Pierre-Emmanuel Chevalier, corporate partner, Natacha Baratier and Chloé Métivier, corporate associates, Thomas Verdeil, tax partner and Jean Barrouillet, tax associate, advised the sellers and the management of Limonetik on its acquisition by Thunes.

Founded in Paris in 2008, Limonetik’s platform has over 14,000 merchants, marketplaces and fintech players and has processed more than EUR 2 billion a year.

Cross-border payments leader Thunes acquires Limonetik : this acquisition move will complement existing Thunes Cross-Border Payments solutions by enabling businesses to get paid in 70 countries, using over 285 local payment methods such as mobile wallets, payment by instalments (BNPL), QR code payments and more. The solution will be known as Thunes Collections.

Limonetik is one of the earliest developers of an alternative payment methods platform suitable for international merchants and marketplaces. And like Thunes, the firm closely partners with payment service providers and financial institutions. Processing more than EUR 2 billion a year, Limonetik is trusted by over 14,000 merchants, marketplaces and fintech players, including Deliveroo, Uber Eats, Veepee, CMA – CGM, Worldline – Ingenico, ACI, Amadeus and Natixis. Founded in Paris in 2008, Limonetik is led by CEO & co-founder Christophe Bourbier, a multiple-time entrepreneur and payment space expert. Today, Limonetik counts 50 employees who will become Thunesters.

Squire Patton Boggs (Tony Reed, partner and Dan Hasset, associate) advised Thunes.
