The company’s cloud-native solution provides a centralized platform that manages end-to-end order fulfilment and visibility, facilitating over €2.5bn orders annually.

The funding will be used by OneStock to accelerate investment in geographic expansion, go-to-market initiatives and continued product leadership.

Romulus Grigoras, CEO of OneStock, said: “We chose Alantra to advise us on this unsolicited transaction given their extensive track record in tech M&A and their international presence; both teams in Paris and London proved to be very effective in helping us smoothly secure the deal in a short period of time. Highly recommended! Their excellent knowledge of the tech market and SaaS in particular, as well as their good understanding of our business, resulted in a well calibrated deal.”

Adrian Yurkwich at Silverfleet, added: “We selected Alantra due to their deep software sector expertise and fully integrated team across London and Paris. Their knowledge of the investor universe meant they were able to efficiently deliver the transaction on an accelerated basis and resulted in a strong return for our European Development Fund.”

Oriane Durvye, Managing Partner at Alantra, said: “We are delighted to have advised the shareholders of OneStock in this transaction. They have built a truly differentiated OMS platform that delivers considerable ROI to omnichannel brands, retailers and logistics services providers through more efficient management of inventory across all channels. Our cross-border French/UK tech team has been able to combine its intimate knowledge of the investor ecosystem with its software transactional expertise to the greatest benefit of OneStock’s shareholders and management, providing them with a 360-degree advisory service.”

Oliver Parker, Partner at Alantra, said: “In Summit, we believe Onestock has found the ideal partner to help drive further international expansion and become the pre-eminent pureplay OMS platform globally and we wish Romulus and the whole OneStock team the best of luck for the future. It was also a pleasure to support Adrian and the team at Silverfleet in the successful realisation of their investment.
