CGI to acquire Aussie tech consultancy Unico

CGI has announced that its subsidiary, CGI Technology and Solutions Australia Pty Ltd, has signed an agreement to acquire Unico, a technology consultancy and systems integrator based in Melbourne, Australia. The transaction is subject to approval by Australia’s Foreign Investment Review Board and is expected to close sometime next quarter. The acquisition will increase CGI’s footprint in Australia, with a focus on the Melbourne metro market, and in key industry sectors, including communications, government, utilities and financial services.

Established in 1984, Unico brings approximately 160 largely Melbourne-based professionals to CGI. The team will be integrated with CGI’s existing business in Australia, which forms part of the UK and Australia Strategic Business Unit. Tara McGeehan, CGI’s UK and Australia President, said the company looks forward to bringing its expertise and innovation to build an even stronger presence in the Australian market.

“We look forward to welcoming Unico into the CGI family. Right from our earliest discussions, it’s been clear that both organisations share similar values and capabilities, which we believe will result in a quick and successful integration. Here in the UK and Australia business, we pride ourselves on being a responsible business that does complex things well — and Unico shares a similar ethos,” McGeehan said.

The merger, combined with the opening of CGI’s Space, Defence and Intelligence Hub in Adelaide, will enhance and accelerate CGI’s position in Australia 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.
