“This acquisition is recognition of the success of Sterling’s employees and leadership team in growing our company to become the leading European provider of virtual data room solutions,” said CEO Keating, who has led the company both before and after its separation from Sterling Financial Print.

“Being part of a much larger, successful global enterprise will provide increased growth opportunities for our business and employees as well as access to new markets. For our customers and users, Sterling will continue to deliver the same premium virtual data room solutions and service excellence they expect from us.”

Sterling has helped users from over 187 countries and 90 industries successfully complete thousands of deals for the M&A, corporate development, real estate, capital markets, private capital, banking and legal communities.

It has offices in seven major European financial centres.

TransPerfect president and CEO Phil Shawe stated: “We have admired Sterling’s strong reputation and leadership position in Europe. 

“It is exciting to have them as part of our global team, and I have no doubt we will achieve great things for our clients. We welcome everyone at Sterling to the TransPerfect family.”
