PayPal宣布正式完成对支付创企iZettle的收购

iZettle是一家金融科技创企,帮助小企业接受银行卡支付。

此前,该公司曾计划在瑞典上市,融资目标1.68亿英镑。然而就在今年5月,iZettle宣布撤回上市申请,接受支付巨头PayPal公司的收购邀约。

PayPal给出的收购价格是22亿美元,也创下了该行业的又一价格新高。

PayPal表示,希望通过本次收购扩大其在小企业市场的市场份额。

随后,英国竞争与市场管理局(后文简称CMA)对这笔交易进行了审查,并得到了PayPal方面的有力支持和配合,在此期间,两家企业仍然保持独立实体状态。

近日,PayPal公司宣布,这笔总额22亿美元的大额交易已经通过审查,PayPal对iZettle的收购正式完成。

 

 

The UK's competition regulator has called in Paypal's $2.2bn (£1.7bn) acquisition of Swedish payments firm iZettle on the day it completes.

The Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) will investigate whether the merger would lessen competition between payment platforms in the UK, with the firms remaining separate until the CMA concludes its probe.

Nevertheless, Paypal said the acquisition would help it expand its business services to include smaller firms.

Bill Ready, chief operating officer, said: "We're thrilled to welcome the iZettle team to the PayPal family and are excited to expand the ways we serve our small business customers.

"iZettle brings a suite of products and services that allows merchants to meet their customers where they are - online, in store or via mobile. This is another step in our journey toward democratising commerce tools to help businesses of all sizes thrive."

The firm, which allows small businesses to take card payments, had planned to IPO in Sweden to raise £168m, but three weeks after its May announcement Paypal pounced.

Co-founder Jacob de Geer will continue to lead iZettle at the online payments giant, reporting into Ready.

However, that won’t happen until the CMA completes its investigation and finds nothing wrong with the merger - it stipulates that “no changes are made to key staff” until the probe is over, while the firms must remain separate entities.

"Today is a very big day - for me and for everyone at iZettle," de Geer said. "We share PayPal's strong belief in the power of small businesses. Together, we will be stronger and move even faster to help small businesses succeed in a world of giants."
