Infor Agrees to Sell its EAM Business to Hexagon AB and Form Strategic Relationship

ATLANTA -July 12th, 2021 - We are pleased to inform our customers, Visual K-Infor, that Infor has entered into an agreement to sell its global EAM (Enterprise Asset Management) business to Hexagon AB (Nasdaq Stockholm: HEXA B), a global leader in digital reality solutions.

How does Infor EAM make it even better? Being part of Hexagon AB dedicated to innovation in asset management. We know there are many opportunities and improvements. Infor and Koch Equity Development, both subsidiaries of Koch Industries, are building strategic relationships with Hexagon. As a result of the transaction, Koch also will have an ownership stake in Hexagon.

As the EAM market evolves from traditional asset management to asset performance management (APM), customers require broader solutions to manage the entire lifecycle of their assets — from the design/build phase to the operation phase.  The divestiture and strategic relationship positions Infor to combine its industry-leading EAM technology with Hexagon’s digital reality solutions — including sensor, software and autonomous technologies — to produce a better outcome for customers.

“This is a win-win for Infor and Hexagon, as well as our customers and employees,” said Infor CEO Kevin Samuelson. “It enables Infor to double-down on providing innovative, industry-specific solutions that help address our customers’ biggest business challenges. And it enables us to partner with a company that is in a unique position to drive further digital transformation for Infor EAM customers by integrating Infor EAM’s asset management capabilities with Hexagon’s digital reality solutions and platforms.”

Ola Rollén, Hexagon president and CEO, said, “By integrating Infor EAM’s built-in, industry-specific asset management capabilities with our digital reality solutions and platforms, we can improve capital asset performance in ways beyond what EAM can achieve standalone — from enhancing predictive maintenance and reducing energy usage to supporting other sustainability initiatives. Infor EAM customers and partners can expect a smooth transition with significant synergies that will produce faster growth and greater opportunities, including expansion into new verticals, as well as underserved markets such as Asia Pacific.”
