  • Cédric Bru will remain CEO of Taulia; SAP CFO Luka Mucic will become Chairman of the Board
  • Founded in 2009, Taulia is recognized for its leading technology and has one of the broadest platform and solution portfolios in the working capital management market; the Company has also built a strong ecosystem of financial partners who provide the necessary funding, including J.P. Morgan, UniCredit and other high-profile banks

Significance of Transaction
