Patriot National Acquires Vikaran Solutions

Staff Writer | April 20, 2015

Patriot National, Inc., a national provider of outsourcing solutions to the insurance industry, announces it has acquired Vikaran Solutions, a Chicago-based technology company that provides software and services to the property & casualty industry. As part of the transaction, Patriot National has also entered into a definitive agreement to purchase all outstanding stock of MPCS Pvt. LTD, Vikaran’s software development center in Pune, India. 

The MPCS transaction is expected to close on or about April 30. The total purchase price for both entities is approximately $10 million. Vikaran has estimated 2015 EBITDA to be around $322,000 and this excludes any synergies related to the transaction. Vikaran and MPCS will become part of the company’s technology subsidiary, Patriot Technology Solutions. These acquisitions will expand Patriot National’s technology product offerings and provide an outsourcing platform in India.

“The acquisitions of Vikaran and MPCS gives us the ability to rapidly expand our technology-based service offerings,” says Steven M. Mariano, CEO of Patriot National.  “The team at Vikaran built our proprietary Workers' Compensation Expert system, and together they bring extensive experience in technical consulting, design, and development for the commercial and workers’ compensation insurance industry. We will also add several new insurance companies to our growing list of clients and over 70 highly-trained programmers.” 

“We are very excited and pleased with the possibilities that are opened up by Patriot’s acquisition of Vikaran.  This is a huge win, not only for both companies but also for our current and future customers,” says Sandeep Mehta, CEO of Vikaran. “Vikaran’s technology platform coupled with Patriot National’s business and operational expertise creates a unique value proposition in the insurance marketplace. The added credibility of a strong balance sheet and public-company transparency will enhance our competitive position in the marketplace. We’re looking forward to changing the fundamental way that insurance companies evaluate, purchase and deploy technology in their business.” 

“Our goal at Patriot is to deliver innovative technology and insurance solutions unmatched by any other provider,” says Judith Haddad, president of Patriot Technology Solutions, Patriot National’s technology subsidiary. “We have collaborated with Vikaran and MPCS for several years and I have the highest level of respect and confidence in their technical skills, innovative thinking and ability to execute. With the addition of Vikaran's core product, we offer a complete insurance value-chain solution which meets the needs of all our current and potential clients. We are delighted to welcome them to our team."
