Wayne, PA, January 10, 2024 – Inverness Graham (“IGI”), a Philadelphia based buyout firm that acquires innovative, high-growth businesses, is pleased to announce the sale of Syntrio to Mitratech, a global technology partner for corporate legal, risk & compliance and HR professionals. Syntrio is a leading ethics & compliance platform purpose built for the GRC needs of dynamic businesses.
IGI formed the Syntrio platform in June of 2019 through the acquisition and merger of two businesses, Syntrio and Lighthouse Services. This initial combination established a robust employee reporting and e-learning solutions platform and set a strong foundation for three subsequent add-on acquisitions that enhanced capabilities and expanded the company’s addressable market. At Syntrio, IGI focused on the build-out of a world-class management team to drive product, sales and marketing. Inverness Graham’s Strategic Platform Build playbook culminated in the transformation of Syntrio into a fully integrated ethics and compliance technology solutions provider.
“We are thrilled about the next chapter of Syntrio’s journey,” stated Michael Morrissey, Managing Principal at Inverness Graham. “Syntrio solves ethics & compliance needs for thousands of customers globally and has established itself as a market leader in its space. We are proud of the platform that we built with Tom O’Keefe leading a great team and preparing the business for continued success.”
Shea & Company served as the exclusive financial advisor, and Faegre Drinker Biddle & Reath LLP served as counsel to Syntrio and Inverness Graham on the transaction.
Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
