As per Nat Burgess, President of Corum Group, Ltd., “Corum operates globally and has had multiple successes in the recent past selling clients from Canada to international buyers." Recent Corum M&A Transactions in Canada include Privasoft, Summit Software, TalkSwitch, Progeny, emBoot, among others. “Corum has sold more Canadian software companies than any other M&A firm, and has been active in the Canadian market for over 20 years. Our commitment to Tech M&A in Canada remains unwavering as we welcome Peter to our team," says Burgess.
