Fort Capital Partners is pleased to announce that Safe Software Inc (“Safe” or the “Company”) has received a strategic growth investment from JMI Equity Partners (“JMI”).
The investment will support continued expansion of Safe Software’s enterprise solutions offering and the Company’s strong growth trajectory.
Safe is the creator of Feature Manipulation Engine (“FME”), an industry-leading spatial data integration platform with a robust and comprehensive suite of tools designed to make data more accessible, usable, and valuable. Over 20,000 organizations worldwide trust FME technology for their enterprise integration solutions. Through Safe Software’s international partner network, FME is used in 120+ countries around the world and has been localized into multiple languages.
Safe was founded in 1993 by Don Murray and Dale Lutz. Their vision was to simplify the process of integrating and transforming data across different systems, formats, and applications – to bridge the gap and enable seamless data interoperability. Over the years, FME has evolved into a unique enterprise integration platform and today, no other solution comes close to FME’s spatial, no-code, and deploy-anywhere capabilities.
“Our new investment partners at JMI have been following our journey for well over a decade, and they love what we have created and want to help us build upon our solid 30-year foundation as we enter an exciting next chapter,” comments Don Murray, Co-Founder & CEO, Safe Software. “Dale Lutz and I have built a phenomenal company in Safe Software, and I couldn’t be prouder of our team’s achievements over the last three decades.”
“Safe Software brings a groundbreaking and unique solution for enterprise data needs and represents a true industry success story. We have known Don and Dale for many years, and we are thrilled to be a part of Safe’s future,” says Brian Hersman, General Partner, JMI Equity.
Don Murray will continue to lead the business as CEO and the rest of the leadership team will remain in their current roles. The Company anticipates no updates to its day-to-day operations and will remain focused on serving clients globally.
Fort Capital Partners acted as financial advisor to Safe Software for the transaction.
