With Nordic Capital as the new owner, the RegTech business will boost its leading market position and push ahead with its international expansion against the backdrop of regulatory harmonization. BearingPoint will continue to serve as a strategic consulting partner and will retain a minority stake in RegTech.

The current RegTech management team will remain and will work in close partnership with Nordic Capital. RegTech’s customers will not be impacted by the transaction. The closing of the transaction with Nordic Capital is subject to customary regulatory approvals. The financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed. The entire transaction has been managed by the M&A practice in BearingPoint’s Capital unit.

Kiumars Hamidian, Managing Partner with BearingPoint, said: "With the sale of our RegTech unit we accomplish the establishment of RegTech as a fully independent firm – a strategic initiative we had started two years ago. I said that 2020 is all about the execution of our Strategy 2025, and despite difficult market conditions because of Corona we stick to our long-term plans. Our current business performance is the best proof point that our strategy is paying off. With the transaction we are delivering on the ambitions lined out in our strategy: we intensify the focus on our market-leading consulting portfolio.

“The RegTech business unit will benefit from the increasing regulatory requirements around the world. As an independent firm, supported by a strong owner as Nordic Capital, it will have the necessary agility and flexibility to make the best possible use of these opportunities”, says Patrick Palmgren, Global Head of the BearingPoint Capital unit under which RegTech was managed so far. “I am personally looking forward to going on that journey together with Nordic Capital and RegTech”, Patrick Palmgren concludes.

Jürgen Lux, the CEO of RegTech, said: "We're delighted to welcome Nordic Capital to RegTech. The new ownership will support our further development and will also benefit our customers. With Nordic Capital we have a strong new partner at our side with extensive experience in developing and growing leading businesses in the software industry. We have used the past two years to enhance the autonomy of the RegTech business within the BearingPoint Group. Together with Nordic Capital, we have formed an ambitious growth agenda and will continue to invest in our proven, reliable and forward-looking software solution suite.”
