“We’re thrilled to welcome our new retail partners to the Flexiti network and look forward to working closely with them to drive sales and customer loyalty through our industry-leading point-of-sale financing platform.”

As part of the deal, Glovealive Capital will make a $50mn investment in Flexiti, giving the private equity firm a controlling stake in the company having been a founding investor.
