Charlotte, NC; April 30, 2003 - DecisionPoint International (“DecisionPoint”), a boutique Investment Bank providing merger and acquisition services to middle-market technology clients, announced today that its client Aurum Technology® Inc., a leading provider of open and integrated technology-based solutions to the financial industry serving many of the financial industry’s highest performing institutions, has successfully completed the acquisition of Utah-based Computer Consultants Corporation (CCCorp). A privately held company, CCCorp is presently the fourth largest provider of Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) solutions to the credit union industry with nearly 600 customers located throughout the United States and Caribbean. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Offering both in-house and ASP solution alternatives, CCCorp has served the small- to mid-tier segments of the credit union market for more than 25 years. With its newest product introduced in late 2001, Mercury™, CCCorp delivers the most advanced and flexible Microsoft®-based core processing platform in the credit union space.
Aurum has identified a range of synergies that will result from the acquisition, including an expanded market presence, complementary technology platforms and common market and solutions philosophies. “Today’s announcement represents the successful culmination of more than five months of intensive, professional interaction between our two companies – resulting in the acquisition of not only an advanced, flexible Microsoft-based core processing platform, but also a management team and employee base that clearly demonstrate a thorough understanding of their market and an unlimited passion for customer service,” stated Paul Bourke, chairman, CEO and president of Aurum Technology Inc.
“Aurum’s past focus has been on the mid to upper end of the credit union marketplace. With this acquisition, as they integrate CCCorp’s Mercury™ product into their existing suite of products, Aurum will expand its reach to capitalize on small to mid-tier credit union opportunities,” said John Nash, Executive Managing Director of DecisionPoint International.
