TYSONS, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--DXC Technology (NYSE:DXC), the world’s leading independent, end-to-end IT services company, today announced its intent to acquire the service business of EG A/S, one of the leading integrators of Microsoft Dynamics 365 in the Nordic region. The combination of EG with the existing DXC Eclipse business will extend DXC’s position as a leading global systems integrator for Microsoft Dynamics.
The acquisition of EG’s service division includes its Microsoft Dynamics, Infor M3 and SAP practices, which will be integrated into DXC Eclipse and DXC’s SAP practice. Financial terms were not disclosed. The transaction is expected to close in DXC’s fiscal fourth quarter ending March 31, 2019.
“The combination of EG with DXC Eclipse will extend DXC’s leadership as a Microsoft Dynamics 365 systems integrator, greatly enhancing our ability to address client needs in the Nordic region and globally,” said Mike Lawrie, DXC’s chairman, president and chief executive officer. “This also represents a significant investment for DXC in the Nordics, which is recognized as one of the most digitally capable areas in the world.”
Headquartered in Copenhagen, Denmark, EG’s service business was founded in 1977 and today is among the strongest Microsoft Dynamics partners, with best-of-breed consultants who possess deep industry domain knowledge. The unit has approximately 570 employees across the Nordic region, including Denmark, Norway, Sweden, and Poland.
“In DXC Technology, we have found a strategic partner with significant global capabilities that will benefit EG's customers as they embark on their digital transformation journeys,” said Mikkel Bardram, CEO, EG A/S. “In addition, EG’s employees will have an opportunity to contribute to the growth of DXC’s Microsoft Dynamics practice.”
EG offers mid-market and enterprise customers – some 4,000 in total – implementation and advisory services focused on ERP and CRM solutions, primarily within the retail, process, manufacturing and construction industries.
Acquisition of EG Service Strengthen DXC’s Nordic Footprint and Microsoft Capabilities
“The acquisition of EG’s service division will significantly enhance DXC’s Microsoft and SAP practices in the Nordic region,” said Joergen Jakobsen, vice president, Northern Europe, DXC Technology. “DXC will gain a strong, skilled workforce and a solid customer base – which will further extend DXC’s position as a leading IT-service provider in the Nordics.”
