Kainos Group plc

("Kainos" or the "Company")

Acquisition of RapidIT-Cloudbera, Inc.

Kainos Group plc (KNOS), a UK-headquartered IT provider with expertise across three divisions - Digital Services, Workday Services, and Workday Products, today announces the acquisition of RapidIT-Cloudbera, Inc. ("RapidIT-Cloudbera").

Established in 2017, RapidIT-Cloudbera is the creator of Genie, a Workday-focused automated testing product which has the ability to rapidly auto-generate test cases, allowing customers to quickly launch their automated testing efforts. Genie is used by over 100 organisations to streamline their testing activity.

Kainos will combine Genie with its own market-leading automated testing product, Smart Test, which will provide customers the ability to achieve greater compliance and quality assurance - more quickly, with less internal effort and with increased testing coverage. Integration of the products is due to complete during Kainos' current financial year.

In its most recent results, Kainos re-confirmed its ambition for the Smart products suite, which includes Smart Test. Reporting Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR) of GBP49m at 31 March 2023, the Smart products suite is forecast to achieve GBP100m ARR by 2026.

RapidIT-Cloudbera is headquartered in Atlanta, US, and has operations in the US and India employing 101 people. The team at RapidIT-Cloudbera will join the Kainos Workday Products division.

The terms of the acquisition have not been disclosed.

Brendan Mooney, CEO of Kainos, commented:

"We are delighted to welcome our new colleagues from RapidIT-Cloudbera. The skills, expertise and creativity of our expanded team will allow us to accelerate our product development, increasing the functionality of our existing products and allowing us to quickly bring new products to market - it is a winning combination."

Gopo Velagundula , CEO of RapidIT-Cloudbera commented:

"The automated testing market for Workday is growing rapidly and by combining our two products we are creating the undisputed global leader for automated testing. The combination also represents fantastic news for our customers, increasing the scale and value of what we can do to support their compliance efforts."

Malachy Smith, Workday Products Director at Kainos:

"When we launched Smart Test in 2013 we created the market for the automated testing of Workday and it has been incredibly exciting to be at the forefront of this market for the past ten years. The combination of Smart Test and Genie further enhances our position in this high growth market and allows us to look beyond our GBP100m ARR target."
