RedPrairie and JDA Software Group, Inc. announced the completion of the previously announced merger between the two companies. The merger positions the company, with combined revenues of over $1 billion, to offer a broad portfolio of integrated supply chain planning and execution products and services.
The combined company will adopt the JDA brand identity and be headquartered in Scottsdale, Arizona. Since the merger agreement was announced on November 1, 2012, the two companies have been preparing an integration plan designed to rapidly combine the operations of the two companies into one. The plan is now substantially complete, and the integration process will begin early in the New Year and will be rapidly followed up with an integrated product roadmap in the second quarter, in time for the combined user group conference on May 5, 2013.
“Among our shared customers, over 300 have already chosen solutions from both firms, underscoring the potential of our highly complementary product suites,” said JDA President and CEO Hamish Brewer, who will lead the new company.
“Companies are looking for ways to meet the evolving needs of today’s consumer, who is always connected,” said Alok Singh, Chairman of the Board of the combined company. “The new JDA is perfectly positioned to deliver best-of-breed software products for manufacturers and retailers around the globe.
