05 March 2021
Lewis Silkin has advised financial software analytics firm Metapraxis on an equity investment and secured convertible loan facility from Avant Corporation.
Metapraxis’ core offering, the “Empower” platform, helps finance teams to plan, model, analyse and report on one, unified, platform, accelerating digital transformation.
Avant was established in 1997 and listed on the First Section of the Tokyo Stock Exchange in March 2018. Avant is currently developing its consolidated accounting, business intelligence and CFO outsourcing businesses, and so Metapraxis was a natural partner.
The Lewis Silkin team was led by Corporate Managing Associate, Barnaby Stokes, with support from Corporate Tax Partner, Matthew Rowbotham; Corporate Debt Finance Partner, Gavin McNaughton; and Corporate Associate, Georgina Fraser.
Commenting on the deal, Simon Bittlestone, Metapraxis CEO, said:
“The dedication, experience and commercial guidance provided by the Lewis Silkin team were invaluable in helping to complete this investment in a tight time frame across multiple time zones.”
Commenting on the deal, Barnaby Stokes said:
“It’s was a privilege to work with Simon and his team in order to secure what we hope will be a transformational investment for Metapraxis. We wish both Avant and Metapraxis every success with the new partnership.”
