Manatron is a leading provider of integrated, enterprise-level property tax solutions for state and local governments. The company’s software manages the entire property life cycle, which includes deed recording, land records, GIS (Geographic Information System) integration, valuation, assessment administration, personal property, business licenses, cashiering, tax billing and collection, delinquents and tax sales and e-government. Manatron serves customers throughout the United States and in Canada, South Africa and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Over its three-year ownership of the company, through internal growth and six strategic acquisitions, Thoma Bravo was able to help Manatron grow its earnings by a factor of almost 5x, increase its operating margin almost 6x and expand from a local provider of tax software in a few core markets to the leading provider of end-to-end property systems globally. The company was sold in 2011 to Thomson Reuters (NYSE: TRI), a $13B global information services company.
