OMADA A/S to Receive Strategic Investment from CVC Capital Partners’ Growth Fund and GRO Capital
Omada A/S (“Omada” or the “Company”), a global leader of Identity Governance and Administration (“IGA”) software and services, today announced that CVC Capital Partners’ Growth Fund (“CVC Growth Partners” or “CVC”) and GRO Capital (“GRO”) have agreed to become new majority shareholders and provide further capital into the Company to accelerate growth.
CVC Growth Partners and GRO will partner with Omada’s management team to further accelerate Omada’s product innovation, grow its partner network in North America and Europe, enhance sales and marketing efforts, as well as continue expanding its strong position in Europe and building greater depth in the North American market.
Omada is headquartered in Copenhagen, Denmark, with over 270 employees across offices in Europe and North America. The Company helps its customers globally to govern and control users’ access rights to enterprise systems and data, reduce risk of accidental or wrongful data access, and ensure compliance with regulation (such as GDPR) as well as industry-specific legislation.
Omada’s software platform, the Omada Identity Suite (“OIS”), is a best-in-class next generation IGA solution. OIS, together with the Company’s unique best practice process framework for identity management and access governance, enables enterprises to manage identities and govern their access on an ongoing basis across heterogeneous IT systems, including major IT vendor platforms delivered on-premises and in the cloud, and a number of legacy and modern applications. The demand for Omada’s offerings has been increasing globally along with customer awareness of potential solutions to their complex identity governance challenges, and the Company has grown revenues at a compounded annual growth rate of over 40% for the last 2 years.
“We are excited about the partnership with CVC and GRO and we look forward to working with them to fulfil our joint vision to serve the majority of enterprises of the world with our strong Identity & Access Governance solution”, said Morten Boel Sigurdsson, CEO and founder of Omada. “CVC and GRO represent a unique combination of competencies that will support our expansion in North America, Europe and other markets. The need for IGA solutions is rapidly increasing across markets as more and more organizations realize the need for a flexible IGA solution to protect them from hacking, insider threats, increased compliance requirements and the consequences of GDPR.”
“The increasingly complex IT world and more stringent compliance requirements globally will continue to drive strong demand for Omada’s next generation identity governance solution, as the Company has proven its ability to successfully solve complex problems for its customers”, said Sebastian Kuenne, who leads CVC Growth Partners in Europe. “Omada represents an exciting opportunity and is a perfect fit for our growth fund, which focuses on high-growth software and technology-enabled business services companies. We, together with GRO, are thrilled to partner with Morten and the entire executive team to expand Omada’s offering and global presence."
“We have followed Omada for close to a decade and are very impressed with the product and their blue-chip customer base. This investment is perfectly aligned with GRO’s strategy of investing in outstanding technology companies and helping accelerate their growth”, said Morten Weicher, partner at GRO Capital. “Morten Sigurdsson has built a very strong team and assembled a deep bench of highly skilled and ambitious individuals operating in a unique culture of teamwork, delivery, and customer service.”
With the entrance of CVC and GRO, C5 Capital (“C5”) will no longer be shareholders in Omada. “We are pleased to have contributed to the growth of Omada since 2015”, said Andre Pienaar, managing partner and founder at C5 Capital.
Morten Weicher, Sebastian Kuenne, Lars Dybkjær (Managing Partner of GRO Capital), and John Clark (Managing Partner of CVC Growth Partners) will join Omada’s board of directors.
Closing of the transaction is anticipated to take place in December 2018, and is subject only to mandatory competition approvals.
