Epicor to acquire assets of Cogita Holdings Ltd.

Dublin, Calif. -- Epicor Software Corp., announced it has entered into an agreement to acquire substantially all of the operating assets and intellectual property of New Zealand-based partner Cogita Holdings Limited. The transaction is anticipated to close by May 31, 2012.

“Cogita and Epicor have a long and successful history of delivering complete, end-to-end solutions and award-winning services to the markets we serve,” said Craig Charlton, senior VP and general manager of Asia Pacific for Epicor. “In Australia and New Zealand, Cogita has emerged as one of the premier providers of enterprise business applications, particularly for the manufacturing sector. We believe that bringing their experienced sales and consulting organization together with the global strength and strong regional presence of Epicor will provide immediate benefit to our mutual customers.”

Cogita has consistently been one of the most successful Epicor channel partners, winning the Epicor “Global Partner of the Year” award as the top revenue producer worldwide the past four years. With the acquisition of these assets, Epicor will now have a direct presence in the New Zealand market and will become one of the largest enterprise software companies in the region. The Cogita operations will join the existing Epicor operations in Australia, bringing the total number of Epicor employees to approximately 100, serving more than 600 customers in the region.
