L Squared Exits its Second EdTech Investment in the Past Six Months – Following its Sale of Teaching Strategies, L Squared Sells its Interest in Edlio

Newport Beach, CA, October 23, 2018 – L Squared Capital Partners announced today that it has sold its ownership interests in Edlio to LLR Partners.  Headquartered in Los Angeles, CA, Edlio is a leading provider of cloud-based software and solutions to the K-12 market.

Edlio provides a best-in-class constituent engagement SaaS platform to create and manage Content Management Systems (CMS) for private, public, and charter schools.  The platform manages all aspects of a school’s digital presence and facilitates communication between administrators, teachers, parents, and students.

Under L Squared’s ownership, Edlio completed two strategic acquisitions, doubled recurring revenue, opened several offices in new markets, and invested in a state-of-the-art technology platform to create a more robust product portfolio. The Company also improved performance across multiple key metrics, including customer retention, average contract value, and gross margin.  Moreover, Edlio nearly doubled its workforce and grew to serve more than 9,700 schools across the U.S., Canada, and Latin America.

Adam Kimura, Principal at L Squared, added, “We are very pleased with the significant growth that Edlio has experienced over the last several years.  Edlio was an opportunity that aligned perfectly with L Squared’s core investment philosophy to invest in high growth companies with a strong value proposition, customer retention and a large market opportunity for organic and acquisitive growth.”
