Augmentum Fintech plc
£7.5 million investment into Receipt Bank
Augmentum Fintech plc (LSE: AUGM) (the “Company” or “Augmentum”), the UK’s only publicly listed investment company focusing on the fintech sector, announces that the Company has made a £7.5 million investment into Receipt Bank, the UK-headquartered digital bookkeeping platform.
Augmentum’s investment is part of Receipt Bank’s £55 million Series C fundraising, led by Insight Partners, with participation from exisiting investors Kennet Partners and Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce (CIBC).
Receipt Bank (receipt-bank.com), which was named one of the 50 fastest growing technology companies by the Sunday Times 2019 Tech Track, currently operates in six markets - the UK, US, Canada, Australia, South Africa and France. The new funding will support further expansion to new markets in Asia and within Europe.
Tim Levene, of Augmentum Fintech, said: “Digital bookkeeping allows businesses to save both time and expense, and Receipt Bank’s technology make the company a clear leader in this sector. Receipt Bank’s continued growth and product evolution demonstrates that they provide an increasingly essential service for accountants as bookkeeping digitises, which is a trend that they will leverage as they continue their global expansion, and which is supported by this fundraising round.”
