*UKHotViewsExtra* Atos 3-year plan reflects changed shape of business

Atos logoAtos made two significant moves in 2018. The first, the acquisition by Atos Worldline of SIX Payment Services, came in May (see Worldline scores SIX to build lead in European payments), reinforcing Worldline’s position as the largest payments business in Europe. The second came in in July. It was the acquisition of Syntel – see All eyes on Atos North America – which made North America Atos’ largest geography, brought increased capabilities in banking, finance and insurance, and boosted the company’s offshore resources, particularly in digital.

Having changed the size and business mix of Atos, the influence of these two acquisitions was clear to see in the main announcements from the company’s Investor Day last week. There were three key reveals: 1) the deconsolidation of Atos Worldline, 2) the three-year plan (ADVANCE 2021) and 3) a first look at the FY18 performance.
