Cybersecurity company Kape Technologies has announced that it has successfully raised gross proceeds of $220 million in a share placing on the London Stock Exchange.

Kape said that “the net proceeds of the fundraise are intended to be used to accelerate the Group's growth through acquisitions, the Board of Kape believing that global market conditions have given rise to a number of highly attractive potential acquisition opportunities at compelling valuations.”

Kape made headlines in 2021 when it acquired ExpressVPN for nearly $1 billion in September 2021 and Webselenese, a privately held Israeli company, for $149 million.
