Igor Verhogliad, Managing Partner of Soul Partners:

"During the last 2 years our team has closed a few outstanding deals in TMT sector, such as co-advising in a $68M capital raise for Creatio, a global software company based in Ukraine led by a US-based growth equity firm Volition Capital, and investment attraction for AAA games publisher 4A Games from Chinese Tencent - world's largest video game vendor.

Speaking about the latter, it was really a favourable situation for the founders, who kept both controlling stake in business and the rights to the product, and have attracted enough funds to complete creation of a new game. Overall, gaming industry in Ukraine is growing rapidly. The market today is characterized by attractive multiples, and we know how to raise investments on the most favourable conditions for the owners”
