In accordance with its ambitious international development strategy and with the support of The Carlyle Group, its new shareholder, Prima Solutions, French insurance software vendor, today announced the acquisition of Tricast, a company specialized in analysis and predictive tools.
Based in Paris and created in 2000 by Jean Boudy, Tricast partners with nearly 50 clients across a variety of countries in Europe, South America, the Middle East and Asia, offering them access to an fully-integrated insurance analysis software platform comprised of data and predictive algorithms and aimed at improving the market position and technical margins of its end users. This acquisition will allow Prima Solutions to enrich its software offering and to market this customized technological and scientific capability, designed to optimize the results and operational efficiency of clients. On an international scale, this acquisition gives Prima Solutions the possibility of successfully reaching new markets within Europe, the Middle East, Latin America and Asia.
The merger of these 2 software platforms also strengthens Prima Solutions’ capacity to provide an insurance solution adapted to new on-demand insurance products linked to behavioral trends (such as ‘Pay how you drive’ and usage-based policies) and based on connected solutions. This capability is enabled by actuarial analysis of big data.
Following this acquisition, Tricast’s personnel will be fully employed by Prima Solutions and will be managed by the current executive team, including the President Hugues Delannoy, as well as the CEO Rodolphe Peim.
“This agreement concluded with Prima Solutions has the objective of opening up a full-service digital software platform to insurance professionals, able to meet their operational needs, including the improvement of client relations, insurance policy management and claims handling, and, in addition, optimizing technical margins. Our clients will naturally continue to benefit from the same level of quality as they have up to now and will furthermore have access to Prima Solutions’ capabilities and innovative products” stated Jean Boudy, Founder and CEO of Tricast.
“We are delighted to welcome Tricast into the Prima Solutions group. This strategic match enables us to greatly strengthen our software offer while proposing a complementary expertise to our clients, which is central to the improvement of technical margins. This acquisition demonstrates our determination to pursue our new growth strategy, particularly on an international scale by targeting new markets beyond our initial borders, with the support of our new shareholder” adds Hugues Delannoy, President of Prima Solutions.
The acquisition of Prima Solutions in partnership with its management team has now been finalized. The investment was made by Carlyle Europe Technology Partners III, a €657 million Carlyle fund focused on European technology, media and telecommunications (TMT) companies.
