CGI to acquire TeraThink
On March 25, Fairfax, VA-based CGI announced its intent to acquire TeraThink, a leading information technology and management consulting firm providing digitization, enterprise finance, risk management, and data analytics services to the U.S. federal government. The two companies signed an agreement to proceed with the transaction, which is expected to close by the end of March.
This merger will strengthen CGI Federal’s consulting expertise, and expand its enterprise application development and management services. Combining TeraThink’s agile enablement, application development, and data analytics capabilities with CGI’s Federal’s breadth of IT services will enhance offerings available to federal agencies. This merger will significantly increase the scale of enterprise applications support CGI Federal provides to all three branches of government.
“TeraThink and its approximately 250 professionals have made significant contributions for their federal government clients,” said George Schindler, president and chief executive officer of CGI. “Through combined portfolios, we strengthen our capabilities and broaden our offerings to meet the growing digitization needs of federal agencies.”
“TeraThink and CGI Federal share a culture of delivering quality services, addressing evolving needs in partnership with our clients, and maintaining a track record of high client satisfaction and longevity,” said Tim Hurlebaus, president of CGI Federal. “We look forward to welcoming the TeraThink members to the CGI team.”
