With the acquisition of V-NEO, GFT strengthens its expertise in the insurance sector, expands its market position in North America and gains a new location in Belgium. The company is expected to generate revenues of around EUR 15.5 million in the current financial year (1 August 2017 to 31 July 2018). Earnings before taxes (EBT) is expected to reach approximately EUR 2.6 million. The purchase price will be paid in cash and the two parties agreed not to disclose the purchase price.

Further details will be disclosed in the Half-year Financial Report published on 9 August 2018. At the contract signing, Marika Lulay, CEO of GFT Technologies SE, stressed that: "The acquisition underpins our international growth strategy and medium-term forecast for 2022. The technological know-how and the client base of V-NEO are a perfect fit for GFT - as are its highly skilled on-site client consultants in North America and Europe, as well as the nearshore development teams in Canada." Reinforcement with regard to property, casualty and life insurance The insurance industry is facing enormous challenges in the midst of the digital transformation process. According to Gartner, only a few insurers worldwide have initiated their digital transformation so far; and such changes can take up to ten years to achieve. V-NEO has in-depth expertise - especially regarding digital solutions for property, casualty and life insurance. This includes both strategic consulting as well as all steps from initial design to the implementation of solutions. The company boasts a high customer loyalty rate with national and international clients, driven by its bespoke architecture enterprise solutions and projects for process optimisation and digital transformation. The acquisition enables GFT to complement its current services portfolio for property and casualty insurance with expanded and new solutions for the life insurance sector. V-NEO has already received numerous innovation awards for its agile integration of Guidewire services. As one of the largest independent North American services providers for the Guidewire insurance platform, the company currently generates around two-thirds of its revenue with this offering. V-NEO also works on a major Canadian life insurance project with OIPA Oracle platform. These services will now be combined with GFT's existing insurance services in order to expand its international client base. Innovation in the DNA of both companies V-NEO was the first North American firm to initiate an 'Insurance Innovation and Performance Centre', which is specifically designed for innovation development and the training of employees in the insurance sector. The centre puts into practice the development, piloting and market roll-out of new insurance solutions involving all aspects of artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things. Combined with the existing global Digital Innovation Labs of GFT, the innovation management within GFT will be enhanced and taken to the next level. Diversification of client portfolio Alain Lamothe, CEO of V-NEO stated that: "With our deep insurance know-how and our technological skills, we are not just a perfect fit for each other, but will also help diversify GFT's customer portfolio with our long-lasting client relationships. The international GFT presence enables us to recognise global industry trends at an early stage, tapping into the market potential together, both with our clients and our partners." Lulay added: "The acquisition of V-NEO is a decisive step towards positioning GFT as a leading IT partner for the digital transformation of the insurance industry, as it is already for the banking sector."
