 Sapiens’ end-to-end solution will fulfil all of Old Mutual’s business, analytical and regulatory data needs

Holon, Israel, August 8, 2022Sapiens International Corporation, (NASDAQ and TASE: SPNS), a leading global provider of software solutions for the insurance industry, today announced the deployment of Sapiens Intelligence by Old Mutual Insure (OMI), South Africa’s oldest insurance company. Sapiens’ solution will provide an enterprise-wide consolidated view of the organization’s data and support its reporting and analytics needs.

Old Mutual Insure has been a Sapiens customer since 2006, a 16-year relationship that began with the implementation of Sapiens Tia Enterprise solution for its core business, followed by the adoption of Sapiens ReinsuranceMaster for its reinsurance business. The addition of Sapiens Intelligence is the natural next step in Old Mutual’s digital transformation strategy with Sapiens.

“We were looking for an enterprise-level data platform with native connectivity to our existing systems, and Sapiens Intelligence was a perfect fit,” said Denver Naidoo, Old Mutual Insure’s Chief Data Officer. “Due to licensing issues with our hosting platform, we requested that Sapiens cut back their normal nine-to-ten-month implementation period down to six or seven months, which they were successfully able to accommodate.”

Sapiens Intelligence has a complete and optimized insurance information hub, integrating all business units and product lines into one unified and consistent organizational view.

“Old Mutual Insure now has access to a wide landscape of heterogenous systems ranging from core applications from Sapiens to third-party external data sources,” explained Roni Al-Dor, Sapiens president and CEO. “The foundational R&D that was done on this project will be brought to bear on other existing Sapiens Tia Enterprise customers, in regions across the globe.”

Sapiens Intelligence enriches processes with model outcome and predictions, optimizing the insurer’s performance – driving cost reduction as well as improving customer experience.

There are important factors that could cause our actual results, levels of activity, performance or achievements to differ materially from the results, levels of activity, performance or achievements expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements, including, but not limited to: the degree of our success in our plans to leverage our global footprint to grow our sales; the degree of our success in integrating the companies that we have acquired through the implementation of our M&A growth strategy; the lengthy development cycles for our solutions, which may frustrate our ability to realize revenues and/or profits from our potential new solutions; our lengthy and complex sales cycles, which do not always result in the realization of revenues; the degree of our success in retaining our existing customers or competing effectively for greater market share; difficulties in successfully planning and managing changes in the size of our operations; the frequency of the long-term, large, complex projects that we perform that involve complex estimates of project costs and profit margins, which sometimes change mid-stream; the challenges and potential liability that heightened privacy laws and regulations pose to our business; occasional disputes with clients, which may adversely impact our results of operations and our reputation; various intellectual property issues related to our business; potential unanticipated product vulnerabilities or cybersecurity breaches of our or our customers’ systems; risks related to the insurance industry in which our clients operate; risks associated with our global sales and operations, such as changes in regulatory requirements, wide-spread viruses and epidemics like the recent novel coronavirus pandemic, which adversely affected our results of operations, or fluctuations in currency exchange rates; and risks related to our principal location in Israel and our status as a Cayman Islands company.

While we believe such forward-looking statements are based on reasonable assumptions, should one or more of the underlying assumptions prove incorrect, or these risks or uncertainties materialize, our actual results may differ materially from those expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. Please read the risks discussed under the heading “Risk Factors” in our most recent Annual Report on Form 20-F, in order to review conditions that we believe could cause actual results to differ materially from those contemplated by the forward-looking statements.
