After investing US$299 million to buy Remessa Online, it had other acquisitions in the pipeline and was opening offices in countries in the region.

Ebanx received a US$430 million contribution led by Advent International in June last year. The company even filed a secret US IPO request a few months later, which could value it at nearly $10 billion. However, with the decline of companies with a strong technological bias in recent months, the stock offering seems increasingly distant.
