Morgan Stanley Expansion Capital
Exclusive Financial Advisor
On June 21, 2022, KeyBanc Capital Markets (KBCM) successfully advised Platform.sh on its $140 million Series D Funding. KBCM served as Exclusive Financial Advisor on the transaction. The round was led by Munich-based Digital+ Partners, San Francisco-based Morgan Stanley Expansion Capital, and Paris-based Revaia, alongside existing investors BGV, Eurazeo, Hiinov, and Partech, all re-investing. The funds will allow Platform.sh to build on its leading position in Europe, the US and Asia, recruiting new employees worldwide to meet its expansion goals.
