DALLAS - June 1, 2021 – TriumphPay, a division of TBK Bank, SSB, announced today that it has closed the previously announced acquisition of HubTran, a cloud-based provider of automation software for the transportation industry’s back-office.

With our open network, we will create frictionless presentment, settlement and payment of invoices for the benefit of all participants. With the close of this acquisition, we are ready to execute our strategy to create a seamless payment experience.”

Aaron P. Graft, chief executive officer of Triumph Bancorp, said, “Through our open loop payment network, TriumphPay will become the invisible pipe that allows parties on both sides of a transaction to share structured data instantly between them. Efficiency, speed, and fraud mitigation for transportation payments take a quantum leap forward with this acquisition.”

As a result of this acquisition, HubTran will operate as a product of TriumphPay. TriumphPay and HubTran will continue to operate as independent brands until the full integration of the platform is completed, which is expected to occur in the fourth quarter of 2021.

Under the terms of the agreement, TriumphPay acquired HubTran for $97 million in cash.
