GP BULLHOUND FUND VI INVESTS IN COVERMANAGER
Bringing innovation to hospitality.
Madrid, 13 December 2022 - GP Bullhound announces a new investment into CoverManager, a leading bookings automation and optimisation software for the hospitality sector, as part of the second closing to their €52M funding round. With this investment, GP Bullhound will support the company in its internationalisation, to further consolidate its position as a market leader in Spain.

Founded in Sevilla in 2015, CoverManager has developed an end-to-end software suite for booking management, aggregating all online and offline channels into a single dashboard, automating bookings, and optimising table use. The platform was developed hand in hand with demanding high-end restaurants, and has a vast range of functionalities and customisation options, including features such as rider management, a fully-fledged CRM tool, and the recently launched “payments-at-the-table” selection.

After rapidly becoming the leading platform in Spain, the company has now entered new markets where there is large room for booking digitalisation, in regions such as Italy, Portugal, Greece, and Latin America. CoverManager also recently completed the acquisition of Seatris in Germany, launching their operations in the DACH region. During 2022, CoverManager has doubled its ARR while maintaining highly profitable EBITDA levels, as it currently serves over 8,000 restaurants.

José Antonio Pérez Moral, Co-founder and CEO, commented: “We are thrilled to welcome GP Bullhound to join us in our journey of building the global technology standard for the hospitality industry, helping restaurants and venues improve their profitability and be closer to their customers.”

Per Roman, Co-founder and Managing Partner at GP Bullhound, commented: “We were astounded by the power and the depth of CoverManager’s software, which made us understand their rapid success in Spain. We are excited to join José Antonio and the CoverManager team as they internationalise the platform and become a global leader.”

GP Bullhound invested through Fund VI. Other recent software investments include Connex One, Typeform, HackerOne, Ecovadis, and Causalens, among many others.
