The heidelpay Group has a new investor: KKR, one of the leading New York-based investment companies, has acquired the majority stake of AnaCap Financial Partners in the German Fintech. Founder and CEO Mirko Hüllemann and other managers will remain shareholders of the heidelpay Group for the long term. The parties have agreed not to disclose any financial details of the transaction.
Only at the beginning of this year did the heidelpay Group acquire the Universum Group from Frankfurt as well as the PoS specialist Alpha Cash. This brings the total number of acquisitions to seven in two years. With the new investor, the payment company is now taking the next step in the growth phase and is pushing ahead with its internationalization with big steps.
Mirko Hüllemann, founder and CEO of the heidelpay Group says: "We are proud to have brought KKR on board as one of the world's leading investors. With Anacap we have achieved great success in an important phase and have increased tenfold in two years. Now we are taking the next step with KKR. I am convinced that we will be able to win even larger customers and further strengthen our position in the international payment landscape. I will continue to lead the heidelpay Group as CEO and partner and look forward to working with my team to drive the company forward with a new strong investor at our side".
