The Gores Group Sells Millennium1 Solutions to Dimension Data plc

LOS ANGELES--()--The Gores Group today announced it has sold Millennium1 Solutions (“Millennium” or the “Company”) to an affiliate of Dimension Data plc (“Dimension Data”), a global information and communications technology services and solutions provider. The Gores Group acquired Millennium in 2013 through its Gores Small Capitalization Partners investment fund.

“The transformation of Millennium since 2013 has been astounding”

Headquartered in Toronto, Millennium is a leading business process outsourcing (“BPO”) solutions provider in Canada, and has a strong track record of providing end-to-end services to many premier Canadian clients in the financial services, insurance, and retail sectors. After the closing, Millennium will be combined with Merchants, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Dimension Data which provides customer management outsourcing solutions.

“The transformation of Millennium since 2013 has been astounding,” said Anthony Chirikos, Managing Director of The Gores Group. “We’ve thoroughly enjoyed working alongside Tom Band, Millennium’s CEO, and the Company’s talented leadership team to complete a complex carve-out of the business, divest non-core assets, and invest heavily in people, technology and infrastructure. Millennium has grown rapidly, added employees and facilities, and matured into a premier Canadian BPO services provider. We are confident that Millennium will continue to prosper alongside the Dimension Data and Merchants teams.”

Don Moffatt, Chairman of Millennium’s Board of Directors, added, “Gores has been an outstanding partner for Millennium, and I appreciate that they rolled up their sleeves and helped our managers build the Company into the strong business that it is today. Dimension Data and Merchants are a great fit for Millennium, and our customers and employees are in good hands and can expect a smooth transition.”

Petsky Prunier acted as the sole financial advisor to Millennium in this transaction.
