About Sverica

It was not immediately clear whether Sverica’s investment involved a majority stake in WinWire or not, but the PE firm has made a number of investments in the sector.

Past transactions have included a majority investment in Cytracom, a provider of Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) sold through MSPs; and Synoptek — a Top 100 Vertical Market MSP.

Sverica acquires, invests in, and actively builds companies that are, or could become, leaders in their industries, according to the firm.
