Vista’s simultaneous acquisition of Starhome Mach and merger with existing portfolio company Telarix brings together two leading software providers to the global telecommunications industry. The combination of Telarix and Starhome Mach creates the first and only end-to-end technology solution enabling telecommunication and mobile virtual network operators (“MVNOs”) to manage and optimize their partner relationships across the full spectrum of voice, SMS and data transactions and value-added solutions. The combined business will serve thousands of customers across over 130 countries globally.

“With this combination, Telarix and Starhome Mach will serve telecommunication carriers and service providers around the globe, playing a critical role in optimizing and enabling the efficient operations of global communications solutions for the retail, wholesale and interconnect markets,” said Telarix CEO Marco Limena. “As a single company, we will be able to provide more powerful, integrated and comprehensive solutions to enable a wide-range of carriers to successfully participate, compete, and partner within the global telecom ecosystem. I am excited to work with these two world class teams to continue to serve our combined customer bases.”

Telarix provides leading Interconnect Business Optimization solutions, including providing the industry’s de facto standard for enabling business-to-business relationships for the voice, SMS and data service markets and a full suite of products for routing, billing, settlement, trading, and fraud prevention to carriers worldwide. Telarix’s products are highly complementary to Starhome Mach’s end-to-end wholesale and retail roaming, clearing and settlement and fraud prevention solutions and services.

The combined company will be the only provider of carrier solutions able to manage both the roaming and interconnect markets, creating a unique opportunity for the development of advanced product solutions, cross-ecosystem insights and real-time analytics that build upon the combined data and capabilities of the respective platforms of both companies.

“Our customers, many of whom already use Telarix’s solutions, want a single suite of integrated solutions to help manage the complexities and solve the challenges carriers face in ensuring seamless, ubiquitous connectivity for their customers,” said Starhome Mach’s CEO, Itai Margalit. “Under Fortissimo’s ownership, we successfully implemented a long-term strategy which included the acquisition and integration of Mach, launched SaaS versions of our leading roaming and clearing platforms and introduced a variety of innovative solutions beyond our customers’ roaming needs including analytics, real-time anti-fraud and IOT. As we look forward to our next phase of growth, we are thrilled to become a part of the Vista family and joining with Telarix to be able to further accelerate our strategies to provide the unique, comprehensive solutions that clients are demanding.”

“We are excited to help bring together Telarix and Starhome Mach’s market leading platforms, customers and management teams to uniquely address the holistic technology needs of telecommunication carriers worldwide,” said Rob Rogers, Co-Head of Vista Foundation Fund and Principal at Vista Equity Partners. “The opportunity to leverage the data of the combined platforms to create powerful new solutions will help power global communications in an ever-increasing complex environment.”

The combined entity will be headquartered in Vienna, Virginia and be led by a combined management team with current Telarix Chief Executive Officer Marco Limena as CEO. The transaction, which is subject to customary closing conditions, is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2018. Terms of the transaction have not been disclosed.

Residence- and citizenship-by-investment programs have firmly established themselves over the past few years as the new frontier in terms of freedom, flexibility, and future-readiness, both for the countries issuing these programs and for the individual investors participating in them. The societal and economic value these programs generate is undisputed. The investment migration industry as a whole is currently grossing roughly USD 18 billion per year, with an expectation that it will hit the USD 20 billion mark very soon. Foreign direct investment (FDI) is now considered the lifeblood of economic growth for many developing and recovering smaller countries around the world. As such, the number of investment migration programs has been increasing rapidly, from just a handful of programs in the 1980s and 1990s to over 100 countries that now have investment migration provisions in their laws. There are more than 60 active programs today, with Moldova and Montenegro — both fast-growing Eu
