Oma Savings Bank Plc and Cognizant have agreed to terminate the contract for the core banking project


Oma Savings Bank Plc (OmaSp) and Cognizant have mutually agreed to cancel the project and terminate the contract regarding the renewal of the core banking platform commenced in 2019. As part of the agreement Cognizant will pay OmaSp a significant financial compensation, which will have a positive impact of approximately EUR 22 million on OmaSp’s profit before taxes for the financial year 2021.

CEO Pasi Sydänlammi, OmaSp

“Negotiations with Cognizant have taken place in good spirits and we concluded that the termination of the cooperation agreement for the core banking project is the best solution for OmaSp. Samlink will continue as an essential IT services provider for OmaSp.
