Investment to Accelerate Product Development and Fund International Expansion
LAKE ZURICH, IL, October 24, 2017 – GTreasury, a leading provider of Treasury Management Systems (TMS), today announced a $42 million investment from Mainsail Partners, a growth equity firm that exclusively invests in profitable, fast-growing technology companies. GTreasury will use the new capital and Mainsail’s extensive resources to accelerate product development, expand internationally, and enhance GTreasury’s customer service.
GTreasury was co-founded over thirty-one years ago by Orazio Pater, CEO, and his wife Peg, General Manager, and offers the longest tenured and holistically developed TMS in the industry. The company’s software suite includes its industry-leading Cash Management and Funds Transfer solutions which provide essential insights, automation, and tools to help large enterprises manage global liquidity. The company also offers Accounting, Banking, and Financial Instruments solutions to help treasury departments automate accounting procedures, manage banking relationships, analyze bank fees, and manage investment and debt activity. To facilitate these services, the company has direct connections with over 2,000 banks globally, and integrations with hundreds of ERP and 3rd party systems.
“We built our company by creating mission-critical products and providing top tier service to our customers and partners,” said Mr. Pater. “This partnership with Mainsail will allow us to double down on those efforts by accelerating innovation and delivering even greater value to treasury departments,” added Pater. “We chose Mainsail for their experience scaling technology companies and because they share our vision for building a global business with a focused mission – build powerful software that provides greater visibility and control for corporate treasuries while never outgrowing the intimate client service experience that is necessary for companies to maximize value. In Mainsail we were looking not just for additional financial resources, but also for a true long-term partnership.”
“We see an opportunity to take an even greater leadership role in the market through innovation and expansion of our products and services,” adds Ashley Pater, Senior Vice President of Product Marketing. “Our goal is to stay one step ahead of the needs of our clients and this investment will help us achieve that goal.”
Vinay Kashyap, Principal at Mainsail Partners, said, “Due to a number of factors, the role of the treasury department at enterprise corporations has become increasingly difficult and more important than ever. Rapid globalization, economic volatility and changing regulations have added complexity for Treasurers, putting more pressure on their organizations” added Kashyap. “The GTreasury team has built a suite of products that reduce the complexity and workload for treasury departments and allows them to focus on more strategic priorities. Combined with a deep set of best practices and intellectual property from over 31 years in this business, the consultative and high-touch approach to their clients is second to none. We are excited to invest behind this high-quality management team and a company that is so well positioned in this rapidly evolving market.”
In connection with the growth equity investment from Mainsail, GTreasury recently announced the opening of its first international office, in London, to support global expansion and its existing multinational customer base.
