In 2013, compliance software business CMO was looking for a financial partner capable of driving growth whilst allowing management to retain control of the business, and so was drawn to Inflexion. In 2016, CMO was sold to Mitratech, a US-headquartered global software provider.
October 2013 - June 2016
CMO provides enterprise health, safety, environment (HSE) and governance, risk, compliance (GRC) software solutions for global corporations and regulators.
CMO serves blue-chip customers including Maersk Group, KPMG, Heathrow Airport and BHP. Operating in a large global market enjoying double-digit annual growth, demand for CMO’s products is driven by an increased need for configurable compliance software, increasing regulation as well as the increasing cost of non-compliance.
The Inflexion investment
Having created a best-in-class product suite, CMO sought a partner who could introduce them to skilled individuals to add depth to their team and strengthen their operations to ensure their corporate infrastructure kept pace with their sales growth.
The Inflexion difference
As part of our investment, Inflexion introduced Loek Van den Boog as Chairman. A highly experienced software industry veteran, Loek was head of Oracle EMEA and also held board and management positions with multiple global technology companies, supporting them through periods of high growth and rapid change.
