MINNEAPOLIS (April 4, 2023) — Yukon Partners (“Yukon”), a provider of mezzanine capital for middle market private equity transactions, is pleased to announce its mezzanine and equity investment in Jitterbit, Inc. (“Jitterbit” or “the Company”), a global leader for empowering transformation through automation, to support the acquisition of Zudy, a leading provider of no-code / low-code application-development platforms for enterprise organizations. Jitterbit is a portfolio company of Audax Private Equity (“Audax”).
Zudy’s enterprise-grade application-development platform, Vinyl, is used by a wide variety of commercial and government enterprises, ranging from Optum, Otis Worldwide Corp., and the Department of Defense to retail and media organizations such as J. Crew Group and iHeartMedia. Vinyl enables businesses to build powerful, fully integrated, bi-directional applications through on-premise deployment without a single line of code.
This acquisition expands on Jitterbit’s existing capabilities in the no-code / low-code application-development space, further demonstrating the company’s commitment to providing a best-in-class suite of tools and services for integrating and automating business processes. The newly acquired platform complements Jitterbit’s existing solutions with additional choice and flexibility, making Jitterbit’s full suite of tools and services available via cloud deployment, on-prem installation or a hybrid approach.
“Jitterbit is well positioned in a large and growing market with strong industry tailwinds to support the Company’s impressive growth trajectory,” said Michael Furey, Partner of Yukon. “We are excited to partner with Audax and management to support Jitterbit’s continued expansion of its services and capabilities.”
Dorsey & Whitney LLP provided legal counsel to Yukon.
