Headquartered in Basel, Switzerland with multinational operations in Europe and North America, Unblu empowers international financial institutions to increase sales and provide better customer experiences across digital channels. Their customer engagement platform encompasses AI, messaging, video communication, and document sharing, enabling real-time collaboration, while also allowing companies to exchange information securely with their customers.
As part of the transaction, Unblu will become an independent subsidiary of Swiss Post, and will continue to operate as an autonomous company.
Luc Haldimann, Founder and CEO of Unblu, commented: “Both myself and the entire team are excited to become part of Swiss Post for this new phase of the Unblu journey. GP Bullhound has been a great advisory partner to us, and their commitment and deep sector knowledge was instrumental in delivering a successful transaction.”
Alexis Scorer, Partner at GP Bullhound, commented: “We are delighted to have advised the Unblu founders and shareholders on this transaction. Luc and his team pioneered the development of customer engagement software integrating digital and human interactions, and are now uniquely positioned to address the large and fast-growing global market in the Financial Services sector.”
This marks GP Bullhound’s 21st software transaction over the last twelve months, further demonstrating the firm’s leading position as an advisor to best-in-class software companies globally, with recent deals including the $500m investment into EcoVadis led by Astorg and General Atlantic, and the merger and €180m majority investment into Echobot and Leadfeeder by Great Hill Partners, among many others.
