K1 Investment Management Realizes Investment in Community Investors, Inc.

Los Angeles, CA, September 18, 2015 –(– K1 Investment Management (“K1”) announced today that it realized its investment in Community Investors, Inc. (“CII”), a leading provider of software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions to the residential real estate industry. CII offers cloud-based software providing community associations and homeowners with transparency into board and community operations, security through visitor management and access control, access to home warranty information, and connections to top-tier local real estate agents.

Tim Vollman, Chief Executive Officer of CII, noted that “CII has developed a tremendous portfolio of SaaS solutions which automate manual tasks and increase productivity across the residential real estate industry. The combination of sector focus, direct sourcing and operational best practices that K1 brought to bear has produced a true industry leader.”

In February 2013, K1 formed CII by combining the two market leading providers of community operations software for homeowner associations. In 2014, CII further extended its platform with the consolidation of additional solutions with community security and homeowner services functionality.

Taylor Beaupain, Managing Partner at K1, commented “The sale of CII validates K1’s strategy of investing in growth stage enterprise software companies which provide mission-critical systems of record. K1’s partnership with Community Investors, Inc. demonstrates the multiplier effect of scaling an already-successful business through a combination of organic growth and complementary acquisitions. Community associations play a critical role in the residential real estate marketplace and we are pleased to see CII emerge as the leading consolidator in the space. We wish CII and its management team continued success in the future.”
