Adam Dowdney said of the transaction:

We were delighted to be able to work with the team at Volume on this strategically important transaction for the Group.  QBox is a fantastic product and we look forward to following its further development within Cyara’s ownership.  The transaction which involved an initial hive down of the QBox business, had a number of complexities and the strength and depth of the IBB team enabled us to find solutions and a clear path to a successful completion for all involved. We wish QBox every success in the future and look forward to continuing to work with Chris and the Volume team.

Chris Sykes, CEO of Volume commented:

I’m delighted we had IBB by our side throughout this transaction. Acquisitions can be complex, and with a significant time difference between seller and acquirer, you need flexibility and a ‘can do’ attitude, particularly towards the end of the process. The IBB team went above and beyond. I’d like to thank Adam, his fellow partners and team for their tenacity, professionalism, and occasional bad jokes.
