Eversheds Sutherland have advised Livingbridge on its investment in Visualsoft, a market-leading eCommerce platform provider.

Visualsoft provides SMEs with an industry-leading end-to-end eCommerce solution alongside a range of wrap-around digital marketing services. Their growth has been accelerated by COVID-19 as retailers sought new ways to improve their own platforms and capitalise on the increased shift to online spending.

The investment was made through Livingbridge’s Enterprise 3 fund and builds on previous investments in the technology sector, including TitanHQ, which completed earlier this year.

The Eversheds Sutherland team was led by Corporate Partner Lizzy Tindall with support from Corporate Associates Ruary Smith and Sam Jones. Further support was also provided by Banking and Finance Partner Ben Tumelty, Senior Associate Catherine Jones, Commercial Partner Phil James and Employment Senior Associate Gemma Rusling.

Mark Advani at Livingbridge, said: “Visualsoft provides a functionally rich, high service e-commerce platform solution to its customers. It is ideally positioned to capitalise on the accelerated shift to online retail and the rise in independent retailers and progressive brands. We are excited by the prospect of working closely with Dean Benson and the management team to help Visualsoft serve more brands and retailers – both directly and through its expanding network of channel partners. The transaction was completed in a short timeframe and we are grateful to Lizzy and the Eversheds Sutherland team for their assistance and advice.”

Lizzy Tindall said: “We are delighted to have helped Livingbridge to complete this latest investment. The Eversheds Sutherland team worked tirelessly in the context of a challenging timetable and we now look forward to continuing to support Livingbridge on its journey with Visualsoft.”
