I am extremely enthusiastic about the acquisition of Lilly, said Jim Schaper, Chairman and CEO of Infor. Infor is already recognized as one of the largest providers of solutions to discrete manufacturers in Europe. This acquisition combined with our existing presence in the North American automotive market further expands our footprint while broadening our vertical market focus in the aerospace, defense and electronics industries among others. We welcome Lillys customers into our user group whose brands are recognized globally.

Infor is committed to serving Lillys customers and continuing the development of Lillys technology. Founded in 1992, Lilly provides vertical market solutions for discrete manufacturers. The company has a global customer base of over 3,000 users and an established distribution channel. Lillys customers rely on products such as VISUAL Enterprise to enhance their understanding of business operations, manufacturing and the supply chain, resulting in improved bottom-line performance.

We are committed to taking care of our customers with ongoing product enhancements and outstanding customer service, said Robin Pederson. Lillys customers will benefit from Infors deep focus on discrete manufacturing, global reach and financial strength while gaining a long-term partner committed to long-term investment in product development.
