When Advent International and Bain Capital carved out Worldpay from RBS in 2010, the company had strong customer heritage, global scale and a first mover position in e-commerce, but it needed a new strategic direction and significant investment to improve its technology and customer offering. The private equity firms separated the business from its parent, in what was a highly complex process, helped management redefine Worldpay’s strategy, assisted with seven acquisitions and supported a significant technology investment programme. As a result, earnings grew 11% a year between 2012 and 2014. Worldpay went public in October 2015 with a market capitalisation of £4.8bn, making it the UK's fourth largest IPO ever. Worldpay was subsequently sold to Fidelity National Information Services in 2019, in a deal worth $43bn.
