About This Company

Sam Wyly worked for five and one-half years in computer services at IBM and Honeywell, leaving his job as area manager to found University Computing Company (UCC) with $1,000 capital in 1963.

UCC, a computer software and service company, planned to grow its profits at 100% for five years. And it did. IPO Investors in UCC in 1965 earned a 100-1 return in the next four years, a period in which the Dow declined and bonds lost 4% per year after inflation. UCC's original business concept - a computer utility - was badly mangled by the advent of minicomputers in the early '70's, but the company rebounded by becoming one of the creators of the software products industry which, along with the personal computer and the internet, has largely displaced IBM, Univac, and other then dominant computer hardware companies. Later, UCC merged into Computer Associates for over 40% of Computer Associates stock, creating what is one of today's four largest software companies.
