Mayer Brown advises Francisco Partners on acquisition of Consignor Group


Mayer Brown has advised Francisco Partners on the financing of its acquisition of the Consignor Group.

Founded in Oslo in 1997, Consignor has grown to be one of the leading providers of delivery management software by making it simpler, quicker and cost effective to ship orders to customers and by making delivery a competitive advantage.

Francisco Partners is a leading global private equity firm that specializes in investments in technology and technology-enabled businesses. Since its launch 20 years ago, Francisco Partners has raised approximately $24 billion in committed capital and invested in more than 300 technology companies, making it one of the most active and longstanding investors in the technology industry.

“We were very happy to be able to assist the team at Francisco Partners on yet another acquisition, especially given the global macro-economic situation in the first half of this year. We take immense pride in understanding our clients and aligning ourselves with their objectives to provide efficient and seamless delivery on leveraged finance transactions in Europe,” said Stuart Brinkworth, head of Leverage Finance in Europe at Mayer Brown.

The Mayer Brown team was led by Stuart Brinkworth and included Banking & Finance — senior associate Danister de Silva and associate Iel Mirasol; Corporate & Securities — partner James West and associate Richard Sheard (all London).
