15th February 2023

FirstCapital is pleased to announce that it has advised ClassForKids the UK market leader for booking and management software for kids activity clubs, on its acquisition by The Access Group.

ClassForKids provides SaaS solutions for bookings, payments, and management of kids’ activity clubs, enabling operators to run their business successfully and to take them to the next level of growth.

FirstCapital provided ClassForKids with end-to-end deal execution and support, using its five stage SMART dealmaking approach.

Nikki Th’ng, founder of ClassForKids, said “FirstCapital added value to every stage of this process. They were insightful in their positioning of the business, brought all the right global parties to the table, expertly supported negotiations to deliver a win-win deal, and calmly and professionally managed the due diligence process all the way to close. They went the extra mile to support us, and were not only our trusted advisers, but also fun to work with. We could not have achieved such a great outcome without them.”

Jason Purcell, CEO of FirstCapital said “It was great to work with Nikki and the ClassForKids team on this transaction. ClassForKids has built a strong position in the market and we look forward to seeing the company continue to grow and flourish with the backing of Access.”
