Payment technology company Nuvei (NVEI) has closed a record-breaking initial public offering on the Toronto Stock Exchange.

Based in Montreal, the company is the largest private and non-bank payment processor in Canada, processing tens of billions every year. Nuvei has become extremely successful since its founding in 2003, by supporting 450 local and alternative payment methods in nearly 150 currencies.

Through the listing began last week on an "if, as and when basis", the company finally closed its IPO yesterday and commenced normal trading.

The company’s IPO on the TSX consisted of a treasury offering by the company, as well as a secondary offering. The secondary offering was by certain funds managed by Novacap Management, the selling shareholders.

The shares were issued to certain employees, customers, suppliers, and other business partners, for further proceeds of approximately C$37.7 million.
