The combined company—with global presence across North America, Europe and Asia—has more than 750 employees globally and approximately $150 million in revenues following this transaction.

"Velocity is a market leader in cloud application services and has a strong track record of continuously expanding its product offering and global customer base," said Kyle Ryland, a Managing Director of Silver Lake Sumeru.  "We are very pleased to partner with Titan and further enhance Velocity's customer platform and employee base."
