Vertus Group is a forever home for vertical market software companies. We acquire software companies from all over the globe and are committed to the preservation and longevity of each business we acquire. Since our first acquisition in 2003, we have been committed to acquiring great companies and working with the founders to drive future growth.
We are a team of acquirers who have been acquired ourselves. Our first mission is to ensure that our goals are aligned with your company. Whether you are an Owner/Operator, M&A Advisor, or looking to do a Corporate Carve Out, we strive to have open and honest conversations with you to uncover how we can help sustain the success of your business long term.
We seek to acquire, not control. With our team of M&A experts, wealth of integration experience, and industry leadership, we aim to continuously acquire and add fantastic companies to the Vertus Group family while letting you retain your operating autonomy. After all, no one knows your business as well as you do.
We want to grow with you. As part of Vertus Group, your company gains access to a global network of vertical market software experts and fellow business owners who will share strategic insights, industry best practices, and provide coaching. We position our companies for long-term success by continuously learning, sharing, and investing in our people.
We have never sold a company, and we never will. Our buy-and-hold philosophy means we find strong leaders who run great companies and provide them with the confidence that we will be there to support them and their team forever. After all, when bringing you into our family, we wouldn't want to break up yours.
"Vertus Group's philosophy of preserving the culture and legacy of the brand you built resonated with me. After meeting with the team, speaking with other potential investors, and checking references, I was even more convinced that moving to a platform like Vertus/CSI would be the right move for our company.
The process of working with Vertus was well-defined, managed with transparency, and there were no real bumps along the way. The outcome was a successful one for all stakeholders."
"Knowing that the company could continue to grow and the staff could thrive with further opportunities were key parts of the decision to be acquired. The buy and hold forever approach convinced us, as the business owners, that our vision for the company's future potential was shared. Vertus Group's track record of managing and growing vertical market software companies convinced us that, among the range of offers on the table, this one was the right move."
"I’ve been through several acquisitions in my career, Vertus Group's was the easiest. The communication and vision was clear and concise. The buy and hold forever strategy along with a software for life philosophy really resonated with me and others on the sales and marketing team. Working with a larger organization like Vertus Group provides opportunities to grow that just wouldn’t exist within smaller stand-alone companies. Vertus is a great company, with great people and a great future."
"As I have progressed through the ranks at Vertus Group, I’ve been grateful for the valuable support, opportunities and guidance that have contributed to my growth. The company’s role in my journey has been significant and meaningful."
"Lean was looking for a long-term partner that would allow us to leverage the tools and best practices from other software companies in order to allow us to excel in our market. When we heard about Vertus Group's buy and hold forever philosophy, we knew we found the right home for our company. Since the acquisition, Vertus has provided a wealth of knowledge to our business and our people which has allowed Lean to maximize its potential and overcome challenges. "
"After a decade as a Club Manager in Ireland, I joined Jonas Club International in 2015 as General Manager in London. Overseeing 3 businesses across the UK, Ireland, Middle East, South Africa, and Kenya, I absorbed Jonas' effective practices. I then became VP of Operations in Toronto, collaborating strategically with a strong Management Team. Following the acquisition of Bookassist by the Vertus Group, I returned to Dublin to integrate and co-lead it with the founder. By September 2022, I stepped into a Group Leader role in the Jonas Club & Hospitality Portfolio, overseeing Bookassist and Vizergy. Simultaneously, I cultivate relationships with potential vendors for future acquisitions. This journey has enriched me with unexpected growth, valuable connections, and the privilege of working within Jonas Software."
"Vertus Group accelerated the trajectory of our vertical market software company, Club Caddie. Since being acquired in 2020, Vertus' brand legitimacy, advice, and best practices have helped us to double our revenue for three consecutive years. Our team is happier and our business is in a much better place."
