Drummondville, August 22, 2018 – UL Mutual is proud to announce its acquisition of M@gik-Net Inc., which provides a comprehensive management platform for all players involved in the group insurance industry.

M@gik-Net has specialized in the field of group insurance management software for 20 years. It customers include several major Quebec firms that manage a portfolio of more than 5,000 companies, for a business volume of $350 million in group insurance premiums.

The solutions make it possible to efficiently manage all operations related to group insurance plans, including sales, plan administration and benefit management. 


The partnership between UL Mutual and M@gik-Net happened organically. “Both companies share the same values and vision. I am certain that UL Mutual will help us develop further client and user solutions for the Canadian market,” said M@gik-Net founder Serge Tremblay, who will remain involved throughout the transition period. M@gik-Net will continue to operate completely independently, with UL Mutual acting as its strategic and financial partner. “For us, the most important aspect of this transaction is to continue to offer the same excellent service that M@gik-Net's reputation was built on, and we are very happy that we can rely on our existing strong, devoted team,” said UL Mutual's CEO, Christian Mercier. 


The acquisition will allow UL Mutual to fast-track its development and transform its own management system. For its part, M@gik-Net is securing its longevity and growth to answer the increasing and evolving needs of the group insurance world.
