Advising Cognism Limited on Kaspr acquisition

We have advised Cognism Limited ("Cognism") on its acquisition of the entire issued share capital of Kaspr SAS, a Paris-based sales prospecting provider which is focused on providing easy access to prospecting data. 

Cognism is a leader in premium sales intelligence, setting a new standard for data quality and compliance, trusted by 1000+ revenue teams worldwide. Cognism works to provide transformative solutions to help revenue teams drive predictable lead generation and improve conversions across all engagements.

Kaspr was founded by Allan Benguigui (CEO) and Omar Ghorbel (CTO) four years ago with a vision to fill a gap in the market for prospecting data in the French marketplace. Since then, the business has grown quickly and today has around 1,500 customers and 50,000 users. 

Commenting on the acquisition, Corporate Partner Mark Barron, said: "This is an incredibly exciting step for the Cognism team. This acquisition provides Cognism with greater access to the French market which will rapidly expand its own database."

James Isilay, CEO of Cognism added: "This deal further cements Cognism’s position as a leader in GDPR compliant contact data for EMEA. We’re looking forward to Kaspr becoming a part of Cognism, and we’re working with the Kaspr team to plan and coordinate all go-to-market activities." 

A team led by Partner Gilles Amsallem involved teams in the UK and France. The UK team was led by Partner Mark Barron and Senior Counsel Paul Thorpe. The French advice was provided by Partners Gilles Amsallem and Marc Schuler, Counsel Gwendal Chatain and Dalila Mabrouki-Jacques, Senior Associates Julie Filliard and Inès Tribouillet, and Associates Adrien Ahmadi Kermanshahani and Laura Huck.
