Silversmith Capital Partners Announces Sale of Digital Map Products to LightBox

BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Silversmith Capital Partners (“Silversmith”) is pleased to announce that
the previously announced acquisition of Digital Map Products (“DMP” or
the “Company”) by LightBox has closed.

Located in Irvine, California with over 160 employees, DMP is a leading
provider of location intelligence solutions for large enterprise and
government customers including Zillow, Google, Apple, CBRE and the State
of California. The Company’s vision of embedding location technology
into everyday workflows has allowed its over 350,000 users to make
informed decisions based on real-time geospatial intelligence. DMP joins
LightBox, a company whose objective is to provide real estate
professionals with greater transparency, efficiency and insight at every
decision point. DMP joins other LightBox acquisitions including EDR and
Real Capital Markets.

Silversmith led a management recapitalization of Digital Map Products in
August 2016, backing co-founders Jim Skurzynski and Geoff Wade to fuel
the next phase of DMP’s growth. During the partnership, the Company
executed on several strategic initiatives, including executive team
expansion, optimizing go-to-market strategy and outbound marketing, and
completing two tuck-in acquisitions, all while maintaining consistent,
profitable organic growth.

“The best thing I can say about Silversmith Capital Partners is they
care the most about the last word – ‘partners’’, said DMP co-founder and
CEO, Jim Skurzynski. “While the firm brought a lot to the table in terms
of their expertise in helping to grow software and data analytics
businesses, the most important thing they brought was being outstanding,
supportive partners throughout DMP’s journey. While we weren’t looking
to cut that journey short, we believe the opportunity to partner with
LightBox and continue to build our vision in the market was too hard to
pass up.”

“Our success is always derivative,” said Todd MacLean, Managing Partner
of Silversmith. “Our goal is to partner with talented, driven
entrepreneurs and then work tirelessly to support them however we can.
When we are lucky enough to reach milestones like this, the result is
almost always driven by having chosen our partners wisely. We are proud
to have worked with Jim, Geoff and their team over the past
two-and-a-half years in building DMP into a market leader and we wish
them success as part of LightBox.”

Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed. For more
