Camden Partners recaps Proposal Software

Camden Partners has recapitalized Proposal Software Inc, a Broomfield, Colorado-based provider of sales proposal, RFP and compliance software. No financial terms were disclosed. SC&H Capital advised Proposal Software on the transaction.



SC&H Capital, a leading investment banking and advisory firm focused on middle market and growth companies, served as the exclusive financial advisor for the shareholders of Proposal Software, Inc. (“Proposal Software” or “the Company”) on its recapitalization by Camden Partners, a Baltimore-based private equity firm.

Headquartered in Broomfield, Colo., Proposal Software is a premier independent cloud-based provider of sales proposal and RFPs, and compliance software. The Company’s suite of products accelerates the conversion of RFP and new business opportunities into revenue, while ensuring correct, up to date, and compliant data is used throughout the sales process. Proposal Software serves a variety of marquee clients in a number of industries.

Camden Partners is a Baltimore-based private equity firm focused on seed and growth stage investments in healthcare, education, technology and business services companies.

“Generating proposals that contain accurate, up-to-date information can be time-consuming and resource-intensive, creating a bottleneck in the sales process,” said Jason Tagler, Camden Partners managing member. “We believe Proposal Software’s cloud platform can help relieve that bottleneck and accelerate sales.”

The recapitalization will allow one of the co-founders of Proposal Software to transition to retirement, while the other co-founder, members of the management team, and the acquiring firm will collaborate and invest in order to facilitate the next stage of the company’s growth.

“This transaction marks the beginning of an exciting new period for Proposal Software,” said Kevin O’Sullivan, Principal with SC&H Capital. “The recapitalization will allow Proposal Software to further enhance its current products and be well prepared to capitalize on future opportunities for growth and expansion.”

This transaction is SC&H Capital’s second SaaS transaction closed in 2015.
