Equiniti has worked in partnership with TransGlobal since the launch of Equiniti International Payments in 2011, and so the software is already fully integrated within existing operations. This transaction is a good example of the progress we continue to make in expanding the range of services we offer clients, thereby driving growth through high quality acquisitions.”
