We are pleased to announce that from now on, we will continue our history of success and growth as part of the LucaNet Group. LucaNet is an international provider of Corporate Performance Management for Finance, with solutions for consolidation, planning, and reporting – and a long-standing strategic partner of AMANA. Our joining the LucaNet Group is now the next step in further deepening our cooperation and expanding our success internationally and thus represents an important milestone in our companies' global growth strategy
The LucaNet Group will also benefit from our wide range of innovative solutions and, with the areas of Tax Reporting and Tax Solutions, will gain a strong and sustainable line of business in which we have been able to establish a market-leading role as an innovation leader and trusted technical expert for many years.
This is not only a great opportunity for us and LucaNet, but also for our joint 5,000 customers. With all our experience and concentrated know-how, we can now respond even better to their needs and provide them with comprehensive support in their challenges.
Successful cooperation – big goals
We have been working closely with LucaNet since 2015, particularly in the area of Disclosure Management. Among the solutions we offer our customers are tools such as SmartNotes and XBRL-Tagger. They complement LucaNet's solutions for consolidation, planning, and reporting with extensive functions for business and financial reporting and digital transmission.
Also, in the area of ESG reporting, which will occupy many medium-sized companies and corporations in the coming years, we can already look back on a successful collaboration. Since last year, we have been offering a simple, fast, and secure ESG solution, which we will now continue to expand at full speed.
Solutions from both companies complement each other perfectly
"We are very pleased to establish AMANA as a new business unit within the LucaNet Group and to further expand our range of innovative software solutions in this new constellation," says Philipp Stampfuss, one of the four founders and managing directors of AMANA. "Our expertise in financial reporting and tax solutions perfectly complements LucaNet's strength in consolidation, planning and reporting. We have worked closely with LucaNet for many years. AMANA will benefit from the experience, infrastructure and reach of the LucaNet Group. We look forward to the future together.”
Jörg Ringelstein and Thorsten Funke add: "The partnership between LucaNet and AMANA will further strengthen the already globally successful joint solution portfolio with a range of leading tax solutions and, with the planned establishment of a joint "TaxCompetence" center, will also lay the technical foundation for future product innovations along the rapidly changing regulatory market environment.

"The deepening of our partnership creates a new European CPM software champion with a unique product offering for the Office of Finance.
