Global buyout major Eurazeo has formed a consortium with Cathay Capital and Sagard Newgen to enter into an exclusive agreement to make €130m of investment in DiliTrust.

Eurzeo will invest €52m in the company while the company’s exisiting investor Calcium Capital will be offloading all of its stake.

“DiliTrust is a leading player in this market with an integrated software suite that has won over a number of top-tier clients. We are excited about the prospect of bringing the international business networks, sector expertise and active support of
Cathay, Eurazeo and Sagard to help DiliTrust achieve its ambitious strategy, based on a combination of organic growth and acquisitions.”
