Arlington Capital Partners Agrees to Sell MicroPact to Tyler Technologies
Arlington Capital Partners (“Arlington Capital”) today announced that Tyler Technologies, Inc. (NYSE:TYL | “Tyler Technologies”) is acquiring its portfolio company MicroPact, Inc. (“MicroPact” or the “Company”), a leading provider of specialized, vertically oriented case management and business process management (BPM) applications for government.
Founded in 1997 by CEO Kristoffer Collo, MicroPact was formerly known as MicroPact Engineering and since 2012 has operated as MicroPact through several affiliated entities.

“We are very happy to join forces with Tyler Technologies, the clear leader in public sector software technology with an outstanding company culture focused on excellence in all things, including client-centric service,” said Collo. “Tyler and MicroPact share a common vision and passion for transforming government by empowering organizations with solutions that create efficiencies and abilities to quickly solve difficult problems.”
Michael Lustbader, a Managing Partner at Arlington Capital, said “MicroPact has invested heavily in its product portfolio during our ownership, ultimately achieving market leadership in strategic verticals within the public sector case management software market. Through its innovative technology and knowledge of the government marketplace, the Company is uniquely positioned to expand Tyler’s addressable market while also introducing an additional product portfolio to its core customer base.
Dan Smith, the CFO of MicroPact, said “Under Arlington Capital, MicroPact established itself as a market leader by expanding its customer base, growing its differentiated technologies and integrating its product portfolio after the strategic merger with Iron Data. The partnership with Tyler Technologies will unlock key opportunities for MicroPact, including augmented sales reach, additional customer touchpoints, enhanced software utilization and accelerating a promising partner program.”
Malcolm Little, a Principal at Arlington Capital, said “Tyler’s acquisition of MicroPact, combining two leading public sector software providers, represents another example of Arlington’s use of transformative M&A to build strategically valuable businesses.”
