CrowdOut Capital LLC, an Austin-based investment firm, and CO Long Term Equity Fund I LP have acquired Sourceability, a global distributor of electronic components, from Zollner Elektronik AG.

KPMG Law provided comprehensive legal advice on the structuring of the transaction and the transfer of companies in Germany, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Singapore and India.

The law firm Whitman Breed Abbott & Morgan advised on all U.S. legal issues.

Sourceability is a global distributor of electronic components and has developed its own e-commerce marketplace, providing professional buyers and engineers with access to an extensive parts range with global logistics support. The company’s global distribution centers in Singapore, Hong Kong and Miami are supported by regional offices.

Tax advice and structuring for Zollner AG was provided by a team from KPMG AG Wirtschaftsprüfungsgesellschaft (KPMG) with cross-border teams from the global KPMG organization.
