Technology M&A Practice Advised 3esi-Enersight, a portfolio company of Rubicon Technology Partners, on Its Acquisition of Palantir Solutions
Market leaders join forces to accelerate the digital transformation of the energy industry

CALGARY, ALBERTA, CANADA – Today, the energy industry's premier planning software provider 3esi-Enersight announced it has acquired Palantir Solutions, creators of Palantir PlanningSpace.

The acquisition combines the industry's two leading software vendors, creating a single global company that will now focus its broadened expertise and development capabilities toward accelerating the digital transformation taking place in the front office of oil and gas companies.

The new combined company will be called Aucerna.

"Today's energy companies are facing an operating environment with more risk and more complexity than ever before," said Wayne Sim, CEO of Aucerna. "Margins are shrinking and yet the scale and complexity of our customers' business continue to grow. This is the new norm for our industry and it is driving the need for both capital and operational efficiency."

Sim went on to say, "This environment represents a golden opportunity for operators to evolve from labor-intensive, spreadsheet, paper and email-based systems to integrated technologies that free up time to focus on delivering value for investors. Aucerna will accelerate this evolution by increasing the pace of innovation and providing our customers with faster time to value."

Jason Ambrose, Palantir Solutions co-founder and managing director, said, "By joining forces as Aucerna, we are now uniquely positioned to offer a complete solution for every aspect of planning, operations and reserves. We can deliver these solutions with tight integration to form a seamless connection of people and information from the reservoir to the boardroom, and that's what sets us apart."
