DealCloud Survey Shows Optimism as Private Investors Look Beyond the Pandemic

Intapp

Fundraising Expectations High as Firms Gear Up to Deploy Dry Powder Limited COVID-19 Impact on Portfolios DealCloud (an Intapp company), a leading provider of deal, relationship and firm management solutions for capital markets firms, today released the Fall 2020 edition of its Dealmaker Pulse Survey, which indicates that private investors have moved past pandemic concerns regarding impact on current investments and are now concentrating on sourcing and closing new deals. In addition, a surprising number of firms raising new funds expect to meet or exceed their targets, despite existing dry powder. “In the six months since our last survey, the focus has shifted from portfolio concerns to dealmaking,” said Ben Harrison, co-founder and president of DealCloud. “Investors expect founder-owned businesses to see significant deal activity, though private equity firms of all sizes recognize that finding quality assets at fair valuations will be a challenge with increased competition.” The survey also revealed that fundraising may be returning to pre-pandemic levels. Only 12% of investors postponed or suspended fundraising plans, and a mere 6% lowered the target for their next fund. Meanwhile, an impressive 26% said their next fund will actually be larger than originally anticipated. Other findings from the survey include: New platforms are the focus: 70% of investors said new platform investments are their primary focus over the next six months, compared to 35% six months ago Fewer investors expect valuations to decline further: only 35% of respondents said they expect valuations to decline, down from 93% in April The pandemic continues to impact the work environment: 47% of private equity firms have plans to return to the office, and only 40% have plans to resume business development travel, as technology-driven operations are seen by many as a bare minimum to remain competitive and cultivate key relationships For some, dealmaking evaporated: 30% of investors said their firm did not close a deal (platform or add-on) since March “Clearly, investors are eager to deploy dry powder, but questions remain about who is able to close deals in this environment,” said Chris Gaffney, co-founder and managing partner of Great Hill Partners, a leading growth-oriented private equity firm. “Many firms are finding ways to close deals even as business development teams remain grounded, suggesting that the relationship cultivation that has traditionally taken place face-to-face has become increasingly reliant on technology over the past six months.” DealCloud’s Dealmaker Pulse Fall 2020 Survey polled dealmakers to gain key insights into how capital markets firms are dealing with the effects of the global pandemic and thinking about opportunities for the fourth quarter, next year and beyond. The online survey was conducted via DealCloud Dispatch, the platform’s integrated marketing solution, amid the COVID-19 crisis from Sept. 21 to Oct. 5, 2020. DealCloud will host a webinar to provide more color on the results of the DealCloud Dealmaker Pulse Fall 2020 Survey: Dealmaker Pulse: Key Findings for Capital Markets Firms to Take into 2021 Thursday, Nov. 11, 2020 at 11:00am EST Register here: https://dealcloud.com/event/dealcloud-dealmaker-pulse-key-findings-for-capital-markets-firms-to-take-into-2021/ To see the full results of the DealCloud Dealmaker Pulse Fall 2020 Survey, visit dealcloud.com/pulse.

LEADING CALIFORNIA BUSINESS ADVOCACY ORGANIZATIONS WARNED OF CONSEQUENCES OF ANTHEM BLUE CROSS POLICY

California Rheumatology Alliance

The California Rheumatology Alliance (CRA) along with many other physician and patient advocacy organizations are working to enlist the business community to join in its fight against implementation of a harmful prescription policy from Anthem Blue Cross. The dangerous policy will make it nearly impossible for certain treatments (specifically infusion therapy) to be conducted in physician offices – under their care. The policy is being rushed to implementation on December 1, 2020. In letters to business advocacy organizations, CRA warns the business community of the looming threat to the California workforce. Recipients of the letter include, but are not limited to: California Chamber of Commerce (CalChamber) California Federation of Business & Professional Women California Small Business Association California Hispanic Chambers of Commerce “Anthem’s new policy transfers medications covered on the medical side of insurance to the pharmacy side. While more economically lucrative for the payers and specialty pharmacies, based on the hidden fees and price concessions - the patient is harmed, as are the businesses employing them,” stated Dr. Samy Metyas, CRA’s President. “Patients that delay treatment or go elsewhere (like a hospital) for care will experience longer waits, less oversight, and substantially higher out of pocket costs. Forcing patients to take on these added burdens, at a time like this, is shameful.” The letter to business advocacy organizations states in part: “…Delay or loss of medical treatment results in increased disease activity resulting in further increases in costs to patient health and welfare. Missed time from work, and lower productivity will cost employers immensely more than any savings promised by this policy change…. …As patient access to proper treatments is lost, it costs everyone more…” “As physicians on the front lines of medical care, we will fight for our patients,” Dr. Metyas continued. “As someone on the front lines protecting California businesses, surely these business-oriented organizations care for the wellbeing of its members too. Hopefully, we will join forces to educate employers and patients to avoid securing insurance policies that reduce access to care.” CRA sent a letter requesting a meeting last week to Anthem’s California Plan President, Beth Anderson that has so far, gone unanswered. “Doctors and patients are worried. From oncologists, to rheumatologists and ophthalmologists, – the dangers of this policy are very real,” said Dr. Metyas. “Anthem’s silence is creating more concern among patients, particularly now when a sense of security and stability is what people are seeking. It must reconsider.” The California Rheumatology Alliance is a specialty physician association comprised of rheumatologists from community practices and medical centers throughout the state. The majority of its members come from the Northern California Rheumatology Society (NCRS), the Southern California Rheumatology Society (SCRS) and the San Diego Rheumatology Society (SDRS). Membership has since expanded to include all those health professionals regularly engaged in the care of patients with rheumatic diseases. ### Please visit https://www.calrheum.org/ For more information, or to schedule an interview with a CRA spokesperson, please contact Dan Rene at 202-329-8357 or daniel.rene@kglobal.com Contact Details Dan Rene +1 202-329-8357 daniel.rene@kglobal.com Company Website https://www.calrheum.org/

