Raiz Invest Signs Agreement to Acquire Superestate
Aura Ventures is extremely pleased to announce that Superestate has signed an agreement to be acquired by Raiz Invest (ASX:RZI).
Aura Ventures is extremely pleased to announce that Superestate has signed an agreement to be acquired by Raiz Invest (ASX:RZI), Australia’s largest mobile-first financial services platform, through the issuance of 5.3m Raiz shares, valuing Superestate at A$9.5m.
We are supportive of the transaction as it gives us exposure to a number of high-growth Asian markets and mitigates the risk that the ATO will continue to leave SuperMatch turned off.
Raiz experienced strong growth through the Mar’21 quarter, with record results for Active Customers and Funds Under Management (“FUM”) growing 22.1% and 14.6% to A$419.6k and A$694.3m respectively. At its current run rate, Raiz is on target to have A$1.0Bn in Funds Under Management by the end of this calendar year. The acquisition provides mutual benefits allowing the merged entity to increase scale, further asset diversification and operational and growth synergies, all of which will allow the combined group to grow at a faster pace.
Completion of the acquisition is subject to conditions including satisfactory completion of Raiz’s due diligence, the continuation of certain material contracts, escrow agreements in place, transfer of key employees and Superestate being debt free. Completion is expected in late May 2021 or early June 2021.
