The Nearmap Board has unanimously recommended a proposal from software investment firm, Thoma Bravo, to acquire 100 percent of Nearmap. The offer from Thoma Bravo demonstrates the success of the Nearmap strategy, the market leadership of our technology and products, and the strong capability of our teams. We expect the review process will continue until early November.
Thoma Bravo is one of the largest private equity firms in the world with more than US$114 billion in assets under management. The firm invests in growth-oriented, innovative companies in the software and technology sectors.
For our customers and partners, it is business as usual. There will be no impact to the service they receive, nor the market-leading technology and products they access.
This is a transformational opportunity for Nearmap. At the same time, we’re continuing to invest and grow our operations, so we continue to innovate for our customers. Some very exciting recent developments at Nearmap include:
The proposal from Thoma Bravo, which is still subject to regulatory and shareholder approval, is an exciting opportunity to further scale-up our business. Nearmap is unique because we own the complete hardware, processing, analytics, and software delivery pipeline. This provides us with a powerful, irreplicable way of achieving best-in-class, industry-leading accuracy, quality, and efficiency. We look forward to sharing with you these developments, and more, at our annual customer event – Nearmap NAVIG8 – on Tuesday, October 11, 2022.
Finally, I’d like to thank our customers and partners for their continued support and partnership. Nearmap now serves more than 12,000 customers globally, with around 90,000 individual users who can access more than 60 million individual aerial images. Our success is only possible with their support.
