Harris Williams, a global investment bank specializing in M&A advisory services, announces it advised Bamboo Rose, a portfolio company of McCarthy Capital (McCarthy), on its strategic investment from Rubicon Technology Partners (Rubicon). Bamboo Rose is a leading unified product lifecycle and supply chain software platform for retailers, brands, and suppliers. The transaction was led by Andy Leed, Erik Szyndlar, Ryan Costa, Nick DeGallier and Jeff Doremus of the Harris Williams Technology Group.
"As a recognized leader in product lifecycle management and supply chain software, Bamboo Rose has developed a powerful platform that connects a global community of retailers, brands, and their suppliers on a single multi-enterprise network, enabling key stakeholders on both the supply and demand side to enhance supply chain visibility, improve product traceability, and meet compliance standards," said Andy Leed, a managing director at Harris Williams. "It was a pleasure working with founder and CEO Sue Welch, the Bamboo Rose management team, and McCarthy on this transaction, and we are excited to see what the company accomplishes in partnership with Rubicon."
"Rubicon's investment in Bamboo Rose represents another premium transaction for Harris Williams within the supply chain software sector," said Ryan Costa, a director at Harris Williams. "Increasing supply chain complexity coupled with constantly evolving consumer preferences and a greater ocus on environmental, social, and corporate governance initiatives are not only driving demand for Bamboo Rose's solutions, but also fueling investment activity across the broader supply chain software sector. We expect strong investor and strategic buyer interest to continue as these trends create new challenges for organizations."
