RGI acquires 100% of the shares in Flexperto GmbH

The shareholders and founders of Flexperto GmbH have sold the company to RGI S.p.A. The founders remain as managing directors and have already reinvested in the parent company. Whereas Flexperto’s sales activities were solely focused on the German-speaking financial services market, with the sale to RGI, both companies seek to expand these activities to other markets and industries.

Flexperto is a web-based SaaS insure-tech platform for digital communication between companies and customers. The company rethinks the way sales-driven enterprises communicate with their customers in a digital world. The Sales Communication Cloud allows sales employees to interact with customers through all digital channels and collaboration tools from one place. Enterprises can increase their productivity, offer a unique customer experience and unify the complete customer dialogue. Since the seed funding in 2015 and two follow-up financing rounds in 2016 and 2017 with a total capital raised of US$4.8 million, Flexperto has become the leading software player for digital B2C communication in the German financial services market.

RGI, a portfolio company of Corsair Capital – a leading global investor in the financial services industry – is an independent software vendor, a European leader in the digital transformation of the insurance sector. Committed for more than 30 years, RGI has a wealth of experience in dealing with insurers, bank insurers, agents, brokers and independent financial advisors. With more than 1,100 professionals in Italy, France, Luxembourg, DACH, Slovenia, Ireland, Africa and the Middle East, RGI has a proven track record of successfully collaborating with more than 110 insurers and 300 brokers across the EMEA region, supporting them on their journey to excellence.

Besides the founders and private shareholders, Flexperto was also backed by three venture capital investors: Deutsche Telekom hub:raum Fund GmbH, the tech incubator from Deutsche Telekom; VC Fonds Technologie Berlin GmbH (IBB) a venture capital investor for growth companies in Berlin’s various technology and creative industries; and Berliner Volksbank Ventures Unternehmensbeteiligungsgesellschaft mbH, the Corporate Venture Capital Fund of the Berliner Volksbank.

Oaklins’ team in Germany supported the shareholders and founders of Flexperto as the exclusive M&A advisor. The team in the Netherlands supported the transaction. Through a focused sale process, RGI was found to be the best partner in terms of strategic fit and future development of the business.
