Real Capital Analytics Raises $115 Million From Susquehanna

NEW YORK — Real Capital Analytics, Inc. (RCA), a provider of commercial real estate (CRE) data and analytics, has raised $115 million from Susquehanna Growth Equity (SGE).

“This investment marks a new stage in our evolution and positions RCA for continued growth well into the future,” said Bob White, RCA’s founder and CEO.   “My team and I are confident that SGE will provide tremendous support, expertise, and financial flexibility to RCA.”

Founded in 2000 and based in NY, RCA provides timely and reliable transaction information and analysis covering asset prices, capital flows and investment trends for the commercial property industry. Across the globe, the most active investors, lenders, brokers and advisors depend on RCA’s comprehensive data and unique insight to formulate investment strategy, assess risk, source new opportunities and execute transactions. RCA’s global database of commercial property transactions spans 172 countries, covering more than $18 trillion of transactions linked to over 200,000 investor and lender profiles.

“RCA is the clear leader in commercial property transaction information,” says Scott Feldman, Managing Director of SGE. “We’ve gotten to know Bob White and the RCA team over the last decade and could not be more excited to support RCA as it continues to transform the commercial real estate industry.”

The investment is the largest ever growth financing garnered by a commercial real estate technology and information business. The SGE investment was comprised of Series B equity as well as debt.  Proceeds were used in part to redeem Series A shares issued in 2007 to a unit of Daily Mail and General Trust plc. Following the transaction, RCA founder Bob White will continue in his current role as CEO and, along with RCA employees, maintain a controlling stake in the company.
