Vista Credit Partners, a subsidiary of Vista Equity Partners focused on the enterprise software, data, and technology market has made a $35 million investment in TCGplayer, a technology company focused in the collectibles industry and operator of an online marketplace for trading card games.
“TCGplayer is a business at an inflection point. Having successfully capitalized on increased collector demand, the Company is now poised for rapid expansion as it continues to build a deep vertical connective tissue joining hobbyists, retailers and publishers,” said David Flannery, president of Vista Credit Partners. “We are pleased to support TCGplayer as it enters this next phase of accelerated growth and continues to revolutionize the $25 billion hobby and collectibles market with cutting-edge technology and innovative solutions.”
“We have maintained triple digit growth for the last 12 months and have been fortunate to fuel all of our hiring needs through our own profitability,” said Chedy Hampson, founder and CEO of TCGplayer. “Now as hobbyists return to their local stores that double as community centers, we anticipate another tailwind from in-store tournaments and player and artist signings. This capital from Vista ensures TCGplayer will be ready with the tools, data and technology platform to support the entire hobby community.”
