Company Law – M&A – Private Equity
Cornet Vincent Segurel represented the founding partners of GlobePayroll, the French publisher of payroll management software for mid-market companies, in the context of the sale of the absolute majority of GlobePayroll's share capital to SD Worx, one of the world's leading providers of HR solutions and services.
SD Worx had acquired a 40% stake in GlobePayroll in 2018. The group increased its stake to 50.01% the following year. With this new transaction, SD Worx strengthens its control and is now a 70% shareholder in the French company, which was created at the end of 2015 as the first on the market to offer a global payroll solution entirely in the cloud.
By strengthening its stake in GlobePayroll, SD Worx can accelerate the development of its fully cloud-based payroll solution, particularly at an international level. Called Global People Services, this offering covers all aspects of administrative and payroll management and is aimed at mid-sized European markets.
