Retail Insight is a high growth UK-based provider of retail operation analytics that offers store-focused SaaS solutions and associated services to global retailers and CPG suppliers.  Its solutions leverage store and estate data to drive better decision-making to deliver immediate, substantial and quantifiable ROI through increased sales and cost savings.  It was acquired by Ventiga Capital Partners in July 2019.

BDO supported Retail Insight in raising finance to fund a post-acquisition earn-out payment.  The company was able to select from a wide variety of deliverable lender offers, sourced from private debt funds, clearing banks and technology specialists.

"Retail Insight is a unique and rapidly evolving company, generating substantial growth by providing SaaS solutions and associated services to large retailers. The BDO Debt Advisory team worked hard to source a variety of innovate debt offers by demonstrating a compelling credit story and moulding terms to align with our funding objectives. We have now worked with BDO Debt Advisory over a number of different processes, and they have delivered every time!"