Comodo Announces Sovaton as Distributor Partner for South African Cybersecurity Marketplace

Comodo

Comodo, the world’s leader of next-generation cybersecurity announced a partnership with Sovaton, a value-added distributor (VAD) with a sole focus on IT security solutions to protect and defend IT networks, data management and compliance. Together Comodo and Sovaton will bring Comodo’s entire range of cybersecurity solutions to the MSP ecosystem. “ Cybersecurity is continuously changing, and we are always looking at solutions in the market. We understand that the traditional break-fix reseller model won’t grow business and the transition to a Managed Service Provider (MSP) and selling managed services presents a great opportunity for Value Added Resellers (VARs) to build additional revenue streams and improve margins. It’s no longer an option for MSPs, VARS and other channel partners to sell cybersecurity, it’s important that those entering the cybersecurity space understand what a solid security stack should entail. It’s more than simply switching antivirus, a well-rounded security portfolio along with trust can build new capabilities to deliver managed services. Comodo delivers solutions that address a layered security approach,” said Lisa Rice, General Manager at Sovaton. Sovaton will offer Comodo’s Dragon platform with AEP, which is a complete cloud-native framework that delivers a zero-trust architecture to protect and defend endpoints. Its patent-pending auto containment technology has active breach protection that neutralizes ransomware, malware and cyber-attacks. The auto containment runs an unknown executable in a kernel API virtualized mode, thereby offering attack surface reduction (ASR) which neutralizes ransomware attacks. The Dragon Platform also utilizes a Default Deny security posture with Default Allow usability to provide a most comprehensive protection against zero-day threats, while having no impact on end-user experience or workflows. Lisa said, “The best thing about the Dragon platform is its ability to stop and roll back ransomware, coupled with guaranteed four-hour SOC turnaround on threat determination should AI methods not succeed. While no security vendor can guarantee to stop zero-day malware from entering an environment, Comodo’s approach in auto containment is the strongest we have come across yet.” In addition, Comodo’s Valkyrie analyzes and gives a trusted verdict for every file – no other company will analyze and give trusted verdict for 100% of files on a network. Comodo’s platform shares intelligence and is therefore more secure than disparate products that claim best of breed but don’t share information. Comodo has architected its cybersecurity product to maximize intelligent sharing between every component of the platform, therefore providing superior security. Lisa continued, “Offering the right cybersecurity solutions to our channel partners to stay ahead of cyberthreats is key to enabling MSPs and MSSPs to help the SMB market. Keeping abreast of market trends and evaluating solutions is part of our strategy. We looked at various managed detection and response (MDR) solutions, fully managed SOC services, security monitoring, and endpoint and email protection platforms. Comodo checks the boxes of the areas we want to handle. Plus, the onboarding process has given us peace of mind that we have selected a quality vendor.” Alan Knepfer, President and Chief Revenue Office at Comodo said, “Our partnership with Sovaton was born when they were in the process of rebranding, analyzing their product set, restructuring underperforming products, and nailing down specific drivers to move with market dynamics. Promoting Comodo’s solutions will help them attract new prospects and expand their network while driving the importance of cybersecurity.” About Sovaton Sovaton are a Value-Added Distributor (VAD) with a sole focus on IT security solutions to protect and defend IT networks, data management and compliance. Operating through a network of reseller partners, offering them a single point of expertise and assistance as they deliver solutions to improve the efficiency of modern business.

