Eight Advisory supported Capital Banking Solutions in its first LBO

Eight Advisory has conducted the financial vendor due diligence for Capital Banking Solutions (CBS). The banking software developer is now entrusting the majority of its capital to the European investment fund Amethis.

CBS, which has been backed by a consortium of Lebanese and Monegasque institutional investors since its creation more than 25 years ago, is turning for the first time to a fund that will actively support the company’s development, particularly at international level.

 

Originally from Lebanon and now based in France, CBS has developed two flagship solutions. The first, CapitalBanker, is aimed at retail banks and financial institutions and enables them to manage their financial flows, monitor loans, CRM and fulfil compliance obligations. The second, Capital Private, is aimed at private banks and wealth managers, mainly in Europe, with a digital platform that integrates portfolio management, CRM and compliance tools. The company, which employs 300 people, generated a revenue of more than EUR 30 million in 2022, with more than half coming from Europe and 20% from Africa and the Middle East.

 

For its part, Amethis, which is expected to have raised almost EUR 100 million of its EUR 150 million target by next summer, has signed the third deal of its European fund after obtaining exclusivity at the end of the first round.

 

We were delighted to finalise this transaction, which will enable CBS to build partnerships with third-party integrators that can accelerate the commercialisation of its solutions. Amethis’ objective of doubling the size of the group within five years is achievable by strengthening its presence in the countries in which it operates and opening up new markets“, emphasises Emmanuel Riou, Partner at Eight Advisory.
