Micro Focus completes acquisition of Application Testing / AutomatedSoftware Quality business of Compuware Corporation

Micro Focus International plc (MCRO.L “Micro Focus” or “the Group”), today announced that it has completed the acquisition of the Application Testing / Automated Software Quality business of Compuware Corporation (together being the "Compuware Testing and ASQ Business").

The products within the Compuware Testing and ASQ Business are highly complementary to Micro Focus’ core Application Management & Modernization solutions.  As part of its strategy review, the management of Micro Focus identified the ASQ market as a logically adjacent area to extend its Application Management footprint.   As previously announced by Micro Focus, it is intended that the Compuware Testing and ASQ Business will now be fully integrated into the Micro Focus Group. 

Stephen Kelly, CEO of Micro Focus International plc said:

“The acquisition of the Compuware Testing and ASQ business is a logical extension to our existing application management proposition, providing new addressable market opportunity.  We see strong growth potential in this market. We have a successful track record of integrating businesses and we are well placed to deliver value from this acquisition.”
