Quayle Munro is pleased to announce that it has advised the shareholders of Message Automation Ltd (“Message Automation”), the leading specialist provider of post-trade control solutions, on its sale to Broadridge Financial Solutions, Inc (NYSE:BR; “Broadridge”).
Message Automation helps the capital markets industry, including banks, brokers and investment managers, to manage trade processing challenges created by new regulations and market practices across all asset classes. Its software allows clients to transform their governance, risk and compliance frameworks to meet regulatory reporting standards set by Dodd-Frank, EMIR and other G20 mandates, under significant time pressure.
Hugh Daly, co-founder and CEO of Message Automation, said: “Quayle Munro’s sector expertise, understanding of our business, and diligence in managing the process ensured the best possible outcome for our shareholders. Their advice and insights were critical to getting the deal done, and we very much look forward to joining the Broadridge team.”
Tim Shortland, Managing Director of Quayle Munro, said: “Message Automation has established itself as a global leader in post-trade control solutions and the acquisition by Broadridge will help accelerate its impressive organic growth trajectory. We are delighted to have worked with Hugh and his team on this transaction.”
The transaction is Quayle Munro’s second with Broadridge in the last twelve months and continues our strong track record in the financial technology sector following recent transactions involving Pirum, 4Sight Financial Software and FXCM.
