Toronto – July 3, 2019
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
On July 1, 2019, H&R Block acquired Wave Financial, Inc. (“Wave”) for C$536M. Wave had been a client of GreenSky Capital in its previous incarnation as a broker/dealer. At that time, GreenSky advised Wave on its first two rounds of investment – the first through members of the GreenSky President’s Club, an Ontario-registered angel group, and the second through institutional financing. GreenSky is now affiliated with and manages several venture capital funds.
GreenSky would like to congratulate Kirk Simpson and the team at Wave, as well as the investors in our network who supported the company since its nascent days.
