DGAP-News: JDC Group AG / Key word(s): Capital Increase/Alliance
JDC cooperates with Versicherungskammer Group and decided on a capital increase excluding subscription rights
- Long-term cooperation via the S-Versicherungsmanager tool of the Savings Banks
- Versicherungskammer Group takes a strategic stake in JDC Group AG
JDC Group AG (ISIN DE000A0B9N37) and Versicherungskammer Bayern Versicherungsanstalt des öffentlichen Rechts (Versicherungskammer), the largest public insurer in Germany, intend to establish a comprehensive cooperation in connection with the S-Versicherungsmanager, a central IT system for the sales support of public insurers in the insurance business for private customers of the savings banks. The two sides signed a framework cooperation agreement yesterday.
As already for Provinzial and its affiliated savings banks, JDC's platform technology is to become the engine room for business processing and back-office functionalities in the background of the S-Versicherungsmanager. The JDC platform and the S-Versicherungsmanager will be closely interlinked via an interface (API-structure).
In order to secure the long-term cooperation, Versicherungskammer takes a strategic stake in JDC Group AG. To this end, the Management Board of JDC Group AG, with the consent of the Supervisory Board, decided yesterday to increase the Company's share capital of currently EUR 13,128,461 by using the existing authorized capital 2021 by issuing 540,000 new shares and excluding the subscription rights of existing shareholders. Versicherungskammer will subscribe for all new shares. The capital increase will provide JDC with additional equity of approx. EUR 10.7 million.
"We are pleased to be able to win the second and largest public insurer with Versicherungskammer Group, after having won Provinzial as a customer in the beginning of this year. This is another long-term cooperation with which we want to become the number 1 insurance platform in the field of savings banks and throughout Germany", says Ralph Konrad, CFO of JDC Group.
"We warmly welcome Versicherungskammer as a shareholder of JDC," adds Dr. Sebastian Grabmaier, CEO of the company. "With a great image, top access to the savings banks in its business area and its very large financial strength, Versicherungskammer is a shareholder that JDC could not wish for better. We are looking forward to address the immense joint sales potential!"
"We were impressed by the JDC Group's strong foundation, digital approach and experience," adds Dr. Stephan Spieleder, Member of the Board of Management of Versicherungskammer Group and responsible for IT. "As a technology and settlement partner, JDC Group complements our S-Versicherungsmanager in a very complementary way. With it, we have already set the course for the future and are now taking the next step towards platform economy, the future-shaping business model in the IT of Versicherungskammer.
"With this cooperation, we want to bundle the potential of our sales strength and JDC's leading sales technology as a supplement to the S-Versicherungsmanager developed by us," says Klaus G. Leyh, Member of the Board of Management for Sales & Marketing at Versicherungskammer. We will create added value for customers, sales partners and companies through the optimal combination of sales and back-office functionalities."
