This capital raise follows the company’s previous $270 million funding in 2021, which also led to its valuation surpassing $1 billion. PPRO, founded in 2006 and headquartered in London, offers digital payments infrastructure for banks and businesses to scale their checkout and acquiring services. The company has been actively expanding its market presence through partnerships and integrations, such as with GrabPay, UnionPay International, and Toss Pay in the Asia Pacific region. In 2023, the company saw leadership changes with CEO Simon Black stepping down and former CCO Motie Bring taking the helm. PPRO’s CFO Rahul Raswant highlights the company’s focus on helping customers access new markets through the provision of local payment methods, indicating a strategic direction towards further growth and market expansion.
