PayRetailers acquires payment company Transfeera in a strategic move to expand its business in Brazil

RGS is pleased to announce that it has acted as financial advisor for Transfeera in its sale to PayRetailers.  Founded in 2017, Transfeera, a payment institution regulated by the Central Bank of Brazil, specializes in providing technology and regulatory infrastructure for transactions and payments via Pix and Brazilian boletos. With over 450 clients, including fintechs, marketplaces, and e-commerce businesses, Transfeera positions itself as a reference player, evidenced by its annual TPV of over R$25 billion.

PayRetailers is a Spanish processor of high-complexity payments operating in more than 20 countries in Latin America and Africa. This strategic move strengthens its position in the Brazilian market and accelerates the development of a comprehensive roadmap of payment and banking technology solutions.

The transaction is still subject to approval by the Central Bank and CADE.

PayRetailers, one of the leading fintechs in payments in Latin America, announces the acquisition of Transfeera, a regulated payment processing company. The operation is subject to approval by the Administrative Council for Economic Defense (CADE) and is part of PayRetailers' strategic plan to grow in Brazil – in April, the company received a license from the Brazil’s Central Bank to operate as a payment institution (IP). Transfeera will continue to operate its services normally and will become part of the PayRetailers group, reinforcing its technological capabilities.

"We have already added some global acquisitions and the time has come to consolidate our leadership in Brazil as the largest processor of high-complexity payments, offering an even wider range of products. We should soon announce new acquisitions on other continents, consolidating our position as a reference in payment methods," says Juan Pablo Jutgla, founder and CEO of PayRetailers.

Founded in 2017, Transfeera offers platform and technology solutions for payment processing and bank data validation. According to Jutgla, the company from Santa Catarina stands out as a technological and innovative powerhouse in the local scene, in addition to being aligned with the best practices of the Central Bank.

Transfeera brings more than 450 new customers and 62 employees, expanding PayRetailers' structure to 100 employees in Brazil and 550 worldwide, distributed across ten offices.

"As Transfeera, with this move, we gain access to a vast expertise in the development and offering of banking products, which certainly advances us in building competitive advantages against the market. Together, we aim to accelerate our journey of technological innovation, providing the market with innovative, safe, and efficient solutions," says Fernando Nunes, co-founder and CEO of Transfeera. With the operation, the executive remains in his position, and the company's operation becomes part of the PayRetailers Group.

The operation was supported by the legal advice of the law firms Pinheiro Neto Advogados and BMA Advogados, while the financial advisory was provided by the companies RGS Partners and Royal Park Partners.
