Volpi Capital Invests in Xalient

Posted on 11th October 2022

London, 11th of October 2022: Volpi Capital, a pan-European B2B technology investor, announced its partnership with Xalient (“the Company”), a UK-based supplier of global networking and cybersecurity services. Volpi and the Company will accelerate international growth, expand the product portfolio with complementary capabilities, and scale the distinctive market proposition using M&A and further investments in the organisation. Founded in 2015, Xalient helps large corporations secure and rapidly migrate their networks to the cloud using cutting-edge technologies. It benefits from a global client base, notably in the US where it has a growing footprint. The company has demonstrated exponential growth in recent years as businesses rise to the challenge of becoming more agile, more connected, and most critically, more cybersecure. With blue-chip clients including Kellogg’s, Keurig Dr Pepper, WPP, and Avis Budget Group, Xalient was recognised as one of the fastest-growing firms in the UK and Europe in 2022.

Sherry Vaswani, Xalient’s Founder and CEO commented, “I’m extremely proud of Xalient’s accomplishments to date, especially our team of exceptional individuals in the UK, US, India and the rest of Europe, who have all helped define the company and drive its growth. Together, we have established Xalient’s market reputation for innovation and delivering business results for our clients. To continue building on this success and propel us into the next phase of our development, we set out to find an investment partner that would share our vision and ambition, align with our company culture, and have a track record of assisting disruptive technology companies like Xalient grow and prosper on a global scale. Volpi met all of these requirements. Their high-energy team brings extensive industry knowledge and growth expertise, and we’re thrilled to partner with them.” Mark Cooke, Chief Operating Officer of Xalient added, “This is an exciting time for Xalient, we are witnessing rising global demand for Xalient’s integrated networking and security proposition, and for Martina, our unique AiOps product suite that we continue to build. We are excited to have Volpi on board so that we can scale our business to meet this market need, further developing our services portfolio to maintain our uniqueness and market relevance going forwards, and expanding our global reach.”

Scott Fairlie of Volpi Capital responded, “As a thematic investor, we had identified the global networking and cybersecurity market as highly conducive to international M&A consolidation and were actively looking for the ideal team to partner with. Sherry, Mark and the rest of the Xalient team impressed us from the beginning. The Company has an expanding portfolio of leading edge technologies, a scalable organisation with integrated teams across the US, UK, India and Europe, and a track record of acquiring and growing blue chip clients over time. In short, we are delighted to partner with Xalient and continue to build on their success”.

Volpi was advised by KPMG (Financial and Tax DD), Osborne Clarke (Legal), RSM (Structuring), Altman Solon (Commercial DD) and Marsh (W&I insurance).
