PayPal计划22亿美元收购移动支付新秀iZettle

iZettle是一家来自瑞典的初创企业,主要为小型企业提供移动读卡器和其他支付工具。自2010年成立以来,该公司已经在欧洲和拉丁美洲的十几个国家累计了数十万的用户。

昨日,PayPal公司宣布拟出资22亿美收购iZettle,而这也是PayPal有史以来出价最高的一次收购。 该交易预计将于2018年第三季度结束,届时将“作为PayPal商业服务产品的组成部分”。iZettle CEO Jacob de Geer将继续领导业务,向PayPal的首席运营官Bill Ready汇报工作。 iZettle的管理团队将继续经营业务。

倘若收购成功,PayPal将有效扩充其国际业务范围,同时覆盖巴西、丹麦、芬兰、法国、德国、意大利、墨西哥、荷兰、挪威、西班牙和瑞典等11国市场,与Square形成有效竞争。此外,随着平台开始涉猎销售点工具,PayPal还计划借此推出传统的银行工具,例如面向无法使用金融服务的人的借记卡。

就在上周,iZettle刚刚宣布了公开上市计划,融资目标20亿瑞典克朗(约合2.3亿美元)。iZettle在2017年12月的估值为9.5亿美元,预计今年将产生约1.65亿美元的收入,平台总支付量突破60亿美元,预计2020年将实现盈利。

 

 

PayPal announced Thursday it plans to acquire iZettle, a Swedish firm that provides mobile card readers and other payment tools for small businesses. The payments giant will shell out $2.2 billion for iZettle, making it PayPal's biggest acquisition ever.

With iZettle's help, PayPal could expand its international footprint, and it could better compete against companies like Square for a spot in physical storefronts. Launched in 2010, iZettle has hundreds of thousands of customers in a dozen countries in Europe and Latin America. Once the deal closes, PayPal says it will gain in-store capabilities in the following 11 markets: Brazil, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Mexico, Netherlands, Norway, Spain and Sweden.

"Small businesses are the engine of the global economy and we are continuing to expand our platform to help them compete and win online, in-store and via mobile," PayPal President and CEO Dan Schulman said in a statement. "iZettle and PayPal are a strategic fit, with a shared mission, values and culture--and complementary product offerings and geographies."

As recently as last week, iZettle said it was going public with the intent of raising 2 billion Swedish krona ($230 million USD) in additional capital. Its last valuation in December came in at $950 million. iZettle expects to generate approximately $165 million in revenue this year, with approximately $6 billion of total payment volume (TPV) expected to be processed on its platform. The company expects to reach profitability by 2020 on a standalone basis.

The deal is expected to close in the third quarter of 2018, at which point will operate "as an integral part of PayPal's merchant services offering," PayPal said. iZettle CEO Jacob de Geer will continue to lead the business, reporting to PayPal's COO Bill Ready. iZettle's management team will continue running the business.

As it moves into offering point-of-sale tools, PayPal is also planning to roll out traditional banking tools like debit cards that are geared to people who don't have access to financial services.
