Flashpoint announces 15th Exit after Clausematch success
August 29, 2023 – London – New York – San Francisco – Flashpoint is pleased to announce its exit from Clausematch, the global RegTech company pioneering the automation of policy management and compliance for regulated industries, following its acquisition by Corlytics. This merger creates a platform that manages the entire regulatory risk value chain on a global scale.
Flashpoint participated in Clausematch’s 2022 US$10.8M strategic investment round via Flashpoint’s Venture Debt Fund I. Flashpoint’s exit from Clausematch marks an important milestone, representing the Group’s 15th exit and the Venture Debt team’s second.
The acquisition of Clausematch positions the Corlytics Group as a partner not only for all regulatory monitoring and compliance operations but also in supporting regulatory attestation within the entire governance, risk and compliance (GRC) and enterprise risk management (ERM) universe. Clausematch founder and CEO Evgeny Likhoded will take up the position of President of Corlytics.
Clausematch successfully expanded globally, servicing 14 out of the top 50 global banks positioning it as the leader in the compliance software domain. Towards the end of last year the company’s customer base in North America exceeded 180,000 users.The business’ offering – software-as-a-service platform (SaaS) for smart management of compliance documents and processes – has proved extremely attractive to regulated companies as they seek to meet increasingly complex and evolving compliance obligations.
Donatella Callegaris, Managing Partner of Flashpoint Venture Debt Fund I, says: “I am delighted for all of the Clausematch team as they embark on the next stage of their journey together with Corlytics. This acquisition presents tremendous synergistic opportunities for Corlytics and the Clausematch platform as they join forces to provide a unique offering combining policy management and compliance software with integrated regulatory content, thus managing the entire regulatory risk value chain. I have very much enjoyed our journey with Jay and the Clausematch team and wish them every success in the new venture.”
