This transaction is also in line with our stated goals of margin expansion and diversification of our revenue," stated Kevin Murai, CEO and President of SYNNEX Corp.
"Minacs has been able to establish itself as a high value unique player in Business Services. Their investments in IoT and Marketing Optimization stand out as solutions with growing market demand, which we believe we will be able to leverage across our combined client base," said Chris Caldwell, President of Concentrix. "This acquisition is intended to increase our speed to market of these solutions and provide us new opportunities for expansion."
Anil Bhalla, CEO of Minacs, will stay with the combined company and join Concentrix’ senior executive staff. "I am confident that the combination of our capabilities will present an even more compelling value proposition to the marketplace," Bhalla said. "Across industries, clients can expect our shared vision and strategic scale to help them solve bigger, more complex business challenges."
It is anticipated that the transaction will close in late Q3 2016, subject to the satisfaction of regulatory requirements and customary closing conditions. Until the transaction is completed, the companies will continue to operate independently.
