TP ICAP acquires ClearCompress
Expansion into innovative compression services
TP ICAP plc ("TP ICAP" or "the Company") today announces that it has acquired ClearCompress Limited ("ClearCompress"), a provider of innovative, algorithm-based, light-touch compression services in cleared and uncleared derivatives that assist clients to achieve cost efficiencies and capital reduction.
TP ICAP and ClearCompress started collaborating in 2017. At that time, ClearCompress contributed development and algorithm expertise and TP ICAP contributed access to clients and support infrastructure. The parties deepened their relationship in March 2019 when TP ICAP agreed to provide funding of GBP500,000 and the benefit of its regulated status to ClearCompress. The parties have now agreed to formalise their relationship with the acquisition of ClearCompress by TP ICAP. The key team members of ClearCompress, including David Hill, the CEO, will remain with the business and continue to expand its client base and service range.
The sellers of ClearCompress are the founders, early-stage investors and management team. The consideration for the acquisition is GBP750,000 in cash to be paid over 2 years, and performance-related payments for the 6 years starting 1 September 2019 until 31 August 2025 based on the revenues of the business, payable annually in cash or shares at the discretion of TP ICAP.
The gross assets of ClearCompress at 31 January 2019 were GBP88,152 and the business reported a loss before tax of GBP346,606 for the year ended 31 January 2019.
Nicolas Breteau, CEO of TP ICAP, said, "The acquisition of ClearCompress is in line with our strategy to broaden our customer service offering. The compression runs we have conducted demonstrate excellent outcomes for our clients. We are delighted to welcome this innovative company with its expertise in algo-driven capital optimisation solutions to our group and we are excited to move forward and grow the business together."
David Hill, CEO of ClearCompress, said, "As ClearCompress enters the next phase in its development, we are looking forward to being a part of the TP ICAP Group which will enable us to accelerate our client reach, develop new products and expand internationally. Our partnership with TP ICAP and the solutions we deliver have been well received by clients and we are enthusiastic and confident about what more we can do in the future."
