Strategic combination between Nexi and Nets creates a powerful European PayTech leader

The merger between Nets and Nexi is completed combining the two companies and creating a leading European Paytech

​​ 

 

The all-share merger between Nets and Nexi has come into effect from 1 July 2021. This creates a powerful Paytech leader providing Nexi Group with greater exposure to attractive fast-growing and underpenetrated regions of Europe. Hence, the combined group is well positioned to capture further organic and inorganic growth opportunities. This is underpinned by the addressable market size and favourable industry dynamics such as the accelerated shift towards digital payments across Europe and increased demand for a full-service payment provider.


The combination of Nexi and Nets is an important next step on the journey to realise the vision of forming a leading European player in the digital payments landscape. The scale, technology, capabilities and product portfolio will serve as a “one-stop shop” to a wide range of customers. This will be further enhanced by the planned acquisition of SIA, an Italian and European leader in payment technology and infrastructure services.​

 

 

 

Pan-European leader


Together, leveraging a strong complementary presence across Europe, we want to shape the way people pay and businesses accept payments, by offering the most innovative and reliable solutions.​ 

​ 

 

 

 

"One-stop-shop"


Combining our capabilities and product portfolios will enable us to establish a European digital payments Powerhouse and deliver a broader product offering both domestically and cross-border. ​ 

 

 

 

 

Innovation


          Together, we will leverage our unparalleled scale and technologies to capture the significant market opportunity that exists with the ongoing shift from cash to card payments.

 

Growth story​​

The Nordic expansion (2014 – 2016)

Nets was acquired by Advent International, Bain Capital and ATP in July 2014 from the Danish and Norwegian bank owners. Under private equity ownership Nets transformed into a cost-effective, market-oriented regional payments provider, quickly expanding in the Nordics organically and through selective M&A.

Listed at Copenhagen Stock Exchange (2016 – 2018)

In September 2016 the company listed on the Copenhagen Stock Exchange and continued its growth journey becoming a leading Nordic payments provider. After one and a half years Nets was taken private by a consortium led by Hellman & Friedman.

The European journey (2018 – 2020)

Under Hellman & Friedman's ownership, Nets has undergone significant transformation and investments resulting in accelerated growth of its core business, both organically and through strategic M&A. This has expanded Nets' footprint into fast-growing payments areas like Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and Poland. The commercial focus has been on merchant services, establishing a strong eCommerce exposure and proposition, issuing processing and developing innovative digital payment products.​

Nets joins forces with Nexi to create an advanced and innovative European PayTech leader.
