In February 2010, we acquired Affiliated Computer Services, Inc. ACS is a premier provider of diversified business process outsourcing and information technology services and solutions to commercial and government clients worldwide.
Subsequent to the acquisition of ACS, we acquired three additional service companies, further expanding our BPO capabilities:
In July 2010, we acquired ExcellerateHRO, LLP (“EHRO”), a global benefits administration and relocation services provider. This acquisition establishes ACS as one of the world’s largest pension plan administrators and a leading provider of outsourced health, welfare and relocation services.
In October 2010, we acquired TMS Health, LLC (“TMS”), a U.S.-based teleservices company that provides customer care services to the pharmaceutical, biotech and healthcare industries. Through TMS, we will improve communication between pharmaceutical companies, physicians, consumers and pharmacists. By providing customer education, product sales and marketing, and clinical trial solutions, we build on our ITO and BPO services we are already delivering to the healthcare and pharmaceutical industries.
In November 2010, we acquired Spur Information Solutions, Limited (“Spur”), one of the United Kingdom’s leading providers of parking enforcement computer software used. Spur’s core software helps governments implement and enforce local parking codes across municipalities. The acquisition strengthens our broad portfolio of services that support the transportation industry.
Additionally in 2010, we acquired two companies to further expand our distribution capacity:
In January 2010, we acquired Irish Business Systems Limited (“IBS”) to expand our reach into the small and mid-size business market in Ireland. IBS, a managed print services provider, has eight offices located throughout Ireland and is the largest independent supplier of digital imaging and printing solutions in Ireland.
In September 2010, we acquired Georgia Duplicating Products, Inc., an office equipment supplier. This acquisition furthers our strategy of supporting business customers across the U.S. with an expanding network of office technology providers.
