The M&A team at BDO in East Anglia has advised the shareholders of business continuity specialists Vocal, on the sale of the company to Californian based emergency communications group Everbridge Inc.
Everbridge’s acquisition of Vocal further elevates Everbridge’s status as the world’s largest provider of emergency notification and critical communication solutions.
Vocal is recognized as Europe’s most trusted innovator and award-winning provider of business continuity, emergency notification, and incident response solutions. Today, Vocal serves over 1,000 customers across 85 countries, including some of the world’s largest employers and central government organisations. Vocal was selected as the emergency and incident messaging supplier for the 2012 London Olympics. Everbridge’s vision is to deliver unified critical communication solutions worldwide. The combination of Vocal’s reputation, expertise, and infrastructure and Everbridge’s global operations and market leadership enhances the company’s ability to manage truly global unified critical communication.
BDO were instrumental in ensuring the deal reached a successful completion. They were an important link in dealing with the key issues and supporting us throughout the deal. At all times I found them to be extremely professional and well informed and I would recommend them as advisers.
