Vista Equity Partners , a U.S.-based private equity firm with over $14 billion in cumulative capital commitments, acquired TransFirst in late 2014. Vista is a value-added investor, contributing professional expertise and multi-level support to help companies realize their full potential. Focusing on software, data and technology-enabled organizations, Vista’s investment approach is anchored by a sizable long-term capital base, experience in structuring technology-oriented transactions, and proven management techniques that yield flexibility and opportunity in private equity investing.

As part of the acquisition of TransFirst by Welsh, Carson, Anderson & Stowe in 2007, a financing package of $495 million was established, providing term loans and a revolving line of credit to support growth, acquisitions, working capital and other capital needs of the company. Today, General Electric Capital Corporation is the company’s lead lender and administrative agent for the entire debt facility. GE Antares Capital works with a wide variety of large and mid-sized businesses, multinationals and private equity sponsors and is one of the largest providers of asset-based, cash flow and structured loans.
