The ICFG member Corporate Finance Associates, Inc., is pleased to announce that it was the exclusive advisor to JMM Global on its sale to BSM Technologies Inc.
BSM Technologies Inc. ("BSM") (TSX-V: GPS), a leading provider of remote monitoring, fleet management, fleet diagnostics and automated vehicle security systems, through BSM AcquirorCo, LLC, an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary, has acquired 100% of the membership interests of privately held JMM Management Group LLC d/b/a JMM Global ("JMM"), an Illinois limited liability company ("JMM”).
Mr. Aly Rahemtulla, BSM President & CEO, commented on the JMM acquisition: "While fixed asset monitoring is a small portion of our business today, we recognize the significant synergies that exist between both stationary and mobile assets for the enterprise customer. We believe the fixed asset market remains underpenetrated and presents a significant growth opportunity for BSM. JMM brings a complementary compliance focus, a high-quality customer base and skilled team - a great platform from which to grow our tank monitoring business and become a bigger player in the fixed asset segment of the market."
“CFA worked with us to craft the best strategy for JMM and then followed through on the execution of the plan,” said Jon Marinas, President of JMM Global. “We were impressed with the level of service provided along the way and truly believe they found a perfect fit with BSM”.
“It is exciting to be involved with a company like JMM, and we are extremely pleased with the outcome of our process,” stated Joe Contaldo, Managing Director of CFA. “The JMM and BSM deal teams were well-oiled and absolute professionals.”
