Goldenhill International M&A Advisors today announced that it acted as exclusive M&A advisor to Urgentem, a provider of global corporate emissions and climate transition data. Urgentem’s data and analytics will enable ICE to quickly expand its climate risk offering to include extended coverage of global public and private companies across new geographies, scenario risk analysis and stress testing for fund managers and banks.
Urgentem provides Scope 1, 2 and 3 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions data, analytics and tools for over 30,000 publicly-listed and privately-held securities. Its data will be used to enhance ICE’s growing global sustainable finance offering, which includes a corporate ESG database of over 10,000 companies, U.S. municipal bond and MBS climate risk services, a suite of global corporate climate indices and the world’s leading environmental marketplace where an estimated $1 trillion in notional value equivalent of carbon allowances traded in 2021, equal to over half the world’s estimated total annual energy-related emissions footprint.
Commenting on the value of Goldenhill’s contribution to the successful process, Urgentem’s CEO Girish Narula said:
“We chose to work with Goldenhill due to their sell-side experience and previous transactions in the ESG data and analytics sector.
We worked directly with the Partners from start to finish, who always remained welcoming and continuously available to support our needs and lead the entire process. Their expertise and commitment allowed us to find a terrific partner in ICE and resulted in the successful deal for Urgentem. Thank you to Goldenhill!”
