DENVER and LONDON, Feb. 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Q Advisors and Cavell Group are pleased to announce that they have formed a strategic alliance. Through this alliance, the two firms will capitalize on Q Advisors’ deep global investment banking expertise in the telecommunications, media, and technology (TMT) industries and Cavell’s research and consulting capabilities in the cloud, VoIP and managed services arenas to offer expanded services to clients in the U.S. and Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA.) The impetus behind the alliance stems from a growing European hosted unified communications (UC) market that is anticipated to almost double in size within the next three years and a maturing U.S. cloud market with significant growth potential in the mid-to-large enterprise segments. U.S. service providers are particularly well poised to tap into the accelerating European cloud growth opportunity, while large European operators are looking to expand their operations into the sophisticated U.S. cloud market to serve U.S.-based enterprises with multi-location, global operations. Q Advisors and Cavell are therefore joining forces to ensure they can fully service the spectrum of investment banking, research and advisory requirements that global firms typically need to pursue cross-border transactions.
“Our strategic alliance with Cavell Group, a leading research and consulting firm in the telecom, cloud, and managed services sectors, will enhance our offering, particularly for U.S. TMT companies seeking to expand into Europe. We will be in a better position than ever before to provide deep intelligence on these highly specialized sectors and more local access in Europe,” stated Michael Quinn, a partner at Q Advisors.
Matthew Townend, Director, Research & Consulting, Cavell Group said, “Our strategic alliance with Q Advisors is a natural extension of our current activities. It will expand our reach into the U.S., while enabling our EMEA customers to benefit from Q Advisors’ expertise. Our firms are confident that through our combined market-leading expertise and experience, we can help our clients accelerate the growth of their businesses.”
Q Advisors and Cavell will officially kick off their alliance at the upcoming European VOIP Summit on March 1 in London, hosted by Cavell Group. Quinn and Townend are both slated to speak at the conference, along with a roster of industry leaders.
