StatPro completes First Closing of UBS Delta acquisition
StatPro Group plc (AIM:SOG, “StatPro”, “the Group”), the AIM listed provider of cloud-based portfolio analysis and asset pricing services for the global asset management industry, has completed on 15 May 2017, the First Closing of the acquisition, from UBS, of its risk and performance analytics service, UBS Delta, as announced on 7 April 2017.
An initial payment of €8.7 million has been made, out of total cash consideration of approximately €13 million, which will be paid over three years.
UBS Delta will enable StatPro to extend its risk and performance analytics service from the middle office to the front office of asset managers.
The acquisition is phased over three to five years as StatPro incorporates UBS Delta’s cloud-based functionality into its flagship product, StatPro Revolution.
Throughout the transition, and until StatPro has fully integrated UBS Delta’s functionality, UBS will continue to operate and support UBS Delta for its clients.
UBS Delta has ARR of approximately £14.5 million and adjusted EBITDA is expected to be £2.0 million to £2.5 million in the first 12 months.
Justin Wheatley, StatPro CEO, commented:
“At this early stage we are delighted by the collaboration and enthusiasm of the Delta team. They are now working very closely with us, under our umbrella, to ensure the continuity and stability of their exceptional service to our combined clients.
“This earnings enhancing acquisition transforms our scale and capabilities and we look forward to developing the enlarged business faster and, through our operational gearing, improve our profitability.”
