MARKHAM, Ontario, June 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Tequity Inc., a North American M&A advisory firm specializing in strategic Technology M&A transactions, acted as the exclusive financial advisor to Toronto-based Non-Linear Creations Inc., a multi-national digital services company with offices in Canada, Brazil, and the United Kingdom, in their strategic sale to Valtech, a leading digital agency focused on business transformation.

Non-Linear Creations, a digital pioneer founded by Shannon Ryan and Randy Woods, builds and delivers world-class digital services that drive business results.

This acquisition supports Valtech's growth in its North American operations as well as its continued global expansion.

"Nonlinear brings to the table two decades of global digital services knowledge and skill, resulting in an impressive roster of client relationships across multiple verticals, including Bayer, Sam's Club, Brookfield and Sun Life Financial among a few," said Olivier Padiou, Global Chief Operating Officer, Valtech. "We are very excited about the synergies that will result from this union. Non-Linear's deep knowledge with the Sitecore platform, and its marketing services offering combined with their understanding of the internal needs of global companies, will support the expansion of our business transformation capabilities in years to come."

Nonlinear CEO, Shannon Ryan, commented on the acquisition, "It was important for us that the company we joined shared our deep customer focus. Valtech's leadership and approach for creating outstanding customer experiences echoed perfectly Non-Linear's long standing vision of using digital technology to drive ROI for our clients. Additionally, it was important to join a company with similar values and an entrepreneurial outlook. Valtech's executive team and its unique and global culture immediately resonated with our team."
