DH Corporation (D+H), Canadian financial technology company, has reached an agreement to acquire Fundtech, a US-based global payment services provider, for $1.25bn in cash from a private equity firm GTCR.

Subject to regulatory approvals and other customary conditions, the deal is scheduled to conclude in the second quarter of this year.

The transaction is expected to expand D+H’s US customer base as well as enhance growth opportunities in North America, EMEA and APAC regions. It is also expected to strengthen the company’s position as a key global financial technology provider with a strategic expansion into global payments.

D+H said the combination would result in pro forma 2014 adjusted revenues of about $1.45bn and adjusted net income of $216m, as well as attractive medium-term synergies and cost savings.

Additionally, D+H signed an agreement with a syndicate of underwriters, pursuant to which they have agreed to buy from D+H and sell to the public 16.5 million subscription receipts at a price of $37.95 per receipt, for gross proceeds to D+H of $626.18m, and $200m of 5% extendible convertible unsecured subordinated debentures.

The net proceeds of the offering will be used to fund a part of the Fundtech deal, the company said.

D+H CEO Gerrard Schmid said: "The acquisition of Fundtech puts D+H at the forefront of these trends globally, providing us with a market-leading software platform with established scale in mission-critical payment technology. It also delivers capabilities that are relevant to our existing customer base in Canada and the US while making D+H more relevant to global financial institutions and large US banks."
