Expert advice for Parcom Capital
NIBC advised Parcom Capital on the acquisition of a significant minority stake in Simpel.nl. Simpel is the largest independent, fast-growing mobile virtual network operator in the Netherlands. Parcom Capital Management, a leading mid-market private equity firm, has entered the telecoms sector for the first time with this acquisition. The transaction was completed in less than three months and contributes to the NIBC M&A and TMT&S franchise.
Appointed to advise Parcom Capital in June 2016, we offered a combination of M&A and Debt & Equity advisory expertise together with the in-depth sector knowledge of our TMT&S sector team.
Our combination of M&A expertise, particularly in private equity deals, in-depth sector knowledge and previous experience in financing telecoms transactions, and good relations with Parcom Capital Management, meant we were well positioned to assist Parcom in every aspect of the transaction. We were also able to act swiftly thanks to our professional multi-product approach and smooth cooperation due to our existing relationship with both companies.
Parcom’s first telecom deal enables it to support the accelerated growth of Simpel.nl and the expansion of its position in the market, thereby preparing the company for the next phase in its development.
NIBC’s dedicated, professional team, having previous experience with Simpel, provided in-depth knowledge of the sector, and M&A and debt advisory capabilities. With their support, Parcom was able to conclude the transaction process in a swift and efficient manner. - Piet-Hein de Jager, partner at Parcom Capital
