Carlsquare advised Actando SA in its acquisition by Red Nucleus, a Portfolio Company of The Riverside Company

Actando is a Geneva, Switzerland-based software and services company that delivers immersive learning experiences to life sciences customers. The acquisition of Actando by Red Nucleus strengthens its European footprint and expands its suite of products and services.

As a European company we felt it was essential to have a US-based advisor for this transaction. Susan Blanco, John Cooper and the Capital Clarity team brought the sector expertise and the understanding of the US markets; and most critically, their extensive relationships with the US strategic buyer and private equity domains. We found them to be an invaluable partner in this experience,” said Alexandre Dauge, CEO of Actando.

Financial terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
