Cognizant to Acquire TriZetto, Creating a Fully-Integrated

With more than $3 billion in combined healthcare revenue, Cognizant and TriZetto will serve nearly 245,000 healthcare providers

Cognizant has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire TriZetto Corporation for $2.7 billion in cash, subject to customary adjustments. Based in Englewood, CO, privately-held TriZetto is a leading provider of healthcare IT software and solutions.

“Healthcare is undergoing structural shifts due to reform, cost pressure and shifting responsibilities between payers and providers. This creates a significant growth opportunity, which TriZetto will help us capture,” said Francisco D’Souza, CEO of Cognizant. “We are excited that the integrated portfolio of capabilities across technology and operations will uniquely position us to help clients drive higher levels of operational efficiency, while re-imagining care for the future. We look forward to welcoming the TriZetto team into the Cognizant family and creating a truly differentiated and sustainable foundation for healthcare.”

Cognizant expects this acquisition to accelerate significantly its market position and strategy of delivering innovative healthcare software and solutions to a wide range of healthcare clients. TriZetto brings to Cognizant significant and complementary new market opportunities, expertise and intellectual property, including:

Multiple industry-leading software platforms used by payers and providers.
Enhanced competitiveness in integrated engagement opportunities.

Approximately $1.5 billion of potential revenue synergies cumulatively over the next five years.
Attractive, non-linear software revenue.

TriZetto and its 3,700 employees will be a part of Cognizant’s existing healthcare business, which currently serves more than 200 clients, including 16 of the top 20 U.S. health plans and four of the top five pharmacy benefit management companies. Healthcare currently represents approximately 26 percent of Cognizant’s revenue.

“TriZetto solutions enable the healthcare interactions of millions of people in the U.S. every day,” said Jude Dieterman, President and COO of TriZetto. “Our agreement with Cognizant advances our vision of simplifying healthcare for everyone. We believe the combination of Cognizant and TriZetto’s talented employees and innovative technology and operations will have a meaningful impact on the way health is managed and care is delivered.”
