MSP CORP POWERS MSPs
Our mission is to be a world-class business partner for MSP owners across Canada and the USA. We partner with MSP owners looking to exit their businesses either immediately or over a set period of time. Our process ensures the preservation of the business, the employees and the legacy of our partners, alongside business continuity and enhancements for clients. We are 25 year technology veterans who are true operator-investors and the only non-private equity backed acquirer of MSPs in North America.
MSP Corp provides MSPs access to the technology platforms, automation, and support to improve their market position, while providing owners an opportunity to exit their businesses while preserving their legacy.
Our proprietary technology-driven solutions increase MSP efficiency, reliability for clients, and provide additional scope, scaling and protection for end users.

MSP Corp is the last privately held firm with no private equity capital and is 100% entrepreneur funded and controlled. We believe that your business should stay with operator-investors.

part in, several conferences and events across North America. Due to Covid-19 we are currently doing all meetings online via Teams/Zoom.
Frequently Asked Questions
There are a number of stages in the acquisition or partnering process.
It all starts with First Contact - an Introductory call to give us both a chance to discuss your company and ours, and how we might envision a future. We can answer questions about the process, and if we choose to move forward, MSP Corp will send over an NDA.
From there - we'll perform some evaluation, determine valuation, and draft a letter of intent. A period of due diligence will ensure that things look right before we complete the process!
Yes. We have been in the industry since the early 2000s and have built and sold multiple IT companies.
Absolutely. In fact, we prefer to work with business owners that seek to stay on board post-transaction and keep growing their businesses.
Yes. This is standard procedure in any M&A transaction. This is to protect the buyer’s investment. General term is 3-5 years.
We try and keep the information request to a minimum until we get to the offer stage. We do not need client names to submit an offer, but we do require information about client concentration (i.e. percentage of revenue that top clients represent). Once an offer is accepted, we need to conduct due diligence before the deal is finalized. This includes requesting invoices, bank statements, customer names, bills, etc.
We keep the process transparent to avoid you needing legal assistance during the initial stages. However, once an offer is received, it is recommended you seek legal advice to validate a strong offer.
The payout structure typically involves 50–60% paid upfront, with a percentage held back over a three-year period. This allows MSP Corp to pay maximum value for your business. Full payouts are available upfront, but this will significantly lower your valuation.
