Amdocs has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire all of Bridgewater Systems’ outstanding common shares pursuant to a plan of arrangement that is subject to Bridgewater’s shareholder approval and customary closing conditions, including certain regulatory approvals. The transaction is valued at approximately $211 million. The boards of directors of Bridgewater and Amdocs have each unanimously approved the transaction, which is expected to be completed within 90 days.

With the acquisition of Bridgewater, a provider of policy, subscriber management and network control solutions for mobile and convergent service providers, Amdocs expects to further expand its Customer Experience Systems (CES) portfolio with sophisticated data experience management capabilities.

This acquisition is aimed at enabling service providers to support virtually any pricing strategy for data services, based on the combination of advanced customer models coupled with network level information. Bridgewater’s solutions combined with Amdocs’ convergent charging technology would provide a holistic view of the customer hierarchy across multiple devices, lines of business, and networks. This would enable service providers to completely redefine the real-time data experience and their approach to monetizing and optimizing data services.

Unlike traditional point-based solutions, Amdocs would combine its turbo-charging technology with network level information. This would bridge the gap between BSS and the network, resulting in a complete and holistic solution and enabling service providers to deliver an optimized, quality-based, real time customer experience across all devices, services and networks.

In addition to product and solution synergies, Amdocs and Bridgewater share numerous top tier customers, including Bell Mobility, Sprint and Telstra.
