supporting PPC's future expansion plans.

Printfleet

December 2017

FirePower was engaged to prepare PrintFleet for an exit to strategics, and guide the company through to closing. Four weeks before closing, the buyer with whom PrintFleet signed an LOI following a competitive auction, a Japanese Fortune 500 company, terminated the deal because of an internal reorganization. Far from giving up, FirePower re-ignited conversations with a Texas-based strategic who had done well in the auction, and closed without any major challenges at an attractive price, terms and conditions.
