Startec

StarTec sells majority stake to AnaCap and Heidelpay (now known as Unzer)

5 Oct 2017

Heidelberger Payment GmbH (now known as Unzer), together with the growth investor AnaCap Financial Partners, is taking over the Hamburg StarTec Payment [&] Service GmbH. The leading provider of cash-free payment transactions at the point-of-sale thus extends Heidelberg’s portfolio with additional services and expertise for the merging of online and offline payment. “The merger is another milestone for our growth strategy. With this merger, Heidelpay offers one of the most powerful payment platforms and combines online and stationary trading with an international focus. This enables us to offer our customers a true Omnichannel payment solution from a single source, “says Heidelpay CEO Mirko Mantelmann.

Omnichannel payment for the future

E-commerce and classical trade will be fused even further, and payment as a process is bound to go along this path. In addition to payment systems for e-commerce, Heidelpay also offers pay-as-you-go solutions for in-house retailers, which are seamlessly integrated into the uniform payment system. Heidelpay is a payment institute approved by BaFin, the total solution also fulfills the requirements of the new EU directive PSD2, which will enter into force on 13 January 2018. “StarTec and Heidelpay fit perfectly together. Our customers and our employees benefit from many new possibilities by combining both companies under the umbrella of the Heidelpay Group, “says Philipp Zwirner, founder and CEO of StarTec.

Internationalization and growth

Heidelpay is already managing more than 16,000 customers, and StarTec currently has more than 13,000 retailers. The takeover was made possible by the shareholder of Heidelberger Payment GmbH, the UK’s AnaCap Financial Partners. The growth investor has his focus as well as a comprehensive expertise on financial services. Heidelpay and StarTec distinguish themselves beyond the technical expertise by customer proximity and the implementation of individual concepts – the service concept of both will be united in the future joint corporate culture. “This acquisition complements Heidelpay with coherent payment solutions for the POS. Together with AnaCap Financial Partners, we are thus expanding the market position of Heidelpay above-average, “explains Heidelpay CEO Mirko Mantelmann.
