About New Charter
Oval Partners and New Charter operate an equity partnership model. The acquired companies’ existing leadership stays on to run and expand the organizations.
New Charter has now acquired and/or invested in more than 10 MSPs since 2020 — including Braver Technology, Olmec Systems, Greystone Technology, The Tech Group and Adnet. New Charter’s four founding MSPs, as announced in September 2020, were:
- ActiveCo Technology Management of Vancouver, British Columbia.
- Apex Technology Management of Redding, California.
- DCG Technical Solutions of Los Angeles, California.
- PennComp Outsourced IT of Houston, Texas.
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.
