QX Global Group (“QX”) is a leading provider of business process management (“BPM”) services. QX has built a uniquely integrated platform leveraging its BPM expertise, consulting services, and automation technologies (including artificial intelligence) to unlock value for its customers. As QX seeks to expand further its platform capabilities and global growth footprint, it is pleased to announce that it has secured a growth investment of £100 million+ from Long Ridge Equity Partners (“Long Ridge”).

QX specializes in business & digital transformation, BPM, and consulting services within the accounting,
recruitment, real estate, manufacturing, public sector, higher education, healthcare, consumer packaged goods, retail, and utilities and energy sectors. Based on its unique capabilities and specialized approach, the company saw revenue grow by approximately 30% over the past twelve months, and is rapidly emerging as a global leader in the space.

QX spent over a year considering the attributes of a potential investment partner and met a number of
potential investment firms as part of the process. Ultimately, the QX leadership team hand-picked Long Ridge because of their experience in the tech-enabled services industry and excellent track record partnering with fast-growing, high-potential businesses like QX.

“The Long Ridge team brings a wealth of senior experience in the BPM and consulting sectors. I am so proud of everything that has been achieved at QX so far, and I couldn’t have asked for a more impressive and experienced investment partner to support the next stage of the QX growth story.
