Equiteq advised 4C on its sale to Wipro. Other parties involved included Baker & Mackenzie, BDO, DLA Piper, and CVBA/SCRL. 

Equiteq also featured in the same category in 2021. The firm advised Kartesia as part of the acquisition of Global Sales Training Inc (Richardson), by Sales Performance International – which also won M&A Deal of the Year worth between $50 million and $100 million.
