OneAmerica Completes Key BMO Cutover 60 Days Ahead of Schedule

PR Newswire — February 10, 2017

INDIANAPOLIS, Feb. 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — OneAmerica® today announced a
successful completion of the integration of BMO Financial Group’s
Milwaukee-based retirement division into the OneAmerica network, 16 months after
the acquisition officially closed and nearly two months earlier than projected.

“Our goal was to deliver a best-in-class transition for our associates, clients
and their employees while combining the forces of two historically great
service-oriented companies,” said Bill Yoerger, president of Retirement Services
for OneAmerica. “Not only did we complete this task, we completed integration
ahead of schedule, powered by 233 associates in Wisconsin who are ready to build
on a legacy.”

The integration, which culminated on Jan. 23, 2017 with a full network cutover,
occurred 60 days ahead of the original 18-month timetable announced after the
$26 billion acquisition, which took effect Oct. 1, 2015.

“Network cutover and integration represent a milestone accomplishment for us
because we truly emphasized a team approach and best practices all along the
way. We brought people together, working across functions and divisions,” said
Nicolas Lance, vice president of transformation for OneAmerica.

“Much of the synergy gained through this experience will be carried forward as
the team transitions its focus on initiatives to unify and enhance our customer
experience, competitiveness and systems,” Lance said.

The integration team was a major enterprise initiative with migration details
from small and big, from rebranding business cards, to new offices for
associates.

As part of integration, in October OneAmerica opened a state-of-the-art
participant call center in Wauwatosa, Wis. and in December launched a
participant website that offers a user-friendly experience to help participants
and plan sponsors manage their retirement accounts. Also, on Dec. 5, 2016,
OneAmerica opened a new 35-associate Participant Service Center in Indianapolis.
