Successful Management Buy-Out Enables ValidSoft to Embark on Growth Strategy
ValidSoft is delighted to announce the successful completion of its Q4-2016 management buy-out (MBO) that places the business under the new private ownership of VSFT Holdings Inc., (VSFT). This MBO, and the resultant corporate reorganization, led by Founder and Executive Chairman, Patrick M. Carroll, sees the company divested from Pareteum Corporation (NYSE American: TEUM) and marks a major turning point for ValidSoft, giving the company full autonomy and the key resources needed to deliver on its strategy and drive growth globally.
VSFT brings together a number of key individuals from the financial services and technology industries, providing a strong combination of expertise and resources that will provide strong foundations for the success of ValidSoft. As part of the MBO, VSFT have also agreed a significant strategic partnership with previous owners Pareteum, to continue to collaborate on a number of joint opportunities where ValidSoft’s voice biometric technology will provide Pareteum’s own technology with a competitive advantage.
Pat Carroll, Founder and Executive Chairman of ValidSoft said: “This marks a very significant step in the future of ValidSoft. Crucially it enables us to control our own destiny, and provides us the investment and resources necessary to deliver on our strategy and anticipated commercial success. We believe we now have the team and resources in place to take advantage of the major opportunities that we have available to us, moving beyond simply mobility markets.”
This deal marks a significant shift in the commercial strategy of ValidSoft, as the business looks to scale rapidly, across a range of geographies, utilising strategic channel partners. Further announcements will be made in the coming months as these strategic partnerships are finalised and the go-to-market strategy is executed.
