The Israel insurance company software solutions firm is streamlining after losing a major customer.

Isaraeli software company Sapiens International NV (Nasdaq: SPNS; TASE: SPNS) is firing several dozen employees in Israel as part of its streamlining plan, which it launched several months ago. Sapiens, led by CEO Roni Al-Dor, is part of the Formula Group, and develops software solutions for insurance companies. The company has a market cap of $604 million.

Sapiens's Israel operations are located in Holon. At the end of 2016, the company had 1,928 employees worldwide including 862 employees in Israel - 45% of the workforce.

In April, the company announced that it was halting work with a major customer and subsequently cut its guidance for 2017. Shortly afterwards the company published and announced a reorganization plan including layoffs.

Sapiens said yesterday, "From the second quarter of 2017, the company has been implementing a streamlining plan and reorganization including a reduction of costs and streamlining manpower in order to improve overheads."
