GP Bullhound acted as exclusive financial advisor to talent experience platform Easyrecrue, on its sale to iCIMS.
Easyrecrue, founded in 2013, is a European leader in video interviewing and digital assessment. Easyrecrue provides a talent experience platform to optimise the candidate and employee experience, from recruitment to internal mobility.
This acquisition triples iCIMS’ global footprint, now with more than 100 employees in EMEA, and extends the capabilities of the Talent Cloud, providing its user community of more than 330 million candidates and hiring professionals with an opportunity to leverage cutting-edge video interviewing technology and assessment capabilities.
“We’ve been really impressed by iCIMS’ market leadership, innovation, and ambition, and are very excited to join forces in our shared mission to bring to the world a simplified and improved candidate experience,” said Mickaël Cabrol, Founder and CEO of Easyrecrue, and now Managing Director of EMEA at iCIMS.
“Together, we’re providing global employers with the ability to quickly and digitally hire and engage with the world’s best talent. We are thrilled to have chosen GP Bullhound to accompany us on this journey. Their sector expertise, their dedication and their drive have been key in achieving a fantastic result.”
Guillaume Bonneton, Partner, and Joy Sioufi, Executive Director at GP Bullhound, commented: “We are delighted to have advised Easyrecrue on finding the right partner for the next stage of their journey, on their path to becoming a leading global player on the HR SaaS market.”
This transaction is further testament to GP Bullhound’s expertise in SaaS, with 12 deals completed in the last 12 months in the sector alone, having previously advised Allyo on its acquisition by Hirevue, Bridgepoint on the $160m investment in Sendinblue, and EcoVadis on the $200m investment from CVC Growth Partners, among many others.
