Payment processing solutions developer Credorax Inc. has raised $40 million from FTV Capital, to give it a 20% stake in the company. Sources inform ”Globes” that that the financing round was held at a company value of almost $200 million.

Credorax CEO Benjamin Nachman founded the company in 2008. He was joined by Igal Rotem, who previously co-founded PowerDsine, which was acquired by MicroSemi Corporation (Nasdaq: MSCC) in 2007, and who serves as chairman. Credorax operates in one of the world’s more problematic fields in e-commerce in terms of performance and regulations – payment clearing technology. The company essentially functions as a virtual bank, offering solutions for e-commerce and m-commerce. It competes against some of the world’s biggest banks.

Credorax is the first known success in the Israeli financial technology (fintech) sector which targets the end-user rather than businesses. FTV Capital, which has invested in a small number of Israeli companies to date, has had one big success in the Israeli fintech sector to date: anti-fraud solutions developer Actimize, which was acquired by NICE Systems Ltd. (Nasdaq: NICE; TASE: NICE) in 2008.

Credorax has 160 employees. Headquartered outside Boston, it carries out most of its operations in Israel, and has offices in London, Tokyo, and Malta.
