We Buy Business Software Companies

SELL US YOURS

Since 1988, we’ve been experts in Enterprise Software,
and our acquisition strategy offers seller-friendly, all-cash, high-close deals

Transactions are quick-turn and more importantly no nonsense. In many cases 10 days to LOI, 45 days to close with no post-close contingencies. Our streamlined process focuses on simple metrics, and our valuation methodology overlooks unattractive growth rates and/or earnings history.

ESW means Enterprise Software.
