We are very impressed with EPS’ portfolio of mission critical products catering specifically to the needs of customers in the packaging and printing industries. We are excited to partner with Gaby and his team, leverage our experience as investors in enterprise software and our historical success in executing carve out transactions, in order to further expand the EPS value proposition to its customers and further accelerate its growth trajectory through technological innovation and a customer centric mindset as a standalone company."
