The company was founded in 1982 as an offshoot of Golden Pages, the Israeli phone directory company, which was owned by the Aurec Group headed by Morris Kahn.[4] Together with others at Golden Pages, Kahn developed a billing software program for phone directory companies and with Boaz Dotan established a company called Aurec Information & Directory Systems to market this product.[5][6] In 1985, Southwestern Bell Corporation acquired a 50 percent ownership share of Aurec Information, and its name was changed to Amdocs. Within two years, the Aurec Group sold off all its holdings in Amdocs for almost US$1 billion.[5]

Between 1990 and 1995 Amdocs took its initial diversification steps, expanding first into the wireline telephone arena and then the mobile space. Over the years, Amdocs has continued to expand its product and services offerings, both organically and through a series of acquisitions, including Clarify, Cramer, Actix, Celcite and Comverse BSS assets. The company went public on the New York Stock Exchange in 1998, moving to the NASDAQ in 2014. [5]
