Software Equity Group’s Client, Indatus, Acquired by RealPage

RPIndatus

Acquisition adds 11,000 apartment communities to its customer base

CARROLLTON, Texas (June 2, 2015) – RealPage, Inc. (NASDAQ: RP), a leading provider of on-demand software and software-enabled services to the rental housing industry, today announced it has acquired select assets of ICIM Corporation, marketed under the trade name Indatus. Indatus provides a suite of cloud-based, smart answer automation and routing solutions that handle maintenance calls for over 11,000 apartment communities. The solutions enable property owners and managers to increase the efficiency and accountability of maintenance staff, in addition to ensuring maintenance and emergency callsare promptly resolved.

RealPage plans to combine the Indatus solutions with its Level One live agent solutions. The combined offering is expected to enable unmatched lead and resident management capabilities targeted not only to the multifamily rental housing market, but also to the single family and vacation rental markets.

“Our clients will have the option of choosing a custom combination of live agent response and answer automation for leasing or maintenance calls,” said Michael Daley, president of Level One at RealPage. “Live agent response is the most effective way to significantly increase capture rates for leads and improve resident satisfaction on service calls, but new smart answer automation capabilities fill a need for some properties wanting a low-touch option for calls to be answered and managed. We believe the capabilities acquired through Indatusgive us the ability to offer compelling new products, including a powerful new solution that captures maintenance calls through answer automation, transcribes the calls with our live agents and injects a service request seamlessly into any property management system – greatly increasing tracking accuracy and the effectiveness of the local maintenance technicians.”

“We believe the acquisition of Indatus creates revenue synergies that are compelling across all rental housing markets and selected RealPage product families,” said Bryan Hill, CFO of RealPage. “As we combine the two platforms over time, we also expect to remove redundant technology and costs. Most importantly, Indatus serves rental housing units that are new to RealPage, increasing our total units that use one or more of our solutions to over 10 million. These unique units offer a tremendous opportunity to accelerate revenue growth through cross-selling our current solutions, which possess a $350 per year potential per conventional property unit.”

Financial Summary

The acquisition purchase price of approximately $49.0 million is subject to certain adjustments, including up to $2.0 million in additional earn-out consideration that may become payable if certain post-closing revenue milestones are achieved. For the trailing 12 months ended March 31, 2015, revenue for Indatus was $11.5 million with Adjusted EBITDA of $2.4 million. The company expects to integrate the acquisition into its existing live agent solutions over the remainder of 2015. The acquisition is expected to contribute revenue of $7.0 million to $7.5 million and Adjusted EBITDA of $1.2 million to $1.5 million in 2015.

SAN DIEGO, CA – May 26, 2015 – Software Equity Group, LLC (SEG) announced today its client, Nexternal, a leading cloud eCommerce platform provider, has been acquired by HighJump, a global provider of supply chain management solutions.

Nexternal provides an omni-channel commerce platform that serves manufacturers, distributors and retailers. Nexternal’s platform includes a functionally rich order management system that captures both business-to-business and business-to-consumer orders, via standard and mobile web browsers. Going beyond traditional eCommerce, companies use Nexternal’s commerce platform to run call centers, generate and manage subscription orders, retrieve Amazon marketplace orders, create club orders and receive orders from other systems via its API. The system acts as the single hub for all pricing, promotions, status and customer care related to the order management lifecycle.

“HighJump continues to build on our strategy of providing end-to-end supply chain solutions built upon a common, adaptable technology platform,” said Michael Cornell, CEO of HighJump. “The acquisition of Nexternal adds important commerce capabilities to further deliver upon HighJump’s omni-channel vision and provides new options for HighJump’s 14,000 global customers.”

“The combination of Nexternal and HighJump will allow us to bring a unique set of technologies to our customers and our markets. Through its TrueCommerce division, HighJump is currently facilitating B2B transactions via EDI. For those customers, we can provide a second option – capturing B2B transactions via the web,” said Alex Gile, founder and President of Nexternal. “Furthermore, currently there is not a single provider of a unified eCommerce platform and warehouse management system. We look forward to changing that with this combination. I am confident that this combination provides great benefits for our customers, and provides long-term opportunity for our employees.”
