Montreal, June 20, 2017 - Xpertdoc Technologies Inc., a Microsoft Gold Partner and leader in customer communications management solutions (CCM), today announced that they secured CAD $2.285 million (US $1.725 million) in funding from BDC Capital, a wholly owned subsidiary of Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC).
BDC Capital's mezzanine financing enabled Xpertdoc to invest $500,000 in the construction of a new building designed to support their growth objectives, as well as attract and retain the best IT professionals. As one of the fastest growing companies in Canada in 2016, Xpertdoc has sustained a 40% growth year-over-year for six consecutive years.
"Xpertdoc is doing an amazing job in successfully competing in a global market dominated by giants such as Adobe and OpenText," said Jean-Philippe Poissant, Director, Growth Capital and Business Transfer for Northern Quebec at BDC Capital. "Their immense growth over a six-year period is fueled by very large sales in the United States. BDC Capital's mezzanine financing will enable Xpertdoc to accelerate the execution of their ambitious growth plan, which includes business acquisitions and the creation of multiple positions in the Greater Montreal area."
The financing secured by Xpertdoc also gave the company an opportunity to set up a Cooperative of Employee Shareholders; Xpertdoc employees were able to purchase 16% of the company's shares to become minority shareholders.
