ChanneLinx Acquired by Pervasive

Tequity, a North American M&A advisory firm specializing in strategic Information Technology M&A transactions, acted as the exclusive financial advisor to South Carolina-based ChanneLinx, Inc. in their acquisition by Pervasive Software Inc.

ChanneLinx facilitates the creation, management, and distribution of information electronically.  

Austin, Texas-based Pervasive Software (NASDAQ: PVSW) develops and distributes data management and integration software to integrate, analyze, secure, manage and harvest data from disparate sources.

“With our loyal customer base, deep data interchange technology and expertise, and strengths in the oil and gas and construction verticals, the ChanneLinx team brings powerful complementary technology and market strengths to Pervasive,” said Steve Pridemore, senior director, Pervasive Business Xchange. “We’re excited to leverage and extend our ten years of in-depth data interchange technology leadership with Pervasive’s technical, sales and marketing resources, well-developed channels and large customer base.”

“I am very excited about the synergies between ChanneLinx and the other product teams within Pervasive,” Farr said. “We see complementary opportunities in every sector of our business:

  • Pervasive Data Integrator™ provides industry-leading last-mile integration that can help ChanneLinx hub and trading partner customers rapidly and affordably connect an enormous range of endpoint data sources and applications to the WebDI data interchange.
  • Pervasive DataSolutions offers immediate, affordable, Web-based integration for ChanneLinx customers who use QuickBooks and Salesforce CRM or Microsoft Dynamics CRM.
  • ChanneLinx has a strong, stable customer base including blue-chip companies like Lumbermens Merchandising Corporation and L&W Supply. Pervasive DataRush™ can bring breakthrough high-performance analytics and data-crunching capabilities to their massive datasets.
  • And, we’re excited about the opportunity to introduce ChanneLinx’ low-cost, Web-based business exchange automation between trading partners to existing Pervasive customers, including Pervasive PSQL™ ISV partners, as well as to new prospects.”
