Nuvei offers payment acceptance solutions, smooth payouts, foreign exchange services, local acquiring, risk management, and value-added business services
Canadian payment processing firm Nuvei has closed a $270m common equity financing, to further strengthen its organic growth plans and acquisitions.
The financing round was led by the company’s existing shareholders, including private equity firm Novacap, along with some of its primary partners, and Canadian institutional investor Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec (CDPQ).
The latest funding round values the company at $2bn.
CDPQ Québec private equity and strategic planning executive vice-president Charles Émond said: “Our partnership continues ahead to support the global expansion of a leading Quebec tech firm.
“Since this initial investment, CDPQ and its partners are proud to have sustained Nuvei’s growth, especially through the transformational acquisition of SafeCharge, and to have supported the emergence of a world-class, global player in its field.”
