Performio, an Irvine-based provider of sales commission software, has raised $75 million in new funding.

The company announced Tuesday that growth equity firm JMI Equity led the funding, with JMI chairman Paul Barber and vice president Jack Duane also joining Performio’s board of directors. The new investment will go toward advancing the company’s technology and meeting the needs of its growing client base, it said.


Performio’s cloud-based sales performance management platform allows companies to oversee and automate their incentive compensation—a task that many firms have traditionally managed manually on spreadsheets. Its customers include AstraZeneca, ChargePoint, Johnson & Johnson and Vodafone.

Founded in Australia in 2006, Performio built up its business in the Asia-Pacific region before opening its global headquarters in Irvine in 2017 and subsequently growing its North American customer base. The company said it grew its revenues 77% year-on-year and more than doubled its number of employees globally in 2021. Last month, it announced the appointments of former Salesforce executive Neil Graham as chief revenue officer and former Datometry executive Dmitri Korablev as chief technology officer.

While private capital funding at large

has slowed down in 2022, local software startups and SaaS-focused funds have continued to raise money through the first half of the year—a trend that speaks to the sector’s ongoing growth and appeal.
