“We are pleased to have partnered with Webex and to complete a very successful exit,” commented Wynnchurch Partner Frank Hayes. “Livingstone’s sector knowledge and deal expertise throughout the sale process was critical to closing the transaction.”
“Webex built a compelling platform through a combination of product development, engineering expertise and strategic acquisitions that was attractive to many potential acquirers,” explains Partner at Livingstone Chicago, Steve Miles. “We’re proud to have represented Webex and to add Wynnchurch as another satisfied private equity client to Livingstone’s ranks.”
