Tyler Technologies Will Purchase Rapid Financial Solutions

Tyler Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: TYL) announced today it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Rapid Financial Solutions (Rapid), a leading provider of reliable, scalable, and secure payments with best-in-class card issuance and digital disbursement capabilities. The purchase price is approximately $68 million in cash and Tyler stock, subject to certain customary adjustments at closing. The acquisition is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2022.

Through this acquisition, Tyler will offer Rapid’s payments platform to local, state, and federal government clients to enhance their payments disbursement process and improve the timeliness and accuracy of their transactions with consumers. Rapid will join Tyler’s Payments business unit, which is part of Tyler’s NIC Division.

“As a leader in the payments solutions market for 20 years, we understand our client’s challenges when it comes to disbursing payments. This includes required paperwork, processing paper checks, and the ability to provide immediate access of funds to recipients,” said Elizabeth Proudfit, president of Tyler’s NIC Division. “The acquisition of Rapid allows us to offer our public sector clients a proven and trusted payments platform which makes disbursing these payments easy, quick, and secure.”

Rapid is uniquely positioned to scale as jurisdictions are moving away from cash and paper checks to respond to consumers’ timely settlement expectations. Its more than 1,500 customers nationwide include courts, county offices, and correctional facilities, who use Rapid’s solutions to make payments related to juries, restitution, inmate release, and probation. Tyler serves approximately 7,200 clients in the payments space, helping them process 455 million transactions representing $28.9 billion in 2021.

“Over the last few years, in particular, there has been tremendous demand at the federal, state, and local levels for our payments platform solutions. We couldn’t be more excited to be joining Tyler at this time,” said Daren Jackson, founder, and chief executive officer of Rapid. “Our two organizations have a common focus on continuous innovation and a shared passion for making customer interactions stronger and more secure. We look forward to expanding on our payments success with Tyler as we serve the public sector together.”

Logan, Utah-based Rapid was founded in 2010. Management and staff will become part of Tyler’s NIC Division, and current employees will remain in their office locations.
