our deal professionals

what people are saying

In the rapidly changing HR industry, HIRE Technologies is redefining the future. We needed a long-term strategic partner who understood our growth goals, both organically and through acquisitions. When we needed capital flexibility to carry out our acquisition strategy, FirePower's private debt team was eager to collaborate with us throughout the process. They were extremely efficient, always available, and in constant communication with us from start to finish. They worked with us as a true partner and devised a creative financing solution that corresponded to the timing of our growth trajectory and financing requirements. Their hands-on strategic involvement and commitment to a long-term relationship enable us to maximize our deployable capital when required. As a result, we were able to move quickly and recently closed on a game-changing transaction. Furthermore, we have a long-term strategic partner who will help us expand in the future.

While our eventual buyer represented a great strategic and cultural fit for TSi, we faced some notable challenges throughout the process. Al and his investment banking team were instrumental in getting us over the hurdles. They detailed the compelling advantages of making this transaction work for both sides, highlighted evidence of the value the deal would create, then worked relentlessly to get us to a successful outcome.

We engaged FirePower to support our acquisition strategy: expanding verticals, adding scale to operations and strengthening F12’s presence nationally. As it turned out, we couldn’t have asked for a more hardworking team. FirePower’s perseverance building relationships with prospective targets, either directly or through their advisors, helped create awareness of F12’s interest in acquiring strong companies across Canada.

We wanted to expand the business and had ideas about how to do that, but we needed capital, which is where FirePower’s Private Equity division came in. Since acquiring Interwork in April of 2018, Anthony and the FirePower team have been very supportive of investing in our growth. There’s a lot of collaboration in terms of strategy and business direction. Anthony provides us with insights and input from a business model perspective, and that’s made a difference in our strategic thinking process.

With demand for our platform accelerating, we needed financing to fund Spark’s rapid growth, but wanted to hit a few more milestones before considering an equity raise. FirePower’s debt offering provided an effective solution, positioning the company to meet its growth objectives without the high cost of dilution.

With global demand for our platform accelerating, we needed resources to continue to grow. Trevor Simpson and his private debt team stepped in, working with our management to expeditiously craft a debt solution that provided the financing we needed to achieve our next milestones.

Since our launch in 2012, Sprout has become a leading workplace wellbeing platform, with a vision to become a global leader in technology-driven health and wellness solutions. Achieving our next phase of international growth required financing, and we considered several possible options, including FirePower’s private debt. The FirePower team dug in and worked to structure a non-dilutive, flexible debt offering that ultimately provided the best fit with our financing objectives.

FirePower was a core M&A advisor to Telos, guiding us, initially in evaluating our strategic options, and then through the transaction itself.

We have been extremely impressed by the efforts of FirePower in helping us identify a partner the team is excited to join forces with. Their support in managing the entire M&A process let our management team focus on building the business rather than being over burdened with getting the deal done. We sincerely thank FirePower for their hard work.

We had the closing call this morning, pushing us past the ever receding finish line!

I wanted to thank you for your help getting this transaction done. The Firepower M&A Advisory team delivered on all the promises. From what I have seen of the team, great things await.

In particular, I want to thank Jon and Matt who have been invaluable in every stage of the transaction and a pleasure to work with.

Vikram Varma,CFO, PrintFleet Inc.

From the outset, FirePower’s Private Capital team recognized the value in our software platform. In addition to making a series of investments in our company, they worked with us to focus our market strategy and approach, and identified a new market opportunity in the cannabis sector. At the end of the day, FirePower’s (and particularly Anthony’s) hands-on guidance and support were instrumental in securing our new partnership with Ample Organics. Now, as part of Ample’s ecosystem, we have access to the sales pipeline and resources to accelerate our growth in both the cannabis and beverage & alcohol segments.

“We needed financing to fund our rapid expansion, and preferred debt over equity to avoid significant dilution. We were already well into discussions with other lenders when FirePower’s Private Debt team came to the table. Trevor and his team invested time and effort to gain an understanding of our business, giving us confidence that they would come through. Ultimately, the team presented us with a loan structure offering the terms and flexibility that we needed, and despite being down the path with other lenders, we went with FirePower. With this loan in place, we’re well positioned to fund our rapid growth without the heavy cost of dilution.”
