New Charter Technologies, a portfolio company of Oval Partners, has acquired managed services provider (MSP) BNMC for an undisclosed amount. The deal will help New Charter enhance its managed IT services and solutions, according to the company. 

This is technology M&A deal number 120 that ChannelE2E and MSSP Alert have covered so far in 2024. See more than 2,000 technology M&A deals for 2024, 2023, 2022, 2021, and 2020 listed here.

New Charter Technologies, founded in 2018, is headquartered in Palo Alto, California. The company has 37 employees listed on LinkedIn. New Charter’s areas of expertise include IT support, managed IT services, IT consulting, cloud computing, cybersecurity, and IT outsourcing.

BNMC, founded in 1988, is headquartered in Woburn, Massachusetts, with an additional office in Nashua, New Hampshire. The company specializes in IT managed services, technical support, cybersecurity, virtualization, and cloud services.

New Charter recently appointed Peter Melby as its CEO, with company founder Mitch Morgan assuming the role of executive chairman. The leadership change was part of the company’s overall strategy to bolster its innovation and growth.

New Charter’s Unique Platform

Oval Partners and New Charter operate an equity partnership model, which sees the acquired companies’ leadership remain with the organization to help run and expand its operations.

The investment partnership has acquired more than 20 companies since 2020 and operates in 28 cities in the United States. Previous deals have included Complete Technology Solutions (CTS), Braver Technology, Olmec Systems, Greystone Technology, The Tech Group, Adnet, and Strategic Solutions

New Charter’s four founding MSPs, as announced in September 2020, were:

Despite the many M&A deals, none of them fit into the traditional “sell and exit” strategy for the MSP owners, as ChannelE2E has reported. Instead, Oval Partners invests in the companies and helps them scale, keeping the previous owners on hand to run and expand the company using lessons gleaned from their other businesses.

ChannelE2E is compiling a series on similar platform MSPs, most recently profiling The 20 MSP. We will have a profile on New Charter in the coming days.
