Yorkshire fintech company finds new home with acquisition by student accommodation platform
A Yorkshire fintech company has announced that it has been “quietly but audaciously” acquired by a UK student accommodation platform.
Split The Bills, based in Leeds, has confirmed its acquisition by Unihomes, which works with letting agents across 25 cities.
The platform has seen a 60 per cent increase in users year on year, with its acquisition of Split The Bills adding 160,000 students to its clientele.
Bradley Cox, co-founder of UniHomes, said:“2020 has been a challenging year for everyone, this acquisition would not have been possible without the hard work and dedication of the teams in both businesses.
“I’m very proud of what we have achieved over the past 5 years. With the addition of Split The Bills, we look forward to the next chapter of our journey and we’re very excited for 2021!”
Phil Greaves, also co-founder of UniHomes, commented: “Our goal is to become synonymous as the go-to accommodation portal for students, providing the best choice of available properties with the added bonus that bills are included.
“Our vast network of letting agent partners recognise the power of our offering.
“Adding UniHomes to an agent’s list of portal partners opens the market up to them considerably and, even better, we’re completely free of charge to agents.”
