Navilon assists CloudRaker in its transaction.

cloudraker

Navilon acted as a strategic advisor to CloudRaker – a digital agency in Canada – and its shareholders as part of a merger with the French company Altavia. In this role, the Navilon team participated in the strategic thinking of CloudRaker’s shareholders to develop future growth paths. It then became clear that growth required specialization in the retail sector and the addition of a strategic partner.

This reflection led to the choice of a strategic partner: Altavia. Navilon assisted CloudRaker’s shareholders at all stages of this transaction. Our team negotiated on behalf of them with Altavia representatives and ensured that all shareholder objectives are taken into account throughout the process. Our involvement enabled CloudRaker to continue to do what they do best during this time.
