Spurrier Capital Partners is pleased to announce our role as sole strategic advisor to K2 in its sale to Nintex, a portfolio company of Thoma Bravo, TA Associates and Updata Partners. K2 enables organizations to build powerful applications that automate complex business processes to improve employee production and efficiency using a simple drag-and-drop interface with minimal coding. Based in Bellevue, WA, K2 is backed by Francisco Partners, FTV Partners, and Azure Capital Partners.

The compelling combination of Nintex’s strength among business users seeking low-code solutions with K2’s proven track record for professional developers pursuing mission-critical Digital Process Automation initiatives represents an exciting combination of leading innovators in the Process Automation market. The parties’ complementary features will benefit both customer bases, with Nintex customers now able to take advantage of K2’s SmartObjects integration capabilities, and K2 customers now having access to Nintex’s Process Mapping, Robotic Process Automation, Document Generation, and more.

“The team at Spurrier Capital Partners was an integral part of this process and has enthusiastically supported our business across numerous strategic initiatives,” stated Evan Ellis, CEO of K2. “Their deep understanding of K2’s value proposition and strategic roadmap, as well as the Low-Code / Process Automation market, enabled them to find a strategic partner who shares our vision for the future.”

“SCP’s deep domain expertise, strong buyer knowledge, and excellent execution capabilities were crucial in achieving a successful outcome,” said Brian Decker, Partner at Francisco Partners.  “SCP led a highly curated and focused process, facilitating this partnership between K2 and Nintex to provide enhanced value to customers.”
