Thursday 23 February 2023 08:48 CET | News

Canada-based fintech Nuvei has announced the completion of its USD 1.3 billion acquisition of payment solution provider Paya.


Paya amplifies Nuvei’s existing growth strategy and expands its reach into new underpenetrated and non-cyclical verticals where Nuvei’s proprietary technology is well positioned to accelerate customer growth. The announcement was first made in January 2023, when the fintech initialised the all-cash acquisition of Paya at USD 10 per share.

Paya is a US provider of integrated payment and frictionless commerce solutions that processed USD 50 billion in annual payment volume in 2022, mainly in high growth verticals such as healthcare, non-profit, government, utilities, and other B2B end markets. Nuvei and Paya are highly complementary with respect to geographies, capabilities to offer to customers and partners, and the end-markets and verticals that each currently serves.

According to Canadian fintech, the transaction will enhance its ability to execute on high-growth integrated payment opportunities, given that Paya’s deep software integrates with over 300 independent software vendor platforms and end-to-end commerce solutions allows Nuvei to capitalise on the domestic and global software-led market opportunity.

Commenting on this development, Nuvei’s officials said that this is an important milestone for them as they continue to build a preeminent payment technology provider with strong positions in global ecommerce, integrated payments, and B2B. They are happy to officially welcome their new colleagues from Paya to the Nuvei family. They have been working diligently on their integration planning and are ready to begin the next step on this journey as a single, unified team.

Calculated results for the year ended 31 December 2022 have been of USD 49.5 billion in payment volume, of which USD 13 billion have been for the last three months of that year.
