MGI will partner with Google Cloud to consolidate its marketplaces into a single cloud platform. Streamlining the cloud infrastructure into a unified technology stack will boost developmental agility and yield material cost savings for MGI. Migration is underway and should be largely completed in 2025. Moreover, MGI’s AI team can leverage the tech giant’s AI-toolbox to accelerate development and roll-out times of its AI-driven products (Moments.AI, ATOM), while keeping headcount in check. Our updated DCF model now factors in the announced €20m cost savings and points to a €3.8 TP (old: €3.6). We are Buy-rated on MGI and view the deal as a strategic win that stands to spur greater operating efficiency over the mid- and long-term.
