Amdocs acquires Sourced to Further Boost Communications Industry’s Move to the Cloud
ST. LOUIS, May 12, 2021 – Amdocs (NASDAQ: DOX), a leading provider of software and services to communications and media companies, today announced it has acquired Sourced Group, a leading global technology consultancy specializing in large-scale cloud transformations for sophisticated, high-end enterprises in industries such as financial services, communications and others. The two companies are excited by the opportunity to strengthen Amdocs’ capabilities for taking the communications industry to the cloud and bring to Amdocs’ 350+ service provider customers Sourced’s decade-long experience of delivering cloud at scale.
“We are delighted the innovative Sourced team is joining Amdocs. We are proud to bring such great professionals and practices to our industry and look forward to working with their wide-reaching customer base in North America, Asia-Pacific and Australia. This acquisition is part of our wider cross-company investment in the cloud and will further solidify our leadership in this domain as we accelerate our strategy to take the communications and media industry to the cloud,” said Shuky Sheffer, President and Chief Executive Officer of Amdocs Management Limited. “Sourced’s proven cloud migration platform, deployment framework and trusted design process, alongside its deep partnerships with Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform, complement our portfolio of cloud-native products and services and further expands and diversifies our customer base.”
“We are excited to join Amdocs and believe the combination of Amdocs’ cloud-native products and services and our high-end consulting and deep expertise across the entire cloud transformation process will prove compelling for service providers as they move to the cloud,” said Jon Spinks, Sourced founder and CEO. “We also look forward to continuing serving our current customers and leveraging Amdocs’ scale to further accelerate their cloud journeys.”
Sourced, a previously privately-owned company headquartered in Toronto, has offices in Australia, Singapore and Malaysia.
Amdocs acquired Sourced in mid-March for a net consideration of approximately $75 million in cash1. Additional consideration may be paid later based on the achievement of certain performance metrics. The impact of the acquisition on Amdocs’ non-GAAP diluted earnings per share2 is expected to be neutral in the full fiscal year 2021. The impact on GAAP diluted earnings per share will not be known until after Amdocs completes the purchase price allocation.
