FISC Global and FISC Limited – automotive technology acquisition set to accelerate growth

27 September 2021

Our M&A and private equity team has advised on the sale of FISC Global and FISC Limited to private equity-backed Keyloop.

The client

Through its proprietary software solutions, FISC is a leading provider of customer retention and finance and insurance compliance services to the UK automotive sector. Its market-leading platforms, eMaster and F&I tracker are integrated with 14 OEMs and are implemented across a combined 1,700 dealerships globally.

Keyloop is a leading provider of Dealer Management Systems to the global automotive segment, supporting over 16,000 dealerships across 90 countries. The acquisition represents the third investment by Keyloop since it was carved out of CDK following an investment from Francisco Partners in March 2021. 

The transaction identifies a strategic future partner for the company as it looks to embark on its next stage of growth through the acceleration of product development and international expansion strategies.

RSM’s solution

We worked closely with the shareholder and management teams within FISC Global and FISC to prepare the companies for the transaction event. We led the buyer origination, marketing, negotiations, and project management through to completion. 

Transaction team: James Wild, Nick Wyatt, and James Smith.


‘The acquisition by Keyloop provides FISC with the geographic footprint and resources to speed up its international growth and product development. The RSM team provided the FISC management team with first-class end-to-end corporate advice which was invaluable in finding the right partner and making the transaction as seamless as possible.’
