Insurance Software M&A 2013 Q1 Update
Published: March 2013
This report provides an update on the M&A activity in the insurance software sector with an overview of the main participants, information about recent transactions, and predictions for future activity.
With the recent acquisitions of Camilion by SAP, AQS by the Genstar Capital-backed Insurity, and IVANS by Applied Systems, M&A in the sector has picked up recently. SAP’s acquisition is the first serious move into the insurance vertical solutions space by a global technology firm since Oracle bought AdminServer and Skywire in 2008.
Above it all looms the successful IPO of Guidewire, demonstrating that strategic acquisitions are not the only potential exit for investors.
