The combination of the two companies follows a clear strategic rationale as the companies fit perfectly together and complement each other ideally with their solution portfolios. RegTech and Vizor have a strong track record within the regulatory and supervisory technology space. Furthermore, the two companies serve complimentary geographies. While RegTech can rely on a strong customer base in Germany, Austria and Switzerland and a growing presence in adjacent geographies such as Benelux, Ireland, the Nordics, and the UK, Vizor’s customers are primarily based in Africa, Asia, Australia, Canada, and Middle East.
As part of one group, RegTech and Vizor are well positioned for further growth. The group will provide innovative regulatory, risk, and supervisory technology solutions to all stakeholders across the regulatory value chain. The combined organization will maximize synergies in product development and innovation to create even more value for their customers.
Together, RegTech and Vizor serve more than 7,000 firms including banks, insurance companies, and financial services providers with reporting solutions. At the same time, they enable more than 50 regulators and tax authorities to collect and analyze data from 34,000 firms in 60 countries.
Jürgen Lux, CEO of BearingPoint RegTech, states: “The deal with Vizor is an important milestone in RegTech's development. It demonstrates that we are growing strongly as a stand-alone company since Nordic Capital came onboard as our new owner late last year. Both Vizor and RegTech have over 20 years of history, are market leaders with our RegTech and SupTech solutions, and complement each other perfectly in terms of products, markets, and customers. As a combined company, we will develop a strategy for further, sustainable growth to fulfill our shared mission: to contribute to the transparency and stability of the financial markets with our solutions.”
Conor Crowley, CEO at Vizor Software, comments: “Since we founded Vizor over 20 years ago, we have made the company a renowned technology provider for central banks, regulators and tax authorities around the world. Vizor’s decision to join forces with RegTech is crucial for the further development and international growth of our company. We look forward to opening a new chapter together with RegTech not only in the history of our company, but also in the field of RegTech and SupTech.”
Emer FitzPatrick, Country Lead Ireland at BearingPoint RegTech, adds: “As Country Lead Ireland, I am particularly excited about the combination of RegTech and Vizor. Our Irish team will now not only be part of a large international RegTech provider, but also part of a larger organization in Ireland. We look forward to working with the management and entire team at Vizor, with whom we share not only a very similar vision and mission, but also cultural values.”
The current management team at Vizor will remain and work in close partnership with RegTech. The sellers were advised by Novacies Capital (M&A) and Eversheds Sutherland (Legal).
The transaction is subject to customary regulatory approvals. The parties involved have agreed not to disclose further details of the transaction.
