CGI completes acquisition of Unico-01

CGI (NYSE: GIB) (TSX: GIB.A) announces that its subsidiary, CGI Technology and Solutions Australia Pty Limited, has completed its planned acquisition of Unico, a technology consultancy and systems integrator based in Melbourne, Australia, following successful approval by Australia’s Foreign Investment Review Board.

Unico, which was established in 1984, brings approximately 130 largely Melbourne-based professionals to CGI, significantly increasing its headcount in Australia. The team will join CGI’s existing business in Australia, which forms part of the UK and Australia Strategic Business Unit.

“Joining forces with Unico will help our clients further realize new opportunities through the digital transformation of their value chains,” said Tara McGeehan, CGI’s UK & Australia President. “Unico’s services, solutions and highly skilled employees strengthens our services portfolio and united end-to-end services capabilities in Australia. I warmly welcome the Unico team to the CGI family.”

“It’s clear that our organisations have a similar corporate culture and shared values,” said Mark Aston, Senior Vice President and Business Unit Leader for UK North and Australia at CGI. “We expect our integration to be smooth and successful, quickly delivering value to our three stakeholders – our clients, our shareholders and our professionals.

“We strongly believe that this merger will accelerate our diversification into new industries and provide the best growth opportunity across both organisations, including new career opportunities, access to extensive training and development, offshore expertise, and an extended client base.”

The merger, combined with the recent opening of CGI’s Space, Defence and Intelligence Hub in Adelaide, will expand and accelerate CGI’s footprint in Australia and its position as a leading provider of secure and flexible end-to-end services, including business and strategic IT consulting, systems integration, managed services and intellectual property-based business solutions.
