With the DiliTrust Governance Suite, DiliTrust offers a unified and secure platform, composed of different modules to meet the growing needs of legal departments and governance bodies of large corporates, SMEs and public entities. The SaaS editor supports more than 2 000 organizations in their efforts to automate processes, improve performance and protect their strategic and sensitive data. DiliTrust enables them to achieve these objectives, notably through a board portal for managing board meetings, as well as modules for managing legal entities and managing contracts and litigations.

In 2021, the group, which employs more than 160 people worldwide, achieved a turnover of nearly 20 million euros, half of which was generated internationally, with an increase of around 30% per year in recent years. Already present in France, Canada, Italy, the Middle East and Africa, DiliTrust has also strengthened its presence in Spain and expanded its operations in Latin America following the acquisition of Gobertia last year.

Under the agreement, the consortium of investors would become the group’s core shareholder by investing more than €130 million. Calcium Capital, which has been a financial investor in DiliTrust since 2017, is selling all of its stake.

DiliTrust is continuing to expand by gaining new clients in France and abroad, and it intends to complement this expansion with an active buy-and-build strategy, with the support of its new financial partners. Cathay Capital, Eurazeo, Sagard NewGen and DiliTrust’s management team intend to leverage the company’s best-in-class skillset, strong reputation and robust underlying market growth in order to achieve their shared ambition of accelerating DiliTrust’s growth and build a global leader in legal and governance solutions.
