InfoCert’s international expansion go faster and the Company aims to become the European Digital Trust Champion.
On October 27th 2021, Tinexta S.p.A. announced the signing of a binding agreement for the entry of Bregal Milestone into the share capital of InfoCert, with a minority stake.
Bregal Milestone is a European private equity fund managing more than €1.1 billion invested in technology sector. Bregal Milestone is part of Bregal Investments, a global group that has invested more than €15 billion since 2002 and currently has more than €12 billion in assets under management.
This operation will allow InfoCert to accelerate its ambitious international growth and development plan, which started in 2018 with the acquisition of Camerfirma and continued, more recently, with the acquisition of CertEurope and the investment in Authada. The support of a global partner such as Bregal Milestone, which has a specific know-how in the technology sector and an extensive network in Europe, will foster seizing the opportunities arising from the consolidation process of the Digital Trust.
The transaction involves an investment by Bregal Milestone of 100 million euros for the subscription of a dedicated capital increase up to a total share of 16.09% of InfoCert’s equity.
Combined with the acquisition of CertEurope, the investment of Bregal Milestone allows InfoCert to consolidate its role as a leader in the Digital Trust sector in Europe and at the same time to be able to offer to all its customers, especially in Italy, the best of the solutions and experience gained in over 20 countries.
