REPAY, a leading provider of vertically integrated payment solutions, has announced it has entered into a commercial partnership agreement with Veem to expand each party’s B2B payment capabilities.
With the agreement, REPAY will expand its ability to deliver cross-border payment options, and Veem will broaden its capabilities by leveraging REPAY’s core B2B virtual card and acquiring technology.
In addition to the commercial relationship between REPAY and Veem, REPAY has made a minority equity investment in Veem to provide additional support for Veem’s go-forward growth. The investment was financed with cash on hand and pro forma net leverage is expected to remain at the current level of approximately 2.8x.
“This mutually beneficial commercial agreement and investment strengthens our relationship with a strategic and long term B2B partner,” said Darin Horrocks, EVP of REPAY’s B2B business. “We are excited to partner with the Veem team to offer our clients a more robust B2B offering, with the help of Veem’s cross-border technology. This should help us unlock more of the massive global B2B payments market, which is estimated at approximately $125 trillion today and anticipated to grow to $200 trillion over the next decade. Additionally, REPAY will enhance Veem’s offering by providing Veem customers with access to REPAY’s issuing technology and virtual payment capabilities. With our companies now strategically aligned, we expect this to be the beginning of a long and successful partnership.”
“This partnership with REPAY will empower business users to conduct globalized business transactions with ease and convenience,” said Bimal Shah, Head of Corporate Development for Veem. “Merchants today demand fast, reliable and secure payments. To meet these needs, we’re excited to join forces and give REPAY users access to our digital payment offerings. The digital payments revolution is in full swing and we are thrilled to complement our existing transnational technology products with REPAY.”
