MRI Software acquires lease and facilities management firm AMTdirect
MRI Software, a global real estate technology firm, has acquired AMTdirect, a North Carolina-based provider of lease accounting, lease administration and facilities management solutions for corporate occupiers and lessees.
Clients across a wide range of industries use AMT’s technology to organise and manage their lease portfolios while ensuring compliance with global lease accounting standards, such as FASB, IASB, and GASB.
“Today’s businesses require technology to adapt to the changing nature of work,” says Patrick Ghilani, Chief Executive Officer of MRI Software. “Commercial tenants must efficiently manage their space to provide a safe, flexible experience for employees, while also strategically managing their leases to maintain compliance with new lease accounting standards.”
The acquisition further reinforces MRI’s commitment to the occupier sector and increases its market presence. MRI’s solutions serve the needs of all parties in a building, covering property owners, operators, and tenants. The company now serves approximately 2,000 occupier clients worldwide.
Ghilani adds: “We’re excited to welcome AMTdirect to the MRI family. With this acquisition, we’re further increasing the depth of our offering for corporate tenants, while enabling AMT’s clients to take advantage of solutions that complement lease management, such as lease administration, space management, and AI-powered lease abstraction.”
“We are eager to begin this new chapter,” says Jeff Ralyea, CEO of AMTdirect. “MRI is a pioneer in the industry and has a stellar reputation for innovation. As part of MRI, we can give our clients access to a broader variety of tools that will fuel business growth.”
Kirkland & Ellis served as MRI’s legal advisor. AMTdirect was an investment held by Luminate Capital Partners
