Livingbridge, one of the UK’s leading mid-market private equity investors, is pleased to announce the successful sale of its investee, Red Box Recorders Group Limited (“Red Box”) to Uniphore Technologies Inc (“Uniphore”).
The combination brings together Red Box, the leading dedicated voice specialist with over 30 years’ experience in empowering organizations to capture, secure and unlock the value of enterprise-wide voice with Uniphore, the global leader in conversational artificial intelligence (“AI”) and automation. Red Box will continue to operate from its base in Nottingham, UK.

The combination with Uniphore brings clear strategic benefits, accelerating value for the group’s customers in a dynamic and fast developing market. We are hugely thankful to the leadership team and skilled employees of Red Box and wish them every success in the future.”
Richard Stevenson, Red Box CEO said: “The support from Livingbridge to invest in our latest platform, Conversa, has been instrumental in Red Box’s transformation, allowing us to respond to and exploit new opportunities and service global enterprise customers. They have been strong and value-added partners for the business throughout. We are excited about the next chapter as part of Uniphore as AI and automation becomes increasingly embedded in the way businesses operate and grow.”
