Beanstream Gets Acquired

Today, Bambora, a growth-focused payments startup based in Sweden, has offered to buy Beanstream. Bambora is an established processor of electronic payments and just happens to be one of the largest payment providers in Sweden!

Since launching a mere four months ago, Bambora has been on the hunt for the best and most innovative payments entrepreneurs globally. Bambora Group is made up of a number of payment companies, including Euroline, Keycorp, dSAFE, Samport, IP Payments, MPS, DK Online and ePay. Combined, this group already handles more than $50 billion in transaction value a year.

Welcome to the Bambora Family.

When the acquisition closes, which is expected to take place in September 2015, Beanstream will be the newest addition to the Bambora family. Beanstream is joining a new, but experienced management team made up of payments industry veterans from around the globe.

With 520 employees working across three continents, Bambora understands local market demands and the many restrictions facing merchants today.

Bambora is owned by Nordic Capital Fund VIII. With a focus on putting merchants first and a mission to revolutionize the payments industry, Bambora intends to spur payments innovation in-store, online and anywhere in-between.
