Marlin portfolio company ProcessUnity acquires AI/NLP technology from ISMS Solutions

LOS ANGELES, November 2, 2022 – Marlin Equity Partners (“Marlin”) is pleased to announce that it has acquired Artificial Intelligence and Natural Language Processing technology from ISMS Solutions (“ISMS”), a leading provider of technology-assisted compliance solutions. The patented technology will be integrated with ProcessUnity, an existing Marlin portfolio company, extending ProcessUnity’s Third-Party Risk Management platform and allowing organizations to assess large volumes of vendor due diligence responses more efficiently.

“Organizations spend a significant portion of their overall effort reviewing and verifying vendor assessment questionnaires and the associated policies and procedures that accompany them. It’s a labor-intensive process that lacks uniformity across teams,” said Sean Cronin, Chief Executive Officer at ProcessUnity. “Our acquisition of the ISMS technology will apply meaningful artificial intelligence capabilities to vendor due diligence data, quickly comparing and scoring assessment information against established industry standards.”

Peter Chung, a managing director at Marlin, said, “ProcessUnity has identified a compelling use case for artificial intelligence that solves one of the toughest tasks associated with pre- and post-contract vendor due diligence.” Hemal Patel, a principal at Marlin, added, “We’re excited to add ISMS’ capabilities to the ProcessUnity platform and extend the company’s position in the market.”

Massumi + Consoli LLP served as legal advisor to ProcessUnity. TD Securities served as financial advisor, and Loeb & Loeb LLP served as legal advisor to ISMS.
