“In Roper we have found a partner who shares both our vision and our values,” said Vertafore Chief Executive Officer Amy Zupon. “Their acquisition of Vertafore is validation of our strategy to provide innovative and critical solutions to our customers.

We are excited to have found a permanent home for our great company.”

Since 2016, Vertafore has added more than 500 employees and improved its customer net promoter score by 200%, while meaningfully increasing its annual recurring sales and investment in its products. All of these initiatives have been done in support of the company mission to automate and simplify insurance distribution to drive value for their customers. As part of the Roper family of companies, Vertafore will continue to be led by Amy Zupon as its chief executive officer.

“Roper’s businesses consistently have clear niche market leadership, strong management teams, high customer retention and a track record of consistent growth. Vertafore meets all of our criteria and we are thrilled for them to join the Roper family,” said Neil Hunn, President and CEO of Roper Technologies. “We’re especially impressed by Amy and her team, their commitment to customer success, and their long-term focus to drive innovation across the insurance industry. The demand from their customers to simplify complex and outdated processes creates multiple drivers for long-term growth, and we are excited to invest in that innovation.”

Both Roper and Vertafore share a belief in and commitment to the current and future strength of the insurance industry and the independent agency, and the critical role that technology will play across the entire distribution channel.

Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC served as lead financial advisor, BofA Securities and Credit Suisse also served as financial advisors, and Kirkland & Ellis LLP served as legal advisor to Vertafore.