Citybiz Interview with Tony Gruebl, President of Think & Jeff Musgrove, MD of Executive Advisory and PE & Venture Support

Citybizlist

In this second interview citybiz asks Baltimore-based Think’s Tony Gruebl, the firm’s president and founder, and Jeff Musgrove, managing director of executive advisory and PE and venture support, to discuss the company’s recent acquisition of Ventrue and why it puts the company on the path to offering services nationwide. In September, Think purchased Ventrue LLC, a Naples, Fla.-based shared services company for an undisclosed price. As part of the transaction Think signed a partnership agreement with Naples Technology Ventures (NTV), a venture capital fund that invests in technology companies. Think will provide technology and advisory services to support NTV’s acquisitions. The Ventrue and NTV deal opens new markets for Think, primarily with private equity and venture capital firms. Musgrove says potential clients are disruptors operating in insurtech, fintech and healthtech. Through Ventrue, Think can plug into these companies and advise them along the business lifecycle in three primary areas: diligence, integration and optimization. “I have been a big believer that there is a gap to be filled by a firm like Think in that space as a trusted partner to the PE or VC firm who can go in and perform those critical functions for them,” Musgrove said. “So, they don’t need to build it. We have the expertise.” To hear more from Gruebl and Musgrove, click the below video. Citybizlist is a publisher of news and information about business, power, money, and people in 13 major U.S. city markets, including Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington, Charlotte/Raleigh, Atlanta, South Florida, Los Angeles, San Diego, Dallas and Houston.

Robotic Research Applauded in 2020 GovCon Awards for Both Contractor and Program of the Year

Robotic Research

Robotic Research LLC, a global leader in autonomy and localization technology for government and commercial customers, announced today they received multiple honors during the 18th Annual Greater Washington Government Contractor (GovCon) Awards, the Washington, D.C. region’s premier event honoring leaders in the government contracting community. The company’s financial and operational accomplishments were recognized with their award of Contractor of the Year, and their WarLoc™ product, a wearable localization device for GPS-denied environments, was announced as Program of the Year, an honor reserved for the most exemplary contracted program among all of the applicants. “We are deeply honored to be recognized by the Northern Virginia Chamber of Commerce and the Professional Services Counsel for our success in delivering autonomy and localization technologies that have helped transform defense and transportation operations around the world,” said Alberto Lacaze, president of Robotic Research. “It’s been an extremely busy and successful few years for us. We have expanded applications for our AutoDrive® autonomy kit with defense customers and have used its past performance to broaden our work in the commercial sector. We introduced new products like Pegasus™, our first-of-its-kind hybrid, transformable drone, to defense and commercial industries. Our WarLoc™ product, the evening’s Program of the Year, was successfully delivered to warfighters, even in the face of a pandemic. It takes an amazing team as well as the support of highly collaborative customers and partners to make this quantity and speed of innovation possible. We thank all of them for supporting our creative process, which has allowed us to solve critical challenges with new thinking and fresh approaches. I am proud of our employees for their endless support and commitment to our customers’ success. Congratulations to the Robotic Research team on this accomplishment.” WarLoc™ is a unique, GPS-denied localization device for dismounts, designed to increase the safety and security of warfighters and first responders. The mobile, boot-mounted device calculates a user’s position in GPS-denied locations, ensuring continued team visibility even within hostile and degraded environments challenged by GPS jamming and communications dropouts. WarLoc™ is powered by Robotic Research’s Prometheus AI, a collaborative system framework that dramatically improves accuracy and reliability of the full system by sharing and combining localization solutions on the edge. Prometheus AI is central to Robotic Research’s comprehensive autonomous vehicle solutions, all of which are helping U.S. military forces better coordinate safe and effective operations, helping to save soldiers’ lives in the most challenging environments. “Thank you so much for the award,” said Kyle Smith, Director of Advanced Technologies and WarLoc™ Project Manager at Robotic Research. “I’m humbled by the role we’re allowed to play in serving the country’s warfighters and first responders. It’s been amazing to see this technology mature over the past 14 years, and none of it would be possible without our extremely skilled team, from engineers to technicians, administrative staff to trainers – and everything in between. I’d also like to thank all of our government team members, with special gratitude to Armaments Center.” In 2019, Robotic Research received orders for 700 WarLoc™ units from the U.S. Army, which was the first commercialized order for product. The order marked a historic achievement in the long history and development of this innovative technology, which was born out of a Small Business Innovative Research contract with the U.S. Army’s Combat Capabilities Development Center Armaments Center in 2006. WarLoc™ has since been deployed to active troops in various U.S. and overseas locations. Founded in 2002, the Greater Washington Government Contractor Awards honors the leaders and legends of an industry that is vital to society and its citizens.
