DXC Technology Expands Microsoft Footprint with Acquisition of eBECS

martinwolf Transaction Analysis
Financial Information
  • Transaction Value: N/A
Transaction Facts
  • DXC Technology (NYSE: DXC) announced today its acquisitions of Sable37, a leading Microsoft Dynamics 365 VAR, and eBECS, a Microsoft Gold Partner.
  • Starting from this month, Sable37 and eBECS will be combined with DXC’s Eclipse division.
Expanding Footprint with M&A
  • Microsoft Marketplace: DXC Eclipse is one of the largest independent Microsoft Dynamics systems integrators in the world, and the acquisitions will serve to strengthen its position as a global independent SI for Microsoft Dynamics 365. The combination of DXC Eclipse with Sable37 and eBECS will enable DXC to significantly expand its Dynamics 365 cloud capabilities across the U.K., Australia, New Zealand, India, UAE, Saudi Arabia, the U.S. and Canada.
  • Grand Scale: DXC Technology, formed last April by the combination of CSC and the Enterprise Services business of HPE, has expanded its footprint as a global end-to-end IT services giant. The company has 6,000 clients and 170,000 employees around the world with annual sales of around $26B. As part of its strategy to remain competitive in high-value services, DXC has been concentrating on making investments in companies centered around the full Microsoft business solutions stack with its strategic acquisitions. Acquiring Tribridge and Logicalis SMC last year, DXC also announced its acquisition of Australian Oracle partner M-Power Solutions.
  • Reaping Benefits: In what appears to be a rather unusual move, eBECS took on investment from DXC’s predecessor CSC (martinwolf advised CSC on the transaction) in November 2016. Less than two years later, both DXC and eBECS are in a seemingly strong position to reap benefits from this transaction.
  • Spinning Out: DXC has a busy year ahead as it integrates new acquisitions and deals. In May, the company is anticipating the closure of its three-way blockbuster deal that merges its U.S. public sector business with Vencore and KeyPoint Government Solutions (Vencore and Keypoint are both owned by private equity group Veritas Capital). The deal will create a new publicly-traded contractor with about $4.3B in annual revenue.
