Munich — In March 2021, funds advi­sed by Bregal Unter­neh­mer­ka­pi­tal (BU) were able to conclude agree­ments to acquire a majo­rity stake in ACTICO, a leading inter­na­tio­nal provi­der of soft­ware for intel­li­gent process auto­ma­tion and digi­tal decision-making. ACTICO’s manage­ment and share­hol­ders will retain a signi­fi­cant equity stake in the company. McDer­mott Will & Emery provi­ded legal advice to the share­hol­ders of ACTICO on the sale to Bregal Unternehmerkapital.

ACTICO is a leading RegTech soft­ware provi­der offe­ring intel­li­gent decision auto­ma­tion, espe­cially for the banking and finan­cial services indus­try. The company sells its solu­ti­ons to custo­mers in over 25 coun­tries world­wide. ACTICO was crea­ted in 2015 through a carve-out from the Bosch Group and today employs around 140 people at its head­quar­ters in Immen­staad on Lake Constance and other bran­ches in the USA and Singapore.

The soft­ware plat­form is used in parti­cu­lar in the areas of risk manage­ment, regu­la­tory and compli­ance, fraud protec­tion, custo­mer loyalty and process opti­miz­a­tion. In parti­cu­lar, ACTICO excels in proces­sing large amounts of data and in deve­lo­ping reli­able, robust and easily scala­ble applications.

Bregal Unter­neh­mer­ka­pi­tal invests in medium-sized compa­nies in a wide range of indus­tries in Germany, Austria, Switz­er­land and Nort­hern Italy. The focus is on market leaders and “hidden cham­pions” with strong manage­ment teams and growth potential.
