On 22 November 2016, the company announced one of its biggest moves to date, deploying R500 million to buy 100% of Australian company Recoveries Corporation Group and further acquisitions of local businesses Roadcover and the Beancounter. Recoveries Corporation, a provider of consumer customer management solutions, provides a strong entry point into Australia and an opportunity to expand geographically. Road Cover offers monthly subscriptions for sale to clients to access legal and administration services associated with vehicle insurance, and will be integrated into the existing services offered by Transaction Capital. Meanwhile, Beancounter provides full outsourced accounting, payroll and tax services, giving the group exposure to the specialist, cloud accounting services market in South Africa.
