The addition of Newmarket, based in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, US will bring a strong management team and talented workforce to Amadeus that will significantly strengthen the Group’s expertise and experience in the hotel IT industry, a key target sector for future growth. Newmarket also adds established relationships with key customers in the hotel segment.
Amadeus, the leading technology provider for the global travel industry, today announced that it is to acquire Newmarket International, a leading provider of cloud-based group and event IT solutions to the hotel industry, for USD 500 million.
“This important and strategic acquisition will strengthen Amadeus’ position in the hotel IT sector, bringing important expertise and key customer relationships to the company that will accelerate our move into this key market,” said Luis Maroto, President and CEO of Amadeus. “With many hotel chains at a crossroads in their IT strategy, and the provider landscape fragmented, Amadeus is committed to playing a key role in partnering with the hotel industry to address its challenges and this transaction will greatly accelerate that objective.”
