It was a pleasure working with the Xirgo and HKW teams on this transaction, and we are excited to have found a partner that shares in management’s strategic vision for the business.”

“This transaction highlights the interest from corporate buyers in sectors such as industrial connectivity and data analytics, which offer significant growth potential and are early in the adoption curve,” Logue said. “Xirgo represents another marquee transaction for Harris Williams in the industrial technology sector, and we are thrilled to have advised the company and HKW.”
