ACS in Discussions to Acquire e-Services Group International

DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Affiliated Computer Services, Inc. (NYSE: ACS) today announced it is in discussions to purchase Caribbean-based e-Services Group International to expand its global delivery platform.

The addition of the business process outsourcing (BPO) and customer care company – with approximately 4,000 employees in Jamaica and St. Lucia – would provide ACS and its clients with a highly-trained, English-speaking workforce capable of handling complex business functions from a location and time zone convenient to North American businesses.

“ACS is committed to being a leading customer care provider to the global market,” said Tom Blodgett, executive vice president and group president of ACS Business Process Solutions. “ACS is seeking seasoned management and experienced employees to allow ACS to expand its capabilities and provide our clients with top quality customer care.”

Upon the completion of the acquisition of e-Services by ACS, no workforce restructuring is expected. e-Services would continue to be managed by its management team and operations would continue to be performed by e-Services’ employees at their current facilities. Furthermore, the clients and employees of e-Services would be backed by a FORTUNE 500 company offering a diversified suite of BPO solutions with demonstrated global delivery capabilities serving clients in more than 100 countries.

“Client service has been a hallmark of this company since we opened our doors,” said Patrick Casserly, president and CEO of e-Services. “ACS’ client-focused culture will fit well at e-Services and clients will continue to be serviced by our well regarded employees.”

ACS is one of the largest information communications and technology services providers in Jamaica, operating from a recently expanded facility with more than 1,600 employees. ACS serves companies among the communications, education, financial services, healthcare, insurance and manufacturing industries from Jamaica, providing payroll processing, transaction processing, human resources, call center support and finance & accounting services.
