Post Date: Dec. 8, 2022

NEW YORK, NY, December 8th, 2022 – Palladium Capital Group, LLC, today announces that it has served as sole placement agent for Darwin CX (“DCX”) for its $38.4M USD funding. The funding was co-led by Toronto-based First Ascent Ventures and California-based Felicitas Global Partners.  Additional funding was provided by New York-based Metropolitan Partners Group and Liam Lynch.

Darwin is on its ascent to establish itself as the industry leader thanks to our strong culture led by dedicated employees and supportive partners,” said DCX Executive Chairman and lead investor Liam Lynch. “We’re thrilled to add these experienced and savvy B2B SaaS investors led by Richard Black and Tony van Marken at First Ascent Ventures, Bonar Chhay at Felicitas Global Partners, and Max Segal at Metropolitan Partners Group, to propel our next stage of growth.”

“This funding from top-tier investment groups accelerates Darwin’s mission to serve our clients with tools and capabilities to grow their subscriber bases and save up to half of their fulfilment and marketing costs,” said Darwin co-founder and CEO Laas Turnbull. “This funding means we can confidently scale our operations, build strategic channel partnerships, and continue investing in our very ambitious product roadmap, led by Michael Smith, our co-founder, CTO, and Head of Innovation.”

DCX has scaled clients by a factor of 10 in the past 18 months, adding new customers and channel partners across North America. Through a mix of organic growth and acquisition, DCX will continue in its drive to become a major voice in the subscription economy, which has grown more than 23% in the past year to $51 billion. By 2025, it is expected to be a $141-trillion economy.

“At Metropolitan, we see a large number of investment opportunities in the lower and middle market—Darwin stands out given its leadership team and growth strategy,” said Metropolitan Vice-President Max Segal.  “Partnering with First Ascent Ventures and Felicitas to support Darwin is a winning combination.”

Palladium Capital Group Advisor to Everflow on its sale to Pegasystems Inc. (NASDAQ: PEGA)

Post Date: May. 24, 2022

NEW YORK, NY – May 24, 2022, Palladium Capital Group, LLC (“Palladium”) announced today that it served as advisor to Everflow Software Ltda. (“Everflow”) in its acquisition by Pegasystems Inc. (NASDAQ: PEGA), the software company that crushes business complexity. Everflow, is an innovative process mining software company based in Brazil. Everflow’s highly intuitive software will enable Pega clients to uncover and fix hidden process inefficiencies that often bog down organizational operations. Combined with Pega’s market-leading AI-powered decisioning and workflow automation capabilities, this acquisition will help Pega deliver the most complete hyperautomation solution available for enterprises.

As business complexity continues to rise, process mining has emerged as a critical tool to help organizations streamline bloated and inconsistent processes that slow employee productivity and ultimately harm the bottom line. But two major limitations hold back process mining’s full potential: first, most process mining tools are too difficult to use and are understood only by technical business consultants; second, process mining by itself can’t fix process problems, it can only identify where those problems lie and suggest possible work arounds.

Everflow will provide Pega clients with an easy-to-use process mining solution that allows businesspeople to analyze and optimize their customer and employee-related processes. It makes it simple for users to automatically model their real-world processes based on organizational activity logs. Then the software analyzes where those processes break down in the field and suggests ways to improve the approach. For example, a retail banking head may deploy Everflow to determine if customers are abandoning the bank’s mobile app when it takes too many clicks to complete a transaction, or an insurance executive may discover if back-office bottlenecks in the application approval workflow are slowing their underwriters down.

But the true power of Everflow’s elegant solution will be fully unlocked when combined with Pega’s market-leading platform for AI-powered decisioning and workflow automation – where these processes already live for many of the world’s leading organizations. When integrated, the solution will help Pega clients continuously monitor processes across the enterprise, identify process issues or deviations when they arise, and even fix them on the fly. This will evolve the process mining field beyond static modeling and deliver real-time process optimization, deploying true hyperautomation on an enterprise scale to improve operations and customer experiences.

The new process mining capability is expected to be available for Pega clients on a limited basis in Q4 this year and with general availability early next year. It will be offered as an add-on capability to Pega Process AI™ – a set of Pega Platform™ capabilities introduced last year that uses self-optimizing AI and decision management to help businesses improve their operations in real time. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The news will be announced today at Pega’s flagship event, PegaWorld iNspire, which is available online on Tuesday, May 24, in the Americas and Europe or Wednesday, May 25, for Asia Pacific and on replays thereafter. After the keynotes, join the Supercharge Your Pega Workflows with Process Mining and Process AI session to learn more about how Pega plans to bring process mining and AI together to deliver the most complete hyperautomation solution available.

Quotes & Commentary:

“Our acquisition of Everflow puts Pega in a position to fulfill the promise of hyperautomation like no other company in the industry,” said Alan Trefler, founder and CEO, Pega. “When combined with our intelligent low-code platform, Everflow will help Pega root out business process inefficiencies from end to end in even the largest and most complex enterprises. We know that digital transformation never stops, and this unique and powerful software combination will allow for continuous improvement in a time of continuous change.”

“We built Everflow solutions to make the power of process mining accessible and actionable for anyone to use,” said Kleber Stroeh, former CEO of Everflow and now current vice president, process mining, Pega. “This philosophy fits perfectly with Pega’s mission to crush business complexity by democratizing the tools that help organizations operate at their full potential. We look forward to joining with Pega and using our solution to help solve problems for some of the most important businesses in the world.”
