BOSTON – Silversmith Capital Partners (“Silversmith”) is pleased to announce that the previously announced acquisition of Digital Map Products (“DMP” or the “Company”) by LightBox has closed.
Located in Irvine, California with over 160 employees, DMP is a leading provider of location intelligence solutions for large enterprise and government customers including Zillow, Google, Apple, CBRE and the State of California. The Company’s vision of embedding location technology into everyday workflows has allowed its over 350,000 users to make informed decisions based on real-time geospatial intelligence. DMP joins LightBox, a company whose objective is to provide real estate professionals with greater transparency, efficiency and insight at every decision point. DMP joins other LightBox acquisitions including EDR and Real Capital Markets.
Silversmith led a management recapitalization of Digital Map Products in August 2016, backing co-founders Jim Skurzynski and Geoff Wade to fuel the next phase of DMP’s growth. During the partnership, the Company executed on several strategic initiatives, including executive team expansion, optimizing go-to-market strategy and outbound marketing, and completing two tuck-in acquisitions, all while maintaining consistent, profitable organic growth.
“The best thing I can say about Silversmith Capital Partners is they care the most about the last word – ‘partners’’, said DMP co-founder and CEO, Jim Skurzynski. “While the firm brought a lot to the table in terms of their expertise in helping to grow software and data analytics businesses, the most important thing they brought was being outstanding, supportive partners throughout DMP’s journey. While we weren’t looking to cut that journey short, we believe the opportunity to partner with LightBox and continue to build our vision in the market was too hard to pass up.”
“Our success is always derivative,” said Todd MacLean, Managing Partner of Silversmith. “Our goal is to partner with talented, driven entrepreneurs and then work tirelessly to support them however we can. When we are lucky enough to reach milestones like this, the result is almost always driven by having chosen our partners wisely. We are proud to have worked with Jim, Geoff and their team over the past two-and-a-half years in building DMP into a market leader and we wish them success as part of LightBox.”
Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed. For more information on the transaction, refer to the press release issued by LightBox.
