Flexiti, a leading provider of Point-Of-Sale (POS) financing and payment technology, today announced the acquisition of TD Financing Services’ (TDFS) Canadian private label credit card portfolio valued at approximately $250 million.
This is a significant transaction in the consumer lending space, making Flexiti a leading private label credit card issuer in the country. The acquisition includes an equity investment of over $50 million led by Globalive Capital, giving them a controlling position in Flexiti. A founding investor, Globalive Capital’s follow-on investment demonstrates its commitment to accelerating Flexiti’s growth and innovation in the alternative lending space. Flexiti has also secured new $350 million senior and mezzanine credit facilities, including $300 million provided by Credit Suisse AG, Cayman Islands Branch, providing capital to support the portfolio acquisition and its strong growth trajectory.
The acquisition adds more than one million new credit card customers, and 900 new merchant locations currently offering TDFS credit card financing at their locations, to Flexiti’s client base.
