LOS ANGELES, May 10, 2022 – Marlin Equity Partners (“Marlin”) is pleased to announce that it has acquired Enyx S.A. (“Enyx”), a leading provider of FPGA-based, high-performance trading solutions for the financial markets. The company’s comprehensive product offering provides FPGA-powered solutions for numerous financial technology applications, including market data acquisition and normalization, order execution and network connectivity management, as well as a development environment for customers to create customizable applications. Enyx will be merged with Exegy, an existing Marlin portfolio company, further expanding Exegy’s global leadership in FPGA technology with a more robust solution for its global financial services customers.
“For years, financial services firms were faced with an unsatisfying choice for their trading infrastructure: faster time-to-market with off-the-shelf components, or a more time and resource intensive in-house custom build,” said Jim O’Donnell, CEO of Exegy. “We are looking forward to integrating the Enyx product with Exegy to create a combined solution that removes any ‘build or buy’ limitations.”
“Ten years ago, FPGA-based technologies were out of reach for most trading firms and reserved only for those with deep expertise,” said Arnaud Derasse, CEO of Enyx. “Enyx transformed the existing model by providing off-the-shelf components of the technology to a more comprehensive range of users. The combination of two technology powerhouses, Exegy and Enyx, will enable trading firms to reduce time-to-market and create commercial success.”
“Enyx is a highly strategic and complementary addition to Exegy’s technology suite and further positions Exegy as a leading FPGA-based player in financial services and FinTech,” said Nick Lukens, a managing director at Marlin. “We are excited to partner with the Enyx team and continue to drive excellent outcomes for their customer base with access to a broader product suite.”
