SunGard today announced that it has acquired PredictiveMetrics, a provider of predictive scoring and analytical services for trade credit, debt collections, utilities and other markets.

The acquisition will help extend SunGard's AvantGard suite of receivables solutions to offer statistical scoring services that help organizations proactively analyze the credit and collection worthiness and likelihood of delinquency or payment across their receivables portfolio. The acquisition, the terms of which were not disclosed, is not expected to have a material impact on SunGard's financial results.

PredictiveMetrics' core services around credit and collection analyses will become part of SunGard's AvantGard Receivables solution and will be marketed under the AvantGard Receivables brand. SunGard will continue to support the core markets including business-to-business, utilities and debt collection agencies. The predictive modeling solution will also be leveraged to build a new offering for trade credit liquidity decisioning across the receivables portfolio. This will help companies and lenders apply modeling to appropriately evaluate risk and liquidity, helping them better leverage key instruments such as credit insurance, collateralized lending, dynamic discounting, securitization, invoice financing and first / third party outsourcing.

Michael Banasiak, president, PredictiveMetrics, said, "Being part of SunGard will help us offer increased flexibility and choice to the credit and collections community. We are very pleased to expand into new areas such as trade credit liquidity in order to deliver more sophisticated solutions for optimized liquidity management." Mike Banasiak will join SunGard as part of the AvantGard team.

C.J. Wimley, executive vice president, trade credit liquidity solutions for SunGard's AvantGard business unit, said, "The acquisition of PredictiveMetrics is a strategic step forward in our long-term plan to help companies manage their receivables as a capital investment. Performing predictive analytics across the receivables portfolio helps companies mitigate corporate credit risk and gain valuableaaluable insight for improved decision-making."
