Bill.com, a leading provider of cloud-based software that simplifies, digitises, and automates complex back-office financial operations for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs), announced today that it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Invoice2go for approximately $625 million in stock and cash. Invoice2go is a major provider of mobile-first accounts receivable (AR) software that enables small businesses and freelancers to expand their client base, manage invoicing and payments, establish their brand, and much more. Invoice2go provides a huge global customer base of small businesses from headquarters in Sydney, Australia and Palo Alto, California.
The acquisition will strengthen Bill.com's current accounts receivable product and contribute to the company's aim of making it simple to connect and do business. Through mobile and desktop applications, Invoice2go's AR solution enables businesses to engage and interact with their consumers, generate professional invoices, and simplify their AR operations. With electronic payments and Bill.com's platform and payments experience, there is a great opportunity to help businesses get paid faster and more conveniently.
“We are making investments to expedite the adoption of our accounts receivable solution. Bill.com will get a top product and a highly skilled team with the acquisition of Invoice2go. It contributes to our plan of investing in our platform to become a one-stop shop for businesses to alter their financial processes, make and receive payments, and manage their cash flow. “With Invoice2go's worldwide workforce and client base, we will be able to service more businesses all over the world,” stated René Lacerte, CEO and Founder of Bill.com.
“Today, paper checks are used in the majority of small business transactions. Nonetheless, we know from our customers that there is a significant push to digitally change and implement e-payments. When combined with Invoice2go's product capabilities, our payments knowledge and go-to-market capabilities can make it even easier for businesses to get paid swiftly and electronically. Bill.com and Invoice2go send billions of dollars in invoices each year that can be converted to electronic payments,” Mr. Lacerte said.
“We are overjoyed to be partnering with Bill.com,” stated Mark Lenhard, CEO of Invoice2go. “By combining Bill.com's market-leading payments platform and broad market reach with Invoice2go's deep AR experience, we have created a one-of-a-kind opportunity to give SMBs and freelancers with a strong platform to automate their day-to-day financial operations and regulate their cash flow. I am equally excited for both firms' employees, who share a culture that stresses delivering innovation and excellent customer value to all small company owners.”
