It’s been quite a week in the supply chain software market with buyouts, new rounds, and interesting business expansions.  In no particular order:

  • Infor buys GT Nexus for $675 million.  Application buys a platform. Link
  • Envestnet buys Yodlee for $590 million.  Another application buys a platform. Link
  • Tradeshift buys Merchantry for $30 million.  Platform buys application (and signals shift into procure-to-pay).  Link
  • Premier acquires Healthcare Insights LLC, a provider of financial management software for hospitals, for $65 million.  Another platform buys application. Link
  • FIS acquire SunGard for a cool $5.1 billion.  Equity investors appeared to get 1.5x their money back after a decade long holding period.  (A not so cool 4% IRR.)  Link
  • C2FO, an online marketplace for early payment discounts raises $40 million more from Temasek, a Singaporean sovereign wealth fund. Link
  • VATBox, an Israeli provider of automated VAT recovery software raises $24 million in new VC funding. Link
  • Payoneer, an international payments platform, raises $50 million in new funding. Link
  • Intelex, which provides environmental, health, safety and quality management software, raises $C160. Link
  • Entertainment Partners acquires Ease Entertainment Services, which creates a nice platform in the entertainment industry (e.g., movies and television production).  (Ever heard the term “he looks like he camc from Central Casting”?  Entertainment Partners owns Central Casting!) Link

It is a darn good time to be raising money, or selling your company, in supply chain software, financial supply chain software, or enterprise software generally.
