Broadridge (BR) Completes Acquisition of RPM Technologies

Zacks Equity Research

Broadridge Financial Solutions, Inc. BR has completed the acquisition of RPM Technologies.  The deal was announced on May 21, 2019.

RPM Technologies is one of the leading providers of enterprise wealth management software solutions and services in Canada. At present, RPM's technology platforms support more than 15 million customer accounts.

Adds Technology, Capabilities

The acquisition will lead to the addition of RPM Technologies (state-of-the-art platforms and blue-chip client roster) to Broadridge's Canadian wealth management business. Together, they are expected to better serve their respective clients with next-generation technology and new capabilities.

The buyout is expected to expand Broadridge Canada's addressable market by adding enhanced mutual fund and deposit manufacturing capabilities and providing a solution set for the retail banking sector.

We believe the move will help Broadridge strengthen its Global Technology and Operations segment, which serves capital markets, wealth management, and asset management firms. Revenues from the segment grew $1 million year over year in third-quarter fiscal 2019 on the back of higher net new business from closed sales.
