We are delighted to have advised Force 24 Limited on the growth capital investment into their leading marketing automation platform.

Force 24 is an award-winning marketing automation business based in Leeds.  

Force 24 engaged our corporate finance team to assist in finding a strategic partner to support its growth ambitions and also provide a partial liquidity event for the shareholders.  

A tailored funding solution was provided by YFM Equity Partners to provide the necessary levels of development capital to unlock the next phase of growth and deliver an element of cash out to the existing shareholders.  

Our software sector knowledge combined with our private equity expertise, enabled us to provide deep insight into the opportunity to the funding audience and articulate how Force 24 is well placed to rapidly expand in its market.  We ran a competitive process to deliver best terms and executed an excellent deal for all involved.  


The Grant Thornton corporate finance team delivered a result exceeding our expectations. Their knowledge of the funding landscape, combined with their deep technical understanding of our platform and market, delivered a fantastic result for both the company and its shareholders. The outcome is testament to their tenacity, dedication and negotiation skills. Thank you for your invaluable support, guidance and advice throughout the journey.

Adam Oldfield Managing Director, Force 24 Limited
