OCS, the Italian leader in the provision of proprietary software solutions for the retail finance market, controlled by private equity fund Charme Capital Partners, today announced the acquisition of a majority stake in Talentomobile. Raúl Repiso, founder and CEO of Talentomobile will maintain a minority stake regulated with a put/call option mechanism.
The acquisition, which has been advised by Klecha & Co., represents OCS’s first M&A deal outside the Italian market.
Founded in 2014 with offices in Madrid and Mexico City and with a 50% year on year growth, Talentomobile creates solutions and digital products based on a mobile-first strategy using artificial intelligence, chatbot and machine learning technology, with a particular focus on the digital customer onboarding with biometric authentication tools, which today represents one of the segments with the greatest strategic importance and growth outolook.
Thanks to its vision and innovation capacity, Talentomobile is currently playing a key role in the on-going digitalization process for market leading Spanish financial institutions such as Santander, BBVA, Caixa and Bankinter and has recently started its expansion into the LATAM market.
The acquisition represents OCS’s first international step and will allow OCS to expand into Spain and LATAM, alongside providing Talentomobile products and services to its Italian based customers, completing and enriching the current OCS product offering.
