Ladies and gentlemen, hold on to your wallets because Nuvini S.a, the Brazilian software-as-a-service holding company, is about to burst onto the New York Stock Exchange scene via a merger with a special acquisition purpose company (SPAC) put together by Mercato Partners. With an impressive tag of $235 million dollars, it seems Nuvini is not here to play around in the financial playground. The company has a family of seven startups under its wing, serving up a smorgasbord of software services to Brazilian businesses like a tech-savvy mom-and-pop store.
The CEO of the company, Pierre Schulman, in an interview that can only be described as a mixture of excitement and ambition laced with a sprinkle of corporate speak, announced plans to use the $60 million from the merger to bring more startup orphans under Nuvini’s roof. Imagine that, a company actually planning to use money to make more money. The audacity!
Nuvini is not content with just ruling the roost in Brazil. No, sir. They’ve cast their expansionist gaze towards Mexico and Colombia, like a software conquering horde from the south. But don’t worry, they’re looking for potential acquisitions in various areas of the SaaS market, not just any market. They’ve kindly decided to exclude the fintech companies from their hunting grounds, citing inflated valuations as the reason. It’s as if they said, “we’re rich, but not stupid”.
Schulman, who will also steer the ship of the combined company, laid out his plans. He intends to start actively progressing in these expansionist conversations by the beginning of the second quarter. Kind of makes you wonder, what does ‘actively progressing in conversations’ mean? Is it fancy corporate talk for ‘we’re going to buy them out’, or is it more along the lines of ‘we’re going to wine and dine them until they can’t say no’?
But hold your horses. If you’re a health company, you might want to hold off on that celebratory champagne because Nuvini is not interested. The high level of regulation in the health sector seems to be a bit too much for the company to stomach, so they’ve decided to give it a miss.
In the end, it’s all about that NASDAQ listing. With that under its belt, Nuvini is all set to carve out its name in the technology industry, one acquisition at a time. So, keep your eyes peeled and your stocks ready, because Nuvini is coming to a NASDAQ near you. Here’s to hoping their software service action is as serious as they claim it is.
