Natixis plans to round out its payments business via the acquisition of Comitéo (Alter CE)
Natixis enters into exclusive negotiations with Comitéo’s (Alter CE’s) shareholders with the aim of taking a majority stake in the company. Following the planned deal, the founders would maintain a stake and remain in charge of the company’s operational management. This move seeks to further step up Natixis’ expansion in the payments business, especially in prepaid services.
Comitéo was set up by Cédric Leblanc and Nicolas Mignot in 2008 to design and develop innovative web services for companies, authorities and works councils who seek to promote their business with their target audiences.
After ten years in operation, Comitéo has more than 2,500 clients accounting for close to 900,000 staff, and more than 200,000 online references (events, outings, activities, entertainment, etc.).
Comitéo won the 2014 Software and IT Services prize at the Deloitte In Extenso Technology Fast 50 awards for fast-growing tech companies.
