DLA Piper represented EIS, a core and digital platform provider for insurers, in a growth investment of more than US$100 million from TPG, a global alternative asset firm.
Founded in 2008, EIS is an insurance software company with an open, flexible platform of core systems and digital solutions that allow insurers to accelerate and scale innovation, launch products faster, deliver new revenue channels and create powerful customer experiences. The new funding will be used to continue to accelerate product development across the spectrum of risk, health and wealth, and to support geographic expansion.
“We were pleased to advise EIS on this investment, utilizing our strong understanding of the insurtech industry and our extensive experience advising emerging growth companies on complex transactions to achieve a successful outcome. This funding will allow EIS to continue expanding on its innovative platform to help insurers operate even more effectively,” said Curtis Mo, the DLA Piper partner who led the firm’s deal team.
