RICHARDSON, Texas, (April 20, 2018) – RealPage, Inc. (NASDAQ: RP), a leading provider of software and data analytics to the real estate industry, today announced its agreement to acquire ClickPay, a comprehensive electronic payment platform servicing 2.3 million units across the multifamily, HOA, condominium and co-op segments of real estate. ClickPay significantly expands RealPage’s footprint into the HOA owner-occupied segment of real estate, broadens the company’s presence in the New York metropolitan market and solidifies the integration of its front-end leasing platform into third-party property management systems.
Adds nearly $1.0 billion to the company’s total addressable market. The HOA market is estimated to contain over 16 million units, and RealPage estimates that current and future solutions applicable to the market aggregate to a total opportunity of approximately $60 per unit per year. Including the HOA market, the holistic RealPage platform is expected to serve multiple segments of real estate, from rentals to owner-occupied units, totaling over 62 million units. Total current and future applicable solutions for those units represent nearly $205 per unit per year, for a total addressable market of over $12.7 billion.
Strengthens the company’s consumer-centric, front-end leasing platform. ClickPay, in concert with the recent acquisition of On-Site, combines functionality to attract, convert and retain renters integrated with popular third-party property management systems. The front end platform includes Property Websites, Contact Center, Online Leasing, CRM, Screening, Resident Portal and Payments.
Creates one of the largest payment processing platforms for real estate assets with over $55 billion of annual run-rate transaction volume.
Expands RealPage’s presence in the New York metropolitan market, complementing its recent acquisition of On-Site, the largest provider of tenant screening services in New York. ClickPay’s client base also represents a significant cross-sell opportunity for the RealPage platform.
Expands RealPage functionality to include lockbox and online banking capabilities, eliminating time-consuming and inefficient manual check processing.
“Expanding our payments solution to include ClickPay has the potential to further accelerate one of the fastest growing areas of our platform. According to data from the U.S. Census Bureau American Housing Survey, over $525 billion of rent is collected annually. Only a fraction of that volume is processed electronically, and we estimate that the vast majority of the U.S. still pays rent with a paper check. In addition, according to industry sources, owner-occupied units in the HOA segment are spending approximately $60 billion per year in fees. We believe our scale gives RealPage a strategic position to drive deeper client adoption across most real estate categories for payment solutions as well as other solutions that reduce costs and improve efficiency. In addition, I believe ClickPay and our recent acquisition of On-Site together unlock a significant opportunity to attract, convert and retain renters for clients utilizing property management systems outside of the RealPage ecosystem.”
RealPage is a leading global provider of software and data analytics to the real estate industry. Clients use its platform to improve operating performance and increase capital returns. Founded in 1998 and headquartered in Richardson, Texas, RealPage currently serves over 12,400 clients worldwide from offices in North America, Europe and Asia.
