ADIA and CapitalG to Invest in TeamSystem

MILAN, Italy
TeamSystem, a leading provider of business software solutions to businesses and accountants in Italy and Spain, is pleased to announce that a wholly owned subsidiary of the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority (ADIA) and CapitalG, Alphabet’s independent growth fund, have entered into definitive agreements to acquire minority stakes in TeamSystem. Hellman & Friedman (H&F) will remain the majority shareholder after these transactions. These investments follow that of Silver Lake announced in May 2023, and mark another important milestone in TeamSystem’s journey towards driving the digital transformation of southern European businesses.

Hamad Shahwan Aldhaheri, Executive Director of the Private Equities Department at ADIA, said: “We firmly believe that TeamSystem is well positioned to continue to grow in both existing and new markets. This investment aligns with our approach of supporting market-leading software businesses that offer mission-critical solutions to their customer bases.”

Jesse Wedler, General Partner at CapitalG, added: “TeamSystem has built a compelling software suite serving nearly 2 million businesses across Southern Europe. We are delighted to be able to connect TeamSystem with experts from Google and Alphabet to support the company as it expands its rapid customer growth and broadens the scope of its product offerings.”

Commenting on ADIA’s and CapitalG’s investment in TeamSystem, Federico Leproux, CEO of TeamSystem, said: “These new investments are a significant vote of confidence in TeamSystem’s strategy as we broaden our product offerings and expand our reach into new markets. We are excited to continue our journey with Hellman & Friedman, who has been our trusted partner for over seven years.”

Blake Kleinman, Partner at Hellman & Friedman, said: “The partnership between H&F and TeamSystem has been built on a foundation of mutual trust, shared vision and a commitment to long-term growth. We are delighted with the performance of the company since we invested in 2016, and excited to continue our collaboration with TeamSystem’s outstanding management team. We are also pleased to welcome ADIA and CapitalG as our trusted partners, alongside management, Hg and Silver Lake.”

The transactions are expected to close in Q1 2024, subject to customary closing conditions and regulatory approvals where applicable. Evercore is acting as financial adviser to H&F and TeamSystem.
