Trax Closes US$125 Million Investment Round Led by Boyu Capital
  SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend  
   

SINGAPORE, July 2, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

Trax, the leading provider of computer vision and analytics solutions for retail, announced today it has completed its largest investment round to date, raising US$125 million. The transaction was led by Boyu Capital , one of the largest private equity investment firms in Greater China. DC Thomson, a leading media organization from the UK, also joined the investment round. A portion of the transaction will be used to buy some early investors' shares.

Headquartered in Singapore, Trax is revolutionizing the retail industry by delivering a single source of shelf truth for Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) companies and retailers. Founded in 2010, Trax counts Warburg Pincus and Investec among its shareholders.

To date, the company has raised approximately US$235 million in total funding and operates in over 50 countries with more than 175 client engagements. Trax provides in-store execution, market-measurement and data-science solutions for CPG brands and retailers by harnessing its cutting-edge computer vision platform to process photos taken in store with mobile devices to deliver real-time, granular shelf- and store-level insights.

In an alliance last year with Nielsen (NYSE: NLSN), the leading global information and measurement company, Trax introduced Shelf Intelligence Suite, offering brands an unprecedented level of shelf insights to continuously measure and improve their shelf strategy and execution.

In addition to working with leading CPG companies worldwide, Trax is currently engaged in several digital transformation pilot projects with global retailers aimed at providing continuous shelf tracking with wireless IoT cameras. Trax said it will use this latest round of funding to further support global expansion of the company and accelerate mass-market deployment of its retail solutions. A core area of expansion will be Greater China, where Trax has already established a strong market presence serving major global brands.

"We could not be more thrilled to have Boyu Capital as a major backer of Trax alongside Warburg Pincus, our largest shareholder," said Joel Bar-El, Trax CEO and co-founder. "Their experience and insights into the scale and pace of China's retail technology environment will be incredibly valuable. The injection of funds from Boyu will allow us to drive continued innovation of our technologies at our computer vision center of excellence in Tel Aviv, Israel and to explore establishing an additional engineering center in China."

Dror Feldheim, Trax chief commercial officer and co-founder, added: "We are crossing yet another inflection point in our global growth and our journey in driving the digital transformation of physical retail. The adoption of our solutions and services is moving at lightspeed in our core markets of the US, Europe, Asia and Latin America. Partnering with Boyu and having access to their vast network and deep expertise adds real firepower towards the realization of our vision."

Joey Chen, managing director of Boyu Capital, commented: "The investment in Trax is driven by our conviction in the compelling value proposition of new technology solutions that enable digitalization of brick and mortar retail. We are impressed by the wide recognition of Trax's cloud-based one-stop-shop solutions by the world's largest CPG companies and retailers. Compared to developed markets such as Europe and the United States, the use of digital retail solutions by Chinese consumer goods companies and retailers is still in its early stages. And with the world's largest retail market and number of outlets, we see a promising future for Trax's development in China."
