July 14, 2009: Neural Technologies, a leading provider of risk management software solutions, and FICO (NYSE:FIC), the leading provider of analytics and decision management technology, today announced that Neural Technologies has acquired a key asset from FICO, the LiquidCredit® for Telecom solution.
Current customers for FICO's LiquidCredit for Telecom solution will experience a seamless transition of their current services and agreement to Neural Technologies. Further, Neural Technologies has offered employment to FICO's 16 telecom division employees who support this solution, who are primarily located in Norcross, Georgia.
This acquisition will add considerable strength to Neural Technologies' acclaimed portfolio of risk management products. The LiquidCredit for Telecom solution is a web-based instant credit decisioning solution that provides organisations with a rapid, precise assessment of risk with all the benefits offered by a hosted solution, such as rapid implementation and reduced costs.
Neural Technologies is committed to supporting the existing global customer base for LiquidCredit for Telecom and to enhancing and extending the solution to a wider global audience.
Said Ian Gebbett, CEO of Neural Technologies' US operation, "The acquisition of the LiquidCredit for Telecom solution will complement our existing world-class, patented technology to deliver exceptional results in credit risk management. The economic crisis has led to a heightened interest in solutions that provide accurate, up-front assessment of risk, and we believe LiquidCredit for Telecom will become a world leader of great interest to both our existing and prospective customers looking to manage risk whilst growing the customer and subscriber base."
"We're pleased to be able to place this solution and telecom industry experts in the hands of a leading provider of risk management software solutions," said Dr. Mark Greene, CEO of FICO. "While we've determined that certain aspects of our telecom industry business no longer fit FICO's long-term business strategy, we will continue to support telecom service providers through offerings like our FICO credit risk scores, custom analytics and other decision management technologies that help them make their best customer decisions."
Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
