The Silicon Forest is used to big exits however in the lasted decade it has recorded very few exits, and one of them is the acquisition of Saber Corps. Saber Corps was founded by Merger Tech Owner and CEO Nitin Khanna way back in 2009. The Portland-based company had been contracted by the US government to provide some of the government services to the members of the public. The state government services include vehicle registration, issuance of driver licenses and registration of those that are unemployed among others as detailed here.
Saber Corps first acquisition took place in the year 2007 when EDS purchased the firm at a tune of 420 million dollars. Nitin Khanna after the firm’s acquisition continued serving as the firm CEO. Saber Corp a year later was naturally absorbed by HP Company after it acquired EDS. After the purchase of EDS by HP, Nitin Khanna opted to leave the firm and pursue other entrepreneur interests.
Nitin Khanna, an entrepreneur at heart, established another firm together with his brother known as MergerTech. MergerTech is an investment bank that is headquartered in California. The firm focuses on providing capital and offering buyout deals to early-stage firms including small businesses that are worth less than 100 million dollars. Nitin Khanna will serve as the firm’s CEO and will run the business while in Portland. Nitin Khanna’s brother will serve as Merger Tech COO and will be the one carrying out the business operations in California.
Nitin Khanna is optimistic that the new investment will have a substantial market for its services. The niche that Merger Tech chose is free from completion from big investment banks that targets big businesses. According to Nitin Khanna, Merger Tech considers three factors when selecting potential clients. One of the things that they look out for is businesses that are in distress and are seeking for a fast buyout deals to salvage investors equity. The second category of business that Merger Tech deals with is those companies that are growing and are look for investors. Lastly, Merger Tech looks for mature startups that want to exit.
