Evry A/S is a Norwegian information technology company that supplies services relating to computing, including operation, outsourcing and online banking. The company is headquartered in Oslo. It was established through a merger between EDB Business Partner and ErgoGroup in 2010 and has 10,000 employees at 135 offices in 16 countries.

History[edit]

EDB ErgoGroup ASA was formed in 2010 with the merger of EDB Business Partner and ErgoGroup.[5] Telenor owned most of the shares of ErgoGroup. The company subsequently changed its name to Evry ASA in April 2012.[6]

In August 2014, Evry announced that it was initiating a process to investigate strategic opportunities. This was motivated by their assessment of the IT sector in the Nordic countries.[7] In March 2015 Apax Partners became the majority owner of the company, a new board was appointed and it decided to apply for a de-listing from the stock exchange.[8] On 29 October 2015, the company was delisted from the Oslo Stock Exchange.[9]

In August 2015, following the loss of a contract with Norwegian bank DNB, Evry announced it would lay off 500-550 workers in Norway and Sweden to increase profits, saving NOK 400–500 million (about USD 50–60 million).[10] In October 2015 it announced the transfer of a further 600 employees to IBM in an outsourcing deal worth USD 1 billion.[11] In 2016 it announced it would double the manpower at its Indian subsidiary, then at 600 in Mohali and 1,500 in Bengaluru, over three years, investing INR 1–1.25 billion.[12][13] Evry had a total workforce of 9,400 in 2016.[citation needed]
