On July 29, 2020, Netfin announced a definitive agreement to combine with Triterras Fintech, creating one of the world’s highest volume commodity trading and trade finance platforms. In fiscal year 2019, Triterras Fintech generated $13.2 million of net income on $3.6 billion of transaction volume. For fiscal year 2020 (ending February 28, 2021), Triterras Fintech expects to generate approximately $7.8 billion of transaction volume, $56.6 million of revenue and $39.8 million of EBITDA and to grow at more than a 60% compound annual growth rate through 2023.
As previously announced, Triterras Fintech generated $2.9 billion of transaction volume through the first four months of fiscal year 2020 and average monthly transaction volumes 70% higher than fiscal 2019. The estimated post-transaction enterprise value of $674 million values the business combination at an attractive 8.0x multiple of estimated 2021 EBITDA of $84.3 million, while the average of comparable company medians is a 20.0x multiple.
The business combination has been unanimously approved by the boards of directors of both Netfin and Triterras Fintech and is still on track to close in the fourth quarter of 2020, subject to regulatory and shareholder approvals, and other customary closing conditions.
