This week, Worldpay, a global payments technology company based in London, announced that it had entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Austin-based SecureNet, a market leader in multi-channel commerce technology. The acquisition price was undisclosed. The transaction is expected to close in December 2014, pending regulatory approval. SecureNet serves more than 17,000 merchants, with processing volumes exceeding $19 billion annually and is principally owned by Chicago-based Sterling Partners.  SecureNet’s merchant count and dollar volumes likely include clients served via card processing, ACH, and its virtual terminal services and products.
Meanwhile, Worldpay is expected to process a total of nearly 10 billion transactions with a value of nearly half a trillion dollars in 2014. Worldpay is owned by private equity firms Advent International and Bain Capital. The acquisition of SecureNet by Worldpay was executed in order to leverage the company’s merchant cloud-based solutions which integrate point-of-sale (POS), mobile and eCommerce payment processing into Worldpay’s direct acquirer ecosystem, providing a distribution advantage. SecureNet’s multi-channel inventory management system will also enable Worldpay to offer the ability to provide actionable, SKU-level data insights to clients to help them grow their business.
